Why choose an electric vehicle?

The electric car is more ecological

One of the first reasons that can push to choose an electric vehicle is its ecological impact. From an environmental standpoint, the electric car wins hands down compared to the thermal car.  The electric car emits between 2 and 3 times less CO₂ than a thermal car if we take into account its entire life cycle. Less CO₂, fewer fine particles, less environmental impact: all of this combined would radically transform our transport system and considerably limit its negative consequences on the environment. And that is perfect for the planet.

The electric car is profitable in the long run

One can also choose the electric car for financial reasons. Indeed, the electric car is generally more economical in the long run than diesel or gasoline cars. Yes, even if electric cars are generally more expensive to buy, this is quickly offset by the price of electricity, which is much lower than the price of gasoline or diesel. We, therefore, spend more money initially, but much less later during the years of use of the vehicle.

The electric car lasts longer

And the financial advantage of the electric car is all the more valid as electric cars have a much longer lifespan than thermal cars.

The electric car is the future

If we had to summarize the reasons for choosing the electric car, we could say in a way that the electric car is the future. Greener, more profitable, more reliable, and more durable, electric cars are also destined to become more and more common.
