shutterstock_276199487Electric vehicles are gaining in popularity every year as more people can afford them and show interest in “going green.” Are they a good option for you?  Here are some pros and cons to driving an all-electric vehicle over a vehicle with an internal combustion engine:

Pros

  • Energy efficiency
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Quiet, smooth operation
  • Reduced energy dependence

Cons

  • Limited driving range
  • Takes time to recharge (typically 4-8 hours for a full recharge)
  • Battery packs are expensive and may need to be replaced
  • Battery packs are heavy and take up considerable vehicle space

These up-and-coming electric vehicles could be the future of the automobile industry. Just like gas-powered cars, you’ll want to be sure your electric car is adequately protected in the event of an accident.  To learn more about electric vehicle coverage, contact a trusted AssuredPartners NL agent at (888) 702-0901.
