Electric vehicles (EVs) are more popular now than ever before. A lot of Morrisville and Apex drivers are switching from gas to electric, because EVs offer fuel savings and environmentally-friendly performance benefits. Models like the Cadillac LYRIQ were designed with state-of-the-art technology, such as an electrified powertrain and cutting-edge features. Before you make the switch, you probably have some questions to ask before buying an electric car. We’ve got you covered! Keep reading to learn more about what to consider in the meantime.
Range is one of the most important factors to consider before buying an EV. How far an EV can go on a single charge will determine whether it’s a good fit for your lifestyle. Do you keep most of your commutes local? Or, do you want an EV that can handle a road trip? The Cadillac LYRIQ, for example, can travel up to 314 miles on a full charge. That’s nearly the equivalent of a gas-powered car’s range on a full tank.
Rather than stopping at a local gas station for fuel, an EV will need to be charged at an in-home or public charging station. Charging is available at three levels:
In general, EVs are more expensive than gas-powered vehicles. But, you may be able to take advantage of federal, state, and local government incentives that’ll help you save on the car and/or the home charging installation. Our finance center can give you more information on the types of incentives you might qualify for!
No, you won’t need a gas-powered vehicle as a backup. Electric vehicles, such as the Cadillac LYRIQ, can be driven in your daily life. As long as you keep up with routine charging, your EV will serve you well, whether you’re running errands around Apex or taking a road trip outside of Durham.
“Should I buy or lease?” is one of the most common questions our team is asked. As mentioned above, EVs are usually more expensive than gas-powered vehicles, but you can buy or lease the vehicle you want. Leasing is a smart choice for drivers who want a new vehicle every few years, while buying is a good option for those who want to eventually own their vehicles. Our finance team will help you work out the details.
