Two words will suffice to convince you to go for an electric option, the next time you decide to buy a car- the environment‘. With changes in global temperature, rising sea levels, unprecedented climatic changes all which are a result of high carbon emissions, alternative energy is the only safe solution.
But there are other reasons why you should opt for an electric and electric ranger vehicle:
Low maintenance and operating cost: With soaring gasoline prices and increased maintenance charges, the cost of using and maintaining an electric vehicle is very little when compared to the other gas guzzlers out on the road. Not only will you save money on fuel, but will also ensure a reduced carbon footprint on your end to a greener cleaner tomorrow.
Affordability: A standard sized family car which can seat four to five comfortably will cost you more than you might be willing to invest for your first vehicle. If you also want all the essential upgrades and a bright paint job, the price will go up. An average family can cost anywhere between $25000 to $35000 depending on the manufacturer and its make and model. But an electric vehicle will cost you somewhere in the range of low $15000 to $20000. Of course, the better electric models will be a bit pricier, but then again they are still cheaper that way.
Financial incentives: In order to encourage people to opt for alternative fuel vehicles, the government offers certain tax rebates and discounts for people who buy electric and electric ranger vehicles. The federal government allows up to $7500 as tax credit for any electric vehicle purchased along with other attractive incentives. This is applicable for lease deals as well, making some of the expensive model prices slashed down by a quarter to the high $20000 range.
Electric cars have evolved and come a long way from those box prototypes that looked like a stiff breeze would tip them over. Today, it has becoming challenging to distinguish a hybrid from an electric ranger owing to its sleek design and features, with just as much power under the hood when compared with its traditional counterparts.
