An Electric Vehicle FAQ for Ann Arbor, MI Drivers
More car owners are turning to electric cars thanks to rising gas prices and the desire to protect the environment. Even with all the recent focus on EVs, many car buyers will have questions about the technology, mileage, recharging, and impact on the environment.
LaFontaine Buick GMC Ann Arbor, has put together this FAQ to help answer your questions.
How do EVs help the environment?
EVs don’t produce any tailpipe emissions, a significant cause of air pollution. They also have lower carbon emissions (greenhouse gases) than gas-powered vehicles, making them better for the environment.
What’s the Difference Between Hybrid and Electric Vehicles?
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs or EVs) operate solely on an electric battery. You must plug them into a power source to recharge, whether at home or at a public charging station. Plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) can operate via electric or gas power.
How far can EVs go?
EVs have improved vastly over the last few years. Many of today’s models have an estimated driving range of over 200 miles.
How can I Recharge my EV?
To recharge, you must plug into a power source, whether at home or a public EV charging station. Most models come with a standard port, but you can also get back on the road faster charging with a Level 2 or Level 3 charging station.
