Electric vehicles are exciting. They are the biggest step in the evolution of the car and their importance can't be overstated. This puts them at the top of many people's list for their next auto. Before you dive in and buy or lease one, take some time and ask yourself the following questions:
- EVs are evolving rapidly and each new generation is going to bring greater levels of safety, performance, and efficiency. Do the vehicles currently available meet your needs?
- EVs are loaded with cutting edge technology. A lot of what you may know about auto maintenance no longer applies. You will have to service it at the dealership. Is there a dealership near enough to you to make this practical?
- EVs are still relatively new in the auto marketplace. Some manufacturers are producing their first models now. Do you have confidence in this new technology?
- Charging an EV, even at a level 2 charging station, takes longer than filling up a tank of gas. Does the EV you're looking at offer enough range for daily use without having to top off?
