Benefits of Electric Cars

2022 Hyundai Kona electric
Have you been thinking a lot about gas mileage lately? Who hasn’t? Astronomical gas prices have made the typical Omaha, NE commute much more expensive than it has been. So, it’s no wonder that electric vehicles like the Hyundai Kona Electric are so popular. Of course, there are also the environmental benefits of electric cars and the ability to lower one’s carbon footprint. In addition, there are federal tax credits available to those who purchase these vehicles. Let’s take a closer look at the many benefits of electric vehicles.



Tax and Utility Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Did you know that some utility companies in Iowa are offering rebates and other incentives to customers who purchase electric vehicles? Be sure to check with your utility provider to see what they have to offer. And, of course, the U.S. federal government offers a tax credit of up to $7,500 for drivers who purchase an electric car.

Other Financial Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Cheaper Atlantic road trips and tax breaks are not the only ways you’ll save when you buy an electric vehicle. EVs don’t have gas combustion engines and don’t use oil. That means you’ll never have to pay for another oil change or certain other types of maintenance.

Environmental Benefits of Electric Cars

The environmental benefits of electric cars almost go without saying. Fully electric cars like the Hyundai IONIQ 5 use no gas or oil, meaning they produce zero emissions and do not burn up fossil fuels. Even hybrids, like the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, use less gas and therefore produce fewer emissions.
