Important Benefits of Electric Cars to Know About

2022 Chevrolet Bolt EV Charging

Getting behind the wheel of a Chevy Bolt EV is a great way to escape rising gas prices. However, there are several other benefits of electric vehicles besides a more affordable Puyallup commute. From generous government incentives to a less harsh impact on the environment, there’s a lot that EVs have to offer. Keep reading with Sunset Chevrolet to learn all about the benefits of electric cars.

Government Rebates and Tax Credits

Buying an electric vehicle like the Chevy Bolt EUV can make you eligible for tax credits and exemptions from both the federal government and the state of Washington. For example, the U.S. federal government provides a tax credit for drivers who purchase an electric or hybrid car, and the state of Washington exempts sales tax for the purchase of an electric vehicle.

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.

Environmental Benefits of Electric Cars

Everyone from the government to concerned individuals is talking about how to reduce emissions. Part of the environmental benefits of electric cars is that they produce zero emissions. It’s a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.

Financial Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Driving a fully electric vehicle means the only stops you’ll be making at Tacoma gas stations will be for coffee. This represents enormous savings, considering the volatile nature of gas prices.

Benefits of Buying a Chevy Electric Vehicle

Did you know that Chevy will cover the cost of installation and getting a permit when you purchase or lease a Chevy Bolt EV or Bolt EUV? This is important because while your EV will come with a cord that you can plug into an existing wall outlet, a home charging station will shave several hours off the time it takes to charge your car. However, this requires installation by a licensed electrician. So, it’s good for peace of mind to know that Chevy will cover that.
