There’s an increasing emphasis on the importance of reducing our carbon footprint, and this is reflected in the current focus on efficient energy use. The automotive industry has responded to this by developing electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids that serve as more environmentally friendly and sustainable alternatives to the traditional gas-powered models. While interest in these vehicles is on the rise, many consumers are still unsure about purchasing them because of their relatively higher cost. That’s where we at Jim Burke Ford come in.
We recognize the growing demand for eco-friendly transportation, and we’re proud to offer a thoughtful selection of used EVs and hybrid vehicles. With our extensive inventory, buyers can make an eco-conscious choice without compromising on style, performance, or affordability. For seasoned EV enthusiasts or those considering their very first EV or hybrid vehicle, Jim Burke Ford is here to help them find a well-maintained used EV or hybrid that meets their needs. This article delves into the key benefits of buying a used hybrid vehicle or EV so buyers can make an informed decision about their next car purchase.
Why Buyers Should Buy a Used Vehicle
A vehicle purchase is a major investment that requires careful consideration. While there are merits to purchasing a new unit, such as getting the latest technology and features, there are instances when a used vehicle is the more sensible option. For instance, if someone has a tighter budget, they may find it practical to buy a used car instead of a new one. It may also be a smarter choice if they’re looking for a secondary vehicle. Here are some of the reasons for buying a used unit:
- Cost savings: Used cars typically come with a lower price tag compared to their brand-new counterparts. Buyers can often find a vehicle in good condition that suits their needs at a significantly reduced price.
- Depreciation: New cars lose value rapidly in their first few years, with the steepest depreciation occurring in the first year. By buying used, buyers can avoid the significant initial depreciation and preserve their vehicle’s value.
- Lower insurance costs: Insurance premiums for used cars are generally lower than for new ones, which can save people money on monthly expenses.
- Proven reliability: With numerous online resources and reviews, buyers can research the reliability and longevity of specific used models, giving them confidence in their purchase.
- Variety and availability: The used car market offers a vast selection of makes, models, and features, allowing buyers to find a vehicle that perfectly matches their preferences and budget.
- Avoiding new car fees: Buying used means buyers can skip the various fees associated with new cars, such as destination charges and initial registration costs.
Why People Should Drive an EV/Hybrid Vehicle
Driving an EV or a hybrid vehicle offers a range of benefits that extend beyond personal convenience. Whether sustainability, long-term cost savings, or a desire for cutting-edge technology is the motivation, here are some key reasons why buyers should consider driving an EV or hybrid vehicle:
- Environmental impact: EVs produce no tailpipe emissions, reducing air pollution and combating climate change. Hybrids and EVs typically have lower lifetime carbon emissions compared to conventional vehicles.
- Government incentives: Many governments offer incentives, such as tax credits and rebates, to promote the adoption of these eco-friendly vehicles.
- Energy efficiency: EVs are highly efficient in converting electricity into motion, making the most of their energy source. Improvements in battery technology have increased their range and energy storage capacity.
- Reduced noise pollution: EVs and hybrid vehicles are typically quieter than traditional vehicles, reducing noise pollution in urban environments.
- Technological advancements: EVs often come equipped with advanced technology, including autonomous driving capabilities and connectivity. Manufacturers can deliver software updates remotely, enhancing vehicle performance and features.
- Ethical and social considerations: Driving an EV or hybrid vehicle contributes to a cleaner, more sustainable future. By choosing eco-friendly transportation, drivers set an example for others and promote responsible driving habits.
Purchasing a used EV or hybrid vehicle comes with its own set of benefits and challenges. While it’s certainly more affordable than a new unit, buyers can only get their money’s worth if they take the time to research the vehicle and ensure that it’s in good condition before finalizing their purchase. While we stand by the quality of our used EVs and hybrid vehicles, buyers can schedule a service appointment with us to have one of our expert technicians inspect the unit they’re interested in to give them peace of mind.
The Tax Benefits of Owning an EV
In California, owning an EV comes with significant tax benefits, making them an attractive choice for environmentally conscious consumers. Here are some of the ways that buyers can save money by choosing a used EV:
- State rebates: California offers rebates of up to $2,500 for eligible battery EVs and $1,500 for plug-in hybrid EVs to help offset the purchase cost.
- Federal tax credit: When purchasing an EV, the buyer may qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500, reducing their overall tax liability.
- Reduced registration fees: California offers lower registration fees for EVs and hybrid vehicles, putting extra money back in buyers’ pockets.
If our customers have any questions about the benefits mentioned above, contact us at Jim Burke Ford in Bakersfield, California, and we’ll be more than happy to provide any additional details. Our finance department can also help buyers find the right loan and determine which financial incentives are applicable to them, so they can save even more money on their purchase.
