Six main benefits of EV ownership

Compared to gas-powered vehicles, EVs come with many real-world benefits. Here are six:

energy efficient

EVs are energy efficient

Electric motors are more efficient than internal combustion engines and traditional drivetrains at converting stored energy into movement. And many EVs also provide unique energy-efficient features like regenerative braking that convert the kinetic energy lost while decelerating into stored energy within the vehicle's battery.

less maintenance

EVs require less standard maintenance

Compared to internal combustion engines, all-electric motors feature fewer moving parts —which can mean less maintenance and lower routine maintenance costs. And since they don’t require starters, fuel pumps, and exhaust systems, drivers don’t have to worry about these components wearing out over time. Additionally, EV owners avoid the costs that come with oil changes, filter changes, and other combustion-engine related maintenance.


EVs operate more quietly

Internal combustion engines can be loud and require an entire exhaust system to reduce the noise they produce. All-electric motors on the other hand produce very little sound while operating. This allows an EV driver to enjoy a quiet ride while reducing noise pollution.

tax credit eligible

EVs are eligible for potential tax credits

Owning an EV comes with many financial perks, but one of the biggest is the ability to qualify for potential tax credits, rebates, and discounts. Depending on where you live and your personal tax situation, you could be eligible for potential tax credits and incentives from your state and your utility company. Please consult with your tax advisor about potential state tax credit eligibility.1

hov lanes and parking

EVs may be allowed in HOV lanes and designated parking spots

Depending on which city you live in, driving an EV could qualify you for an all-access pass to high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes regardless of your vehicle size or the number of passengers.2 In some locations, EVs can aso provide you access to designated parking options. Where available, these green-painted or “EV-charging only” parking spots can be found in convenient locations and are reserved exclusively for EVs. Parking fees have even been waived in certain areas for hybrid or all-electric vehicles.3
