VW Celebrates 20 Years of the Golf R  

Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular due to their many benefits. In addition to being better for the environment, EVs offer significant savings over traditional gas-powered cars in terms of upfront and long-term costs.

According to Consumer Reports, the average EV costs less to own than a traditional gas-powered car. It is due to the much lower cost of electricity relative to gasoline. Also, because EVs require less maintenance than gas cars helps the price point. In addition, federal and state tax credits can further reduce the upfront cost of an EV.

Fuel Savings

Over the long term, EVs offer substantial savings in fuel costs. According to Consumer Reports, the average EV costs less per year to operate than the average gas-powered car. EV owners can save about $800 to $1,000 per year on fuel costs.

Maintenance Savings

EVs also require less maintenance than gas cars. It is because EVs have far fewer moving parts than gas cars, and thus there are fewer parts that can break down or require regular maintenance. As a result, EV owners can save about $4,600 on maintenance costs.


Another factor contributing to the lower cost of EVs is depreciation. Consumer Reports found that EVs depreciate slower than gas cars. It means that they retain more of their value over time. It results in annual savings on depreciation costs.
