Electric cars’ popularity is on the rise all over the world; however, there are people who still doubts the benefits they can bring.
Besides helping you save money; they also help the environment because, by not emitting polluting gases, they generate a positive impact on the health of society.
We present you 5 reasons that can help you decide on purchasing an electric car.
Electric cars don’t emit greenhouse effect gases or contaminants, improving community’s health and protecting the environment.
- They are noiseless
Since EVs don’t need a fossil-fueled engine, they don’t emit noises or vibrations, improving commuting experience compared to internal combustion vehicles.
A clear example is Mexico´s Metrobus System.
It’s important to note that current EVs have the same power as conventional Internal Combustion Engine vehicles. Besides, they have better acceleration response. EVs are designed to take advantage of the kinetic energy generated while braking; that’s how they recharge a small percentage of the battery.
- Help you save money
For Mexico’s residents, if you own an EV, you’re not required to pass the annual verification and you are eligible for tax exemptions.
If that reason is not enough, power consumption fees in Mexican Peso are minimal compared to daily fuel consumption costs of a conventional vehicle.
For example, if your daily commute is 30 miles long, you spend $20 MXN (approximately $1 USD), while the kilowatt is priced at $3.2 MXN (approximately $0.14 USD). After 3 years, you will have saved up to 300% compared to a conventional ICE vehicle.
- Require less maintenance
Electric engines use 90% less components than IC engines, therefore maintenance is easier for EVs.
They present fewer drawbacks regarding friction, temperature and tear faults, the most common issues on regular cars.
After reading the points above, what do you think of EVs?
It’s a great time to start 2022 with an EV and not only help the environment and improve the quality of life of your community, but also save some money, don’t you think?
