Understanding Electric Vehicles


Electric cars are the future, and Chevy has some of the best EV cars on the market. Chevy adds new features, designs, and technology to our EV lineup every year. We’ll cover the basics of EVs and tell you about Chevy’s EV lineup.

What are EVs?

Electric cars are fun to drive vehicles powered by a battery instead of a gas engine. They deliver a more responsive and smoother driving experience along with other perks such as less scheduled maintenance, saving more on gas, and even tax incentives.

There are three types of EVs, all of which rely on electric and battery power to varying degrees. Which EV is right for you?


EV vs. PHEV vs. Hybrid


The choice depends on your range, charging options, and budget. Typically, hybrids have the longest range since they also can incorporate gas. However, all-electric vehicles produce the least carbon emissions and offer the best savings and tax incentives. Also, the hybrids give you the convenience of not having to plug in your vehicle to charge before it can start.

Benefits of Owning an Electric Vehicle

Here are the primary benefits of owning an electric vehicle:

  • Eco-friendly: EVs are the most eco-friendly option since they don’t contribute to GHG emissions.
  • Cost-saving: EVs don’t require gas to run, so you won’t have to pay high gas prices.
  • Less maintenance: There are fewer components and mechanisms that need maintenance.
  • Tax reduction: The government offers incentives and tax reductive for shifting to electric cars.
  • Less noise pollution: EVs are quieter than fuel-oriented cars.
  • Smoother drive: EVs have a higher level of torque, providing smooth acceleration to the wheels.
