Benefits of Owning Electric Car
There are a multitude of benefits of owning an electric car that can benefit both your wallet and the environment.
Reduced running costs
Owning an electric car will allow you to realise cost savings, both from a maintenance perspective and everyday running costs associated with refueling. Where refueling a standard petrol or diesel car can cost anywhere between £50 and £80, an electric car can be charged for as little as £5 for a full charge.
Electric cars are also exempt from tax and congestion charges associated with populated city centres such as London.
Reduced impact on the environment
An electric car such as the IONIQ Electric has zero exhaust emissions, making it one of the most environmentally friendly forms of transport. Electric cars also run from renewable energy which reduces your greenhouse gas emissions further.
Reduced maintenance costs
As electric cars have much fewer moving parts, they are less prone to breaking or needing maintenance regularly, therefore reducing ownership costs further.
Improved health benefits
With the reduced emissions comes improved health benefits; there are less toxic fumes in the air therefore the air we breathe is cleaner and much healthier.
