6 Main Benefits Of EV Ownership


As battery technology advances, range increases, and charging becomes more convenient, more drivers than ever are taking advantage of the unique benefits that come with owning and driving an electric vehicle (EV). As the manufacturer of the world’s first mass-market EV, Nissan is at the forefront of the electric-driving revolution. As your local Nissan dealer, Crabtree Nissan is your partner on your EV journey – from sales and service to the many benefits and perks that come with making the switch to 100% electric driving.

EVs Are Energy Efficient

Electric motors are more efficient than internal combustion engines and traditional drivetrains at converting stored energy into movement. And many EVs also provide unique energy-efficient features like regenerative braking that convert the kinetic energy lost while decelerating into stored energy within the vehicle's battery.

EVs May Be Allowed In HOV Lanes And Designated Parking Spots


Depending on which city you live in, driving an EV could qualify you for an all-access pass to high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes regardless of your vehicle size or the number of passengers.2

In some locations, EVs can also provide you access to designated parking options. Where available, these green-painted or “EV-charging only” parking spots can be found in convenient locations and are reserved exclusively for EVs. Parking fees have even been waived in certain areas for hybrid or all-electric vehicles.3

EVs Are Eligible For Potential Tax Credits


Owning an EV comes with many financial perks, but one of the biggest is the ability to qualify for potential tax credits, rebates, and discounts. Depending on where you live and your personal tax situation, you could be eligible for potential tax credits and incentives from your state and your utility company. Please consult with your tax advisor about potential state tax credit eligibility.1

EVs Require Less Standard Maintenance


Compared to internal combustion engines, all-electric motors feature fewer moving parts —which can mean less maintenance and lower routine maintenance costs. And since they don’t require starters, fuel pumps, and exhaust systems, drivers don’t have to worry about these components wearing out over time. Additionally, EV owners avoid the costs that come with oil changes, filter changes, and other combustion-engine related maintenance.

EVs Operate More Quietly


Internal combustion engines can be loud and require an entire exhaust system to reduce the noise they produce. All-electric motors on the other hand produce very little sound while operating. This allows an EV driver to enjoy a quiet ride while reducing noise pollution.

Going 100% Electric Adds Up


Owning a Nissan electric vehicle offers a number of Electric Vehicle Benefits that extend beyond a lower cost of ownership.

No gas, no tailpipe emissions


So forget gas stations and put emissions testing behind you — in the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, they’re truly a thing of the past.

HOV lane access


When the majority of commuters get stuck in stop-and-go traffic, your Nissan electric vehicle could potentially gain you access to HOV and Carpool lanes.

Less maintenance


Spark plugs, timing belts, oil changes – forget about them. With far fewer moving parts than conventional internal combustion engines, there’s less to maintain in a Nissan electric vehicle. Even your brake pads get a break because electric vehicles use the motor to slow down, reducing wear.
