What are the benefits of driving a Volvo EV?

Skip the Gas Pump

EVs run on electric power, so when you upgrade to a Volvo pure electric model, you can say goodbye to the gas pump. You’ll avoid the constant ups and downs of fuel prices, and you’ll likely save money in the long run. For most Americans, it’s less expensive to recharge an electric car than it is to fill up a gasoline-powered one, according to Consumer Reports. This is especially true here in Oregon, where gas prices are often higher than average.

Long-Term Savings

In addition to the money you’ll save on gas, you’ll also save on maintenance. Since an electric vehicle doesn’t need a traditional engine to run, you won’t have to schedule engine tune-ups, oil changes, transmission flushes or other services specific to gas-powered models. This can add up to measurable savings in the long run.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

If you’re looking for a way to minimize your impact on the planet, driving an EV is a great one. With little to no tailpipe emissions to worry about, all-electric models go easy on the earth, providing you with transportation (and fun) without all of the harmful pollutants.

  • Is an electric vehicle more expensive than a gas-powered vehicle?
    While some electric vehicles do cost more than their gas-powered counterparts, EV prices have been falling as electric vehicles have become more accessible. More importantly, it’s vital to consider the long-term costs of ownership, rather than the MSRP alone, when deciding whether to upgrade to an EV. Remember that you’ll spend less without having to rely on gasoline, and maintenance will be far less expensive than it would be for a gas-powered model.
  • What is regenerative braking?
    Regenerative braking ensures that energy doesn’t go to waste as you drive your EV. When you apply the brakes, your vehicle’s system will capture the energy created by braking and channel it back to the battery to keep it charged.
  • How and where do I charge my car?
    It’s easy and convenient to keep your car charged. You can have a qualified electrician install a wallbox EV charger in your garage, and you can also stop at public or commercial charging stations when you’re on the go. There are over 30,000 public stations available on the ChargePoint network, so you won’t have to worry about running out of charge.
  • How long does it take to charge my car’s battery?
    Charging times differ depending on many factors, including the temperature outside, the battery’s temperature, the charging equipment you use, your battery’s health and the overall condition of your car. Check the technical specifications for your specific vehicle to find its estimated charging times.
  • What’s the warranty on my new 2024 Volvo all-electric vehicle?
    Your new 2024 Volvo pure electric vehicle will come with a New Car Limited Warranty that lasts up to four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first; complimentary Factory Scheduled Maintenance and Wear Coverage for the first four years or 40,000 miles, whichever comes first* and a Limited Drive Battery Warranty that lasts for eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
