Why Buy an Electric Vehicle?

There's been an important shift in the auto industry in recent years. More and more, drivers are choosing to take advantage of electric power. Auto makers have taken note, rolling out a ream of new vehicles with electric motors in place of gasoline engines.

This leap in popularity for electric vehicles is exciting, but not everyone is convinced. Some drivers are wary of changing from internal combustion to electric.

However, there are some advantages to driving electric that may change their minds.

Performance: Electric motors behave differently from internal combustion engines. They typically offer torque, and lots of it. The Jaguar Jaguar I-Pace is a perfect example. It offers up 512 pound-feet of torque. Plus, you don't have to wait for that power. Electric motors offer instantaneous torque, resulting in impressive acceleration. The new I-Pace can sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.

Range: Range anxiety has plagued EV shoppers for years, but no more. Modern electric vehicles are beginning to compete with their internal combustion counterparts in this variable. For example, the 90 kWh battery in the I-Pace allows for up to 234 miles of range with a full charge.

Charging: A common anxiety around electric vehicles is the time it takes to charge. Many assume it takes hours and hours to get a full charge. Modern technology, however, has allowed the process to get much faster. The Jaguar I-Pace itself can charge to 80% in just 85 minutes.

Incentives: There are many financial advantages to purchasing an electric vehicle like the new I-Pace. The government, for example, offers grants and tax incentives for electric vehicle drivers. This can offset the sticker price of your vehicle. You can also look forward to possible reduced tolls and more.

Electric vehicles are becoming more and more common in today's auto industry. However, there's one we believe stands above the rest. The new 2019 Jaguar I-Pace combines the best of crossover utility and electric performance.
