Six main benefits of EV ownership
Compared to gas-powered vehicles, EVs come with many real-world benefits. Here are six:
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.
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, dri
