Many predict 2017 will be the year that the demand for electric cars will rise. However, actual sales figures still show that traditional cars are still what people want. This article will help people understand why electric cars are a must-buy. Here are five reasons to buy electric cars now. 

Maintenance costs

Yes, buying an electric car is probably more expensive than acquiring a traditional car. In the long run, it turns out to be more profitable. With no clutch and other mechanical elements of expensive repair, the plug-ins add up to fewer maintenance costs. Hundred percent electric cars are less prone to breakdowns. The reason: it does not incorporate wear components like an exhaust pipe, spark plugs, oil filter, injection devices, toothed belts, clutch, engine oil and gear. In this way, workshop visits can be minimized.

Cost Decrease While Others Increase

The price of energy that moves electric cars is now much cheaper than that of fossil fuels, according to GreenCarReports. Electric cars battery prices are falling fast and this is why more car companies decide to renew their fleet by introducing electric cars, especially in the face of a future in which the prices of gas oil and gasoline are expected to increase.

Environment

Not only electric cars do not generate noise, they do not emit odors too. And they do not produce toxic gasses or deplete important resources. Electric cars powered by electricity from renewable sources generate only one gram of CO2 per kilometer thus allowing one to help the environment in the long run. With this, one should add that more and more government administrations reward the use of non-polluting electric cars through exemption of toll payments, parking areas and reduction of taxes.

Good Looks

Electric cars have a good reputation when it comes to its styling and looks and this is one of the reasons why one should choose an electric vehicle, according to Forbes. They are innovative and pioneering and most companies that have electric cars in their fleet demonstrate responsibility, commitment, and vision of the future.

Dynamics 

This will be the reason that will most surprise those who ask, given the widespread belief that electric cars are neither powerful nor fast, and they are less fun to drive. But many car manufacturers claim that compared to gasoline and moderate diesel engines with low displacement and low torque, electric cars are real kings of acceleration, without engine noise or annoying vibrations. The high and constant torque guarantees strength at start-up.

Thus, electric cars are authentic urban vehicles and, as such, ideal for moving quickly through the city. If one would be looking for the best electric cars to buy, the Tesla Model 3, Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Bolt EV are the perfect recommendations.
