Are electric cars worth the investment?

electric vehicle batteries leesburgElectric vehicles are becoming more popular these days, and the allure is affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. Most people are attracted to the fact that they are great on the environment and require significantly fewer trips to the gas station. It sounds good but what does owning an electric car entail? What kind of upkeep do they need?

Most electric vehicles cost more than a typical car that runs on gasoline, so that begs the question: Is an all-electric vehicle worth the investment?

Cheaper to run:

Even though the cost for an electric vehicle is more upfront, it more than makes up for it in the amount of money saved in gas. The price of gasoline in the US has been rising, but the cost of electricity has stayed the same. With improvements in renewable energy, it is only going to get better from here on out. Many states offer incentives and subsidies to consumers who purchase electric cars.

Less engine noise:

Along with less environmental pollution, an electric car also produces less noise pollution. They are so quiet the manufacturers have to add sound to them so pedestrians crossing the street can hear them.

Can be charged at home or work:

Charge your car while you sleep or work. There are more and more charging stations being installed every day, making charging your vehicle even more accessible. Entire fleets of vehicles can be charged in no time with smart EV charging systems.

Easier to maintain:

Believe it or not, an electric car is more comfortable to manage than an internal combustion engine because it has less moving parts that could break down.

Environmentally Friendly:

It’s no secret that these innovative vehicles have zero admissions and therefore do not produce harmful CO2 into the atmosphere. Which is always a good thing.

On Monday 8-13-18 I sent an email requesting info on batteries for my 36V Ezgo.

In less than an hour I received a phone call from "Scott" who was extremely knowledgeable and gave me great answers to my questions. He instilled so much confidence in me that I abandoned my plan to call and get quotes from three places. Yours was the first business I called. He arranged for an install today 8-15-18 between 1:00 and 2:00. Much to my delight your crew arrived a bit early and within about 20 minutes or so the new batteries were installed the cart was test driven and the work was complete. I didn't get the name of the two gentlemen who did the work but I can assure you they are great ambasssdors for your company. They were friendly, jovial and professional. They made sure I knew I could call anytime I had a question or a problem.

In today's world customer service seems to be lacking at almost every level. Your company had earned a customer for life because of three of your employees and I will share the name "Battery Power" at every opportunity.
