“The person saves up to $8,000 by having an electric car for five years or more. It’s a huge saving,” said Nadia Torres, spokeswoman for Consumer’s Report.

But, in addition to the economy, it is the benefit to the environment that has motivated the government to offer other incentives to those who buy these cars.

“Tax credits. rebates and rebates that can help you save money when buying a hybrid vehicle,” Stewart said.

An electric car requires less maintenance because it doesn’t need oil changes or air filters. However, it must be taken into account that it can be expensive to replace the battery of this type of vehicle.

But, according to experts, this battery has a minimum lifespan of 10 years.
