Why Should Hawaiians Buy Electric Cars?

Drivers are starting to realize the benefits of going electric. There has been a recent increase in demand for electric cars.  Here’s a few reasons why you should consider purchasing an electric car if you are living in Hawaii.

Electric cars are usually more expensive then vehicles that run on gas. The rate for one of the more popular electric models, the Nissan Leaf runs for about $30,000.  There are more affordable options, even for a new vehicle that runs on gas. Although the initial higher costs will be offset by savings in fuel cost. You will save a significant amount when you buy an electric car. Especially in Hawaii where the gas prices are much higher. Hawaii is among one of the top 5 states with the highest gas prices. Studies on electric cars have been done at the University of Michigan’s Transportation research institute. These studies have proven that the owner of an electric vehicle will save about a third more than the conventional driver that runs on gas.  Electric cars are also more affordable to maintain. They also require much less maintenance. Electric cars do not require oil changes, cooling system flushes or transmission servicing. Public charging stations are also becoming more prevalent. Skeptics are realizing it’s becoming more convenient to own an electric car. These vehicles are not only more affordable, but they are also obviously better for the environment. They use renewable energy sources and cause less pollution. Electric cars have become a key component in Hawaii’s pursuit of 100 percent clean energy by the year 2045.

In the end, it’s up to you, would you choose electric?
