What Are Electric Cars and What Are Its Benefits?

EVs are what you might think about when the topic of alternative-fuel cars comes up. Electric cars run solely on an electric battery that runs for more than 200 miles on a full charge.

Check them out below:

  • Zero CO2 emissions
  • A more quiet ride
  • You’ll no longer have to pay for gas
  • No Engine maintenance
  • You can charge it at home
  • And more!

When comparing hybrid vs. electric cars, you’ll immediately notice that hybrid vehicles can be run on a gas-powered engine. This is a surprise to many Round Rock drivers. With a hybrid car, you can switch back and forth between the eclectic battery and the gas-powered engine.
