Frequently Asked Questions About Electric Car Ownership
Is it cheaper to charge an electric car than using gas?
Yes, it is usually cheaper to charge an electric car than to fill up a gas tank. However, each EV model will vary on the cost to charge it.
How much does it cost to charge an electric car?
The U.S. Department of Energy states that it costs approximately 10.7 cents per kWH. This translates to a cost of about .03 cents per mile while driving.
How much does it cost to charge an electric car at a public charging station?
The cost of charging an EV at a public charging station will vary based on the property owner. EV charging stations can be free, pay-as-you-go or subscription-based. You can charge your new Chevy EV at our local dealership for free!
Do electric cars need oil changes?
No. Since EVs are powered by an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine, they do not require oil changes. Ditch oil changes when you buy a new electric vehicle!
Do electric cars need to be serviced?
Yes, electric cars do require some routine maintenance. On the upside, electric vehicles have fewer internal parts and systems than cars with internal combustion engines, so they will require less service than cars with gas engines.
