It may seem like electric cars are quickly taking over the road and we are seeing them from more and more auto brands for good reasons. There are plenty of financial and environmental benefits that come with driving an electric car and Walt Massey Auto Group is here to highlight some of these benefits to help you decide if purchasing an electric car is right for you.


Did you know that there are federal, state, and local incentives that bring down the cost of buying or leasing an electric car? Depending on your car’s battery capacity a federal tax credit may be available to you.

You may also be eligible for local rebates and incentives depending on where you live and if you have installed a home charging station.

Less Fuel and Maintenance Costs

With an electric vehicle you won’t have to spend your money at the gas pump. Most drivers charge their cars overnight at home and wake up to a fully charged, ready to drive vehicle. You’re also never far from a charge with the growing number of public charging stations.

Electric motors have less parts to them and never require oil changes, new spark plugs, or fuel filters. The electric motor also helps decelerate the vehicle which extends the lifespan of your brake pads, in turn saving you on maintenance costs.


Electric cars are quick to accelerate and the electric motors produce peak torque better than gasoline engines. With the battery pack positioned in the middle, the vehicle’s center of gravity is lowered which provides better weight distribution.

Environmental Benefits

By choosing to drive an electric car you’ll be reducing pollution and greenhouse gasses around you. A fully electric car produces zero emissions, helps the planet, and benefits our health by keeping the air cleaner.
