Why Should You Choose an Electric Vehicle?

2021 Mercedes-Benz Vision EQS Front Angle


The benefits of electric cars include reduced maintenance requirements, increased efficiency, and quieter performance, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Our introductory guide covers the most important personal and environmental benefits of electric vehicles, so you can get excited about whatever comes next!

What Are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

South Riding and Centerville drivers are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the all-new 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS—the brand’s first fully-electric vehicle—and it isn’t at all difficult to see why. After all, the EQS will combine the luxury of the S-Class with all of the following benefits of electric vehicles:

  • Zero Emissions: The battery in your smartphone doesn’t give off exhaust, and neither does the battery in an electric vehicle. Instead, the battery simply powers up and powers down as you drive around and complete your daily errands.
  • Renewable Energy: Almost everyone knows about the most significant environmental benefit of electric vehicles! Unlike gasoline, electricity can be produced entirely through renewable sources like the sun and the wind.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Electric vehicles don’t use motor oil, and that means you’ll never have to worry about another oil change. Although maintenance is required for all vehicles, you will probably find that an electric powertrain is easier to maintain than a sensitive gas engine.
  • Quieter Touring: Since there’s no engine under the hood, your electric vehicle will be quieter as you drive through Ashburn and Chantilly. You might miss the engine roar at first, but once you’ve experienced an EV, we think you’ll have a hard time going back.
  • Performance: You don’t have to compromise on performance in order to enjoy a more efficient daily drive. Electric vehicles are just as fast as gasoline-powered vehicles, and since many vehicles include multiple electric motors, they’re often much faster.
