Embrace the Future of Driving with EV Models at Parkway Buick GMC


EV models are becoming more popular, making them a great choice for your next car, truck, or SUV. EV stands for Electric vehicle, meaning you use a powertrain that doesn't propel itself forward with just a gas-powered engine. These vehicles are fun to drive, offer numerous benefits to save you money, and can be easier to maintain than gas-powered vehicles. With a growing network of easily-accessible charging stations and available tax incentives, owning an EV can make a world of difference for you.

Which EV is the Right Fit?

Thankfully, you'll get more than one type of EV to work with. While we don't recommend any one type over others, we encourage you to explore the options and find what best suits your lifestyle.

Electric-Powered

Fully electric models offer the best savings on maintenance and fuel while offering the smallest carbon footprint.

Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-in hybrid models offer a rechargeable electric motor partnered with a gas-powered powertrain to help you extend your available range. You'll need to plug in at home or on the road to juice the vehicle's battery.

TRADITIONAL HYBRID

Traditional hybrid models come with an electric motor and gas-powered engine, recharging as you drive. However, you might not benefit from tax credits and other advantages.

Why Will EV Models Benefit You?

More than just exceptional cars, trucks, and SUVs, EVs can make your life better and more enjoyable. Reasons include:

FEDERAL TAX CREDIT

EV models can qualify for a federal tax rebate of up to $7,500.

LOCAL INCENTIVES

You can take advantage of even more savings from the state you live in or your utility company.

LOW COST TO OWN

EV owners will spend at least half as much on maintenance and repair based on Consumer Reports.

FUEL UP AT HOME

can charge your car after a long day while you sleep or at a network of readily-available public chargers around you.

QUICK AND QUIET

You'll get quick, smooth acceleration, better handling, and a ride that's quiet from the get-go.

BEST OF ELECTRIC AND GAS POWER

Plug-in hybrid models offer electric range for shorter trips and gas-powered propulsion for long vacations.

OWNING AN EV

Understanding Charging

Charging times vary depending of the type of charger used.
Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.
Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible.
Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.

Charging from Home

For plugin hybrid vehicles a standard outlet (Level 1) will be enough for overnight charging. For battery electric vehicles, a Level 2 charger will require professional installation by a licensed electrician. If you live in an apartment or condo, consider talking with the property owner about installing a charger or use a nearby public charger. Talk to our sales staff to find out more about charging from home.

Battery Care

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number will continue to increase. If you can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged most days and avoid extremely hot temperatures, you can expect your maintenance to be minimal.
