You can connect further to the world and the people around you. Check out some of the features:

  • Zero emissions: One of the biggest benefits of purchasing an electric car is that you are nearly eliminating your tailpipe emissions. For the most part, electric cars don’t have an exhaust system at all. This means that exhaust emissions can’t be a byproduct of the vehicle’s operation.
  • Renewable energy: Electric cars are built to adapt to the changes of our time. They can use renewable energy resources to be charged. Whether that be solar, wind, or water power. Electric vehicles are part of the future. 
  • Reduced maintenance: The most common maintenance activities on a standard vehicle are oil changes and brake system maintenance. Completely electric vehicles don’t require engine oil so that eliminates the routine. Another impressive feature is the regenerative braking systems. These reduce your need for using the brakes and thus lowers the maintenance rates and costs.
  • Quieter rides: One benefit of electric vehicles is that drivers can enjoy a peaceful ride. Silence is golden, and a calm cabin makes your ride even more enjoyable.
  • Performance: Electric vehicles provide next-gen level performance, because they are built for the next generation. Electric motors can provide almost instantaneous torque giving you an unbelievable speed on the road. 

The benefits of an electric vehicle seem unlimited. If you would like to explore the details then you can check our services at Honda of Watertown. We are here to help you find the electric vehicle that is perfect for you and your family – explore our inventory today!

How to Prepare for Bringing Your EV Home

  • Prep your garage: Charging stations are becoming more common, but they aren’t as common as a gas station. In order to prepare, you will need to set up a home charging station. You can look into a few options with different charging times. You can get your charging system installed, and it’s very likely that this will be your predominant charging method. 
  • Find the local charging spots: Since charging stations aren’t as common, you should map out the charging stations in your local area. Plugshare and Chargeway are examples of charging companies – you should also look into specific chargers. If you are doing any long distance travel it’s a good idea to map out the charging stations on the way. This way you will be prepared for any situation. 
  • Explore Incentives: Oftentimes there are incentives and tax credits available for electric vehicle drivers. You may be eligible for up to a $7,500 tax credit for buying the car.
