Impact of Electric Vehicles
The long list of cars you can choose from in 2016 when it comes to affordability and efficiency is endless, but there is one type of car that stands above the rest: the electric car (EV). Driving an EV is not just an excellent way to save money; it is also a convenient way to lower your personal impact on the environment.
Good for Your Wallet
Depending on the EV you get, there’s no telling how much you can save. But one thing is for sure: you will no longer be wasting money on gasoline. It’s difficult to discuss “miles per gallon” when talking about EVs, since they don’t use gallons of gas to begin with, but the 2017 Mitsubishi i-MiEV gets a MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) of 112.
Good for the Environment
EVs are remarkably better for the environment than traditional gas-fueled cars, as they produce fewer greenhouse gases, reduce the amount of pollutants in the air we breathe, and are generally more environmentally friendly to produce. Opting to drive an EV is a great way to make a change.
