Contrary to popular belief, electric vehicles have been around for a while now. As a matter of fact, the first all-electric car was developed way back in the 1830s. What’s new about EV’s is that only recently they’ve started to compete with conventional fuel-powered cars for a share in the automotive market. In recent times, battery and charging technology have advanced significantly, thanks to which EV’s have finally become feasible alternatives to gas and diesel powered cars.
The best EVs available today make a compelling pitch to car buyers. In addition to being packed with technology, electric cars are easy to drive, practical, and relatively inexpensive to run. While their sticker prices may be a tad higher than their gasoline powered counterparts, you get great tax rebates and incentives which can reduce the cost by thousands, regardless of whether you’re leasing or buying.
