The Benefits of Buying Electric

If you are in the market for a new vehicle to drive in Northern California, there is a good chance that you have considered buying an electric vehicle. There are more electric vehicle options than ever before, which makes it easier to find a model that suits your lifestyle. But is an electric vehicle right for you? If you aren't sure if you should get an electric vehicle, it might be a good idea to consider the benefits of buying electric during your search for your next new BMW. Here are some key reasons that you might want to drive an electric vehicle from BMW of Chico.

Why Consider an EV?

Improved Driving Range

It used to be a matter of concern that you could not drive all that far in an electric vehicle on one charge. Thankfully, those days are in the past. BMW electric models have driving ranges that let you take them out on lengthy road trips with confidence. The BMW i4 has a driving range of up to 270 miles, and the BMW iX has a driving range of up to 324 miles.

Environmental Benefits

When you drive a fully electric BMW vehicle around Sacramento, you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that it has zero tailpipe emissions. As more drivers choose to drive electric, the sooner the benefits of electric vehicle technology will become evident. When you buy an electric vehicle, you will be doing your part.

Financial Savings and Benefits

After buying an electric vehicle, you will probably notice pretty quickly how fast your savings on trips to the gas station add up. In addition to saving on gas, you can also reap the benefits of government tax credits and financial incentives that you can get when you buy an electric vehicle. For example, the state of California offers drivers up to $2,000 toward the purchase of an electric vehicle. Some California residents can qualify for additional financial incentives when they replace an old vehicle with a low emission vehicle, or simply by buying an electric vehicle.

Plenty of Charging Options

In the past, the only place you could count on to charge your electric car was at home. However, a nationwide system of electric vehicle charging stations has changed that. When you drive a BMW electric vehicle, you can stop at one of the more than 700 Electrify America charging stations and recharge your vehicle on the go. When you buy a new BMW electric vehicle, you can also get two years of complimentary 30-minute fast charges. When you want to charge your vehicle overnight at home, you can install a BMW Wallbox, and charge your battery from zero to 100 percent in less than 10 hours. You can also use the complimentary Flexible Fast Charger that comes with every BMW i4 and iX, which is compatible with any 120-volt or 240-volt outlet and can charge your vehicle from zero to 100 percent in less than 12 hours in a 240-volt outlet.
