In an evolving world, you may be wondering about the benefits of driving an electric vehicle. To help provide insight for our neighbors in Peabody, Danvers, and Beverly, MA, we at Audi Peabody have compiled some information below about electric vehicles and the many advantages they offer. Read on to learn more!



Anatomy of an Electric Vehicle

So, what is an electric vehicle (EV)? Well, as opposed to a traditional car that uses gasoline or diesel as its fuel source, electric vehicles run either fully or partially on electricity. However, similar to conventional vehicles, electric vehicles come in many varieties, including the following:

  • Battery-powered electric vehicle (BEV): Synonymous with fully electric vehicles, their only force is the electric motor(s). Since they lack an internal combustion engine and use no gasoline, they are free of tailpipe emissions.
  • Hybrid electric vehicle (HEV): Runs on both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor that gets energy from the battery.
  • Plug-in hybrid (PHEV): Charges its batteries by plugging into an outlet. They also have a gasoline engine that powers the ride when the battery runs out.

There are other types of EVs beyond this list, too. Now that you have a better idea of what constitutes an EV, let's delve into reasons why they're beneficial.

Benefits of Driving an EV

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of an electric vehicle? Probably that it's environmentally conscious. While that's very true, and something we'll cover, there are other perks to driving an EV, such as:

  • Their quiet nature. Drivers of EVs experience less noise than those who drive gasoline or diesel cars. There is, of course, some noise from the wind and road, but that's about it. Also, the lack of gears means speeding up and slowing down are smoother actions.
  • Fewer stops at the pump. Since electric vehicles are charged at home instead of a gas station, money can be saved.
  • Less service required. EVs have fewer parts than traditional cars, so service appointments tend to be less frequent.
  • Environmentally friendly. Electric vehicles are emission free! This prevents air pollution and will make you feel good about doing your part to help the planet.

Although EVs require less frequent maintenance than their gasoline and diesel counterparts, they still need some TLC from time to time. Below, find out how we can assist with that.
