Key Benefits of Electric Cars

  • Zero Emissions: One of the primary environmental benefits of electric cars is that they can eliminate tailpipe emissions as most EVs don’t even have an exhaust system.
  • Renewable Energy: EVs can use renewable energy resources such as solar, wind, or even water, which is another one of the important environmental benefits of electric cars.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Full electric vehicles don’t require motor oil, so there’s no need for routine oil changes.
  • Quieter Drive: One of the EV benefits that you are sure to enjoy is the quiet ride. Without an internal combustion engine, you’ll serenely cruise the streets of Cranston, RI.
  • Performance: With advancements in EV technology, new electric cars like the MINI Cooper Electric Hardtop 2 Door can deliver near-instantaneous torque, which will get you up to speed in a hurry on Cranston, RI-area highways.

What to Do Before You Buy an EV

Owning an electric vehicle is a bit different than owning a conventional gas-powered car. Here are some tips on what to do before you upgrade to an EV:

  1. Prepare Your Garage: At-home charging will most likely be your primary electric vehicle charging method, so you’ll want to research your Level 1 and Level 2 charging options and then have your home charging system installed.
  2. Find Local Charging Stations: Whether driving in and around Newport, RI or traveling long-distance, it is helpful to know where the nearest charging station is. MINI of Warwick offers an online EV charging station finder, and companies like PlugShare and Chargeway provide convenient apps that can help you locate charging stations across the U.S. and Canada.
  3. Explore Incentives: Many new EVs are eligible for a federal tax credit that can be as high as $7,500 depending on the type of electric vehicle you purchase.
