Three Reasons to Go Electric

June 21st, 2016 by

Electric cars are the newest in automobile energy-efficient engineering, and smart’s all-electric car is making strides in the alternative-fuel market. Safe, compact, and easy to whip into a parallel parking spot, the smart Electric Coupe runs not on gasoline, but electricity. Considering making the switch? Let these perks help you decide.

Serious Savings:

Not only is a brand-new smart electric car affordable upfront (starting at $12,490 MSRP), but it also saves in the long run. The average person spends over $2,000 in gasoline each year; an at-home charging station and the electricity required to charge a smart Electric Coupe is a fraction of that cost. Bonus? Many electric car owners could be eligible for a $7,500 tax break.

Being Green:

If you’ve ever witnessed the smog in cities with millions of drivers—like New Delhi or Beijing—you’ve experienced the negative effects of automobile (and industrial) emissions on the environment. The smog is so dense in some cities, such as Mexico City, that officials have banned cars from the area’s roads one day per week. Choosing an electric car helps to curb the environmental impact of driving by emitting zero CO2 fumes.

Freedom and Independence:

The majority of the world’s sources of petroleum are located in politically unstable countries. When gas prices rise, electric car owners do not feel the economic effects of these turbulent trade relations.
