Benefits of Electric Vehicles

There are many benefits of electric vehicles, and Rusty Wallis Volkswagen wants to show you that an electric car will fit your Dallas lifestyle better than you think. Electric cars typically come packed full of the latest and greatest auto technology. Other benefits of electric cars that will make your rides around Rockwall more enjoyable include:

  • Reduced Maintenance: Fully electric vehicles don’t utilize engine oil, so there’s never a need for oil changes! 
  • Zero Emissions: One of the environmental benefits of electric cars is near-zero tailpipe emissions. Most electric vehicles don’t have an exhaust system, so exhaust emissions are not a byproduct of electric cars.
  • Renewable Energy: Another environmental benefit of electric cars is that they typically use renewable energy. Electric cars often run on renewable energy resources such as water, solar, or wind.
  • Performance: Who doesn’t enjoy the thrill of almost instantaneous acceleration? Electric cars provide unbeatable performance with near-instantaneous torque on Rockwall roads!
  • Quieter Drive: One significant but often overlooked benefit of electric vehicles is the peaceful ride. Electric cars don’t produce any engine noise!
  • Financial Incentives: Electric cars often qualify you to receive tax incentives. You might be able to get up to a $7,500 tax credit just by purchasing an EV.

There are numerous benefits of electric cars, and the team at Rusty Wallis Volkswagen invites you to come and experience them for yourself!

What to Do Before Buying an Electric Car

  1. Prepare Your Garage: You’ll need to prepare your garage for home charging. Research your Level 1 and Level 2 charging options. Then, have your at-home charging station professionally installed because it will likely be your main method of EV charging.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Map out available local charging stations from companies like PlugShare or Chargeway. It’s good to know where stations are wherever you go, whether local drives or traveling long-distance.
