What Are the Benefits of Electric Cars?

2022 Kia Niro EV in the woods

It’s getting more and more expensive to keep the average car running on Auburn roads with soaring gas prices. That’s why so many drivers are turning to electric cars like the Kia EV6. One of the many benefits of electric vehicles is never having to pay for another tank of gas, and even hybrid vehicles use far less gas than conventional cars. Of course, there are also the environmental benefits of electric cars and the ability to lower one’s carbon footprint. On top of that, the government even offers money-saving incentives to drivers who make the EV switch. Read on with Sunset Kia of Auburn as we take a closer look at the many benefits of electric cars and hybrid vehicles.



Benefits of Electric Cars: Little to No Fuel Costs

Perhaps of all the benefits of electric vehicles, a more affordable Federal Way commute is the most obvious. Hybrid vehicles like the Kia Sorento Hybrid use between 30 and 60 percent less gas than conventional cars. And, of course, all-electric vehicles like the Kia Niro EV use no gas at all.

Benefits of Electric Vehicle: Better Environmental Impact

Everyone knows about the environmental benefits of electric cars. A hybrid vehicle creates significantly fewer emissions since it uses less gas, while a fully electric vehicle, like the Kia Soul EV, creates none at all, which is good news to Sumner drivers who are looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Benefits of Electric Cars: Government Incentives

There are multiple tax benefits of electric cars. The federal government provides a generous tax credit of $2,500-$7,500 for drivers who purchase an electric or hybrid car, and the State of Washington offers sales tax exemptions. This can significantly offset the cost of purchasing one of these vehicles.

Tax Benefits of Electric Vehicles

  • Federal Government – tax credit of $2,500-$7,500
  • State of Washington – up to $1,300 in sales tax exemption for purchase of an EV, sales tax exemption for the purchase and installation of a home charging station.
