Buying an EV in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Guide For Buying an Electrified Vehicle in Fort Wayne, IN

Why Buy an EV in Fort Wayne?

You might be shocked to hear this. Or it may recharge your passion for alternative fuel vehicles. But either way, you can plug into a better, more efficient way to drive in Fort Wayne. Ok, we're just about out of puns, but you get the point. Electric Vehicles (EVs) are designed to improve the quality of your commute and start a path to a cleaner future.

By going green with an EV, you can save more green. And that means you'll have more money to spend on your vacation trip out of Fort Wayne. But here's a few more reasons why buying an EV could be a great choice for you.

The Difference Between Hybrids, Plug-in Hybrids, and EVs

But first, we'll distinguish three of the most popular alternative fuel options. Gas consumption is the biggest difference between an EV, a plug-in hybrid, and a hybrid.

Traditional Hybrid Cars

Hybrid models automatically utilize electric power during short commutes to reduce fuel consumption and rely on gas power for longer drives. They have dual power sources that work together to provide greater efficiency. And their batteries are recharged during a process called regenerative braking. It's a feature that replenishes battery power when you apply brake pressure.

Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-in Hybrids are similar to traditional hybrid vehicles. The difference is that plug-in hybrids have larger batteries that require recharging by plugging into a Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3 charger. The main advantage here is that you can select to drive without using any gas for the legnth of your vehicle's electric range.

Electric Vehicles

With fully electric models, you'll rely solely on electric power. You will never need to stop at a gas station-unless you're looking for snacks during your commute. It's very convenient for short trips throughout Fort Wayne. But, if you're consistently away from home and charging ports, then the hybrid models could be the best option for you.

Advantages of Buying Alternative Fuel Vehicle in Indiana

More Efficient Driving

EVs will reduce or eliminate your trips to the gas station. That means you'll no longer be tossed to and fro by unstable gas prices. Because whether you have a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or an EV, you'll have electric power on standby to reduce gas consumption. And these EVs will also provide better gas mileage and traveling distance with a full battery/gas combination. Some alternative fuel vehicles can travel over 500 miles with a full battery/gas tank. That, in itself, is well worth the switch to alternative fuel.

EVs will help You Save Money

This is the first thing you will notice once you switch to an EV. While many gas-powered vehicles will need $100 of gas, or more, to fill their tank, an alternative fuel vehicle is only a fraction of that cost. And a full EV will exchange those expensive gas prices with much lower recharging costs. And that's if you decide to recharge your vehicle while you're out and about in Lafayette. If you charge your vehicle at home, it's even less expensive. And public charging stations are becoming more common.

Convenient Recharging

There are three separate charging levels for your EV. Level one uses a standard outlet and will give you about 2-5 miles of range per hour. A Level two charger, with professional installation at your home, can provide 10-20 miles of range per hour. Level three chargers are considered "fast chargers" and serve the same purpose as public gas stations. These level three fast chargers will give you a 60-80 mile range in about 20 minutes-and it can cost as low as $10 to completely recharge your battery. That's convenience. That's efficiency. That's an EV.
