Why you should Buy an Electric Car in Burford Ontario

Why you should Buy an Electric Car in Burford Ontario

The EV market in Canada is growing by leaps and bounds. If you are thinking about making the switch, there has never been a better time to buy an electric car in Burford as our car loans team explains.


Gas prices throughout Canada are over $2 per litre and will eventually break $3 by the end of 2022.


With rising gas prices and inflation at all-time highs, everyone seriously needs to take a hard look at getting behind the wheel of an EV.


Qualities to look for in an EV


Since the EV market is relatively new when compared to the internal combustion engine segment that has been around for well over a century.


With gas-powered vehicles, you would look at litres per 100KMs (miles per hour for our friends in the US); the horsepower and size of the engine all played a role in selecting the right vehicle for your needs.


With EVs, you need to look at the range, size of the battery, and manufacturer of the EV.


There are new EV companies trying to gain market share in the automobile industry in Canada and around the world.


This situation is very similar to when the first gas-powered cars were being introduced in North America, there were hundreds of companies, but only a few were able to stand the proverbial test of time.


When you are trying to find the right EV for your family, look at the company that is manufacturing the vehicle, you want to select a carmaker that has been around for a long time and has a track record of success.


We are not reinventing the wheel; by identifying the carmakers that have a great track record of consistency, you can review their lineup of EVs.


The reason you should implement this approach is the cars are essentially the same, and the powerplant for the vehicle is the only thing that has really changed. Instead of drawing power from an internal combustion engine, the car is powered by batteries.


Benefits of having an EV


There are some immediate benefits of driving an EV that you can only truly appreciate by going for a test drive at your local dealership.

  • With incredible amounts of torque, electric motors have a distinct advantage over gas-powered vehicles when it comes to torque. With gas-powered, you need to rev the engine in order to get things moving. With an EV, once you hit the accelerator, you are pushed back in your seat.
  • There are very few points of failure with an EV; when you drive a gas-powered car, there are a plethora of ways that the engine could stop working, leaving you stranded on the side of the road. With an EV, the only main reason the vehicle would not work is if the battery had no power in it.


Financing the purchase of your EV in Burford


Even if you have credit challenges, you should head over to your local car dealership and start looking at the range of financing options that are available when you buy an electric car in Burford.


The dealership employs credit experts that will show you how to repair your credit.


While EVs are slightly more expensive than a gas-powered car, you will save a massive amount of cash on energy, especially with rising gas prices. So, head over to your local dealership today for a test drive.
