Always in saving mode.
A smart investment.
Naturally, it is not easily possible to compare prices of electric cars and cars with conventional engine. But when it comes to the actual running costs, the advantages are numerous:
- The cost of servicing: it’s lower than that of an internal combustion vehicle. There are far fewer moving parts with battery powered engines and oil changes are not required.
- Falling insurance costs: insurance companies slowly become aware that e-drivers are not only very environmentally aware, but also drive more carefully, causing fewer accidents. That’s why rates are starting to fall.1
- Lower taxation: for example, in Germany the tax rate is much lower than the one for cars with combustion engine or even electric cars are tax exempt for a defined number of years
- Free parking in urban areas and zero cost for entering low emissions zones.
