Are you ready for a new electric vehicle? Dan Cummins Chevrolet Buick of Georgetown isn’t just a place to find heavy-duty diesel trucks or gas-powered sports cars; it’s actually the perfect electric car dealership, too. Chevy dealerships offer an excellent balance of an extensive electric vehicle selection with outstanding prices - unlike other luxury electric car dealers who outprice most Americans.
Switching to electric is an exciting prospect for some, but for others, it may seem intimidating. Don’t you leave a great deal behind, like reliable refueling stops and enjoyable driving performance, when you switch from gas to electric? Believe it or not, there are plenty of myths out there about switching to electric - the most offensive of all being the myth that electric cars have to be more expensive! Read on to get some informative details about the actual benefits of switching to an electric car, including some surprising, little-known perks, details on the latest offerings from Chevy, and finally, a close look at the best place to shop electric.
The benefits of going electric are about more than just helping the environment, although that’s nothing to shrug at. Electric vehicles consume less energy, require fewer refuelings, and have drastically lower emissions that harm the environment. Emissions that have been attributed to climate change, according to multiple environmental studies.
However, you also save money when you go electric. Start by looking at tax breaks, including a federal tax incentive for electric car vehicles and a tax credit aimed at reducing the purchase cost of an electric car. Some states offer their own additional tax incentives, and the federal government has pledged to introduce additional rebates when Americans switch older, less efficient gas vehicles for an electric model. Consider this a discount for doing your part.
Then, of course, there are the savings on fuel. Gas prices may be famous for their fluctuations, rising prices according to political events and consumer demand, but fueling up on gasoline is persistently a burden to many Americans. Charging an electric vehicle is far cheaper than paying for gasoline, even in areas of the country with higher electricity prices.
Even if there are lower-cost gas vehicles on the market, you still save more when you switch to electric. In fact, an MIT study reported by The New York Times revealed electric cars have not only the lowest emissions but the lowest cost over time. Compared to gas-powered cars, hybrids were slightly more economical in the long run. Still, when considering monthly costs to the driver, there was no question that electric cars are the most cost-efficient - alongside being the most fuel-efficient, too.
The latest electric vehicles from Chevrolet are impressive standouts, each of which represents an affordable way to switch to electric. Chevy offers two electric models for now, although there’s more to come in the future as Chevy’s parent company, General Motors, has expressed a commitment to going all-electric. Given the quality of Chevy’s current offerings, this momentous change will likely occur without the need to compromise (or drop) their most popular models like the Tahoe and Silverado. If anything, these vehicles are likely to improve as General Motors approaches each of them with fresh, forward-thinking engineering.
Just look to the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV as an example. This electric vehicle is more than an environmentally conscious hatchback; it’s a fully tech-enhanced machine that’s comfortable, stylish, and a great on-road performer, too. Its cabin is ergonomic and refined, offering features like a push-button shifter and On Pedal Driving that enable you to enjoy the Bolt EV’s fast and sprightly powertrain. Most importantly, though, the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV offers an outstanding driving range of up to 259 miles on a full charge. And now, thanks to its multiple charging options, there are more ways to juice up.
Even better, the latest Bolt EV has been redesigned and set at an even lower price. New features like a classically inspired interior, better infotainment tech, and more advanced active safety features make the already reliable Bolt EV a winner for 2022. This hatchback builds on previous successes, including a 2017 Motor Trend “Car of the Year” award, while making their electric car more attainable. In other words, there’s no better time to make the switch to electric.
Chevy is expanding its options to accommodate a wider range of drivers, too. Take the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV - the compact SUV-styled option that’s more spacious and hardier than the Bolt EV. This all-new electric SUV has bold, aerodynamic styling, inside of which is the most advanced cabin that Chevy has to offer. Just look to its available Super Cruise driving assistance feature, which combines cruise control-style tech and LiDAR mapping to automate your commute. This is the beginning of revolutionary, hands-free driving. Meanwhile, ultra-comfortable seating, multiple smartphone charging stations, One Pedal Driving, Regen on Demand to restore energy while you drive, and many other safety and luxury technologies offer ultimate conveniences you didn’t know you needed.
The Bolt EUV performs like a dream, too. Enable Sport Mode at the push of a button to supercharge your drive and enjoy the most horsepower and torque possible. It steers lightly, feels agile despite its larger size, and has responsive, quick braking. Of course, its electric-powered fuel economy is impressive as well. You get a driving range of up to 250 miles, multiple options for charging up, and a driving experience that doesn’t compromise power in exchange for fuel economy.
