2020 Kia Niro Touring


Electric vehicles have been generating a lot of buzz around Corona and beyond, and it’s not hard so see why their popularity continues to grow. Why should you buy an electric car? There are so many benefits of electric cars ranging from a lower carbon footprint to their advanced tech features. If you have been thinking about making the switch to an electric car in the Fontana area, the team at Riverside Kia has created this guide to the perks of EV ownership. If the benefits have piqued your interest, you can then explore the Kia electric cars we offer. 

Why Buy an EV? 

So, what sets electric vehicles apart from their gasoline counterparts? Below, we have listed some of our favorite benefits of electric cars that make them such a smart investment for San Bernardino drivers. 

  • Lower Cost of Ownership: Electric vehicles are generally cheaper to maintain than gasoline-powered vehicles. 
  • State-of-the-Art Technology: Many electric cars now feature information displays with systems that monitor energy usage, but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to advanced tech features.
  • Less Environmental Impact: Not only do EVs produce little to no tailpipe emissions, they can also be charged using renewable energy sources. 
  • Maintenance Required for EV Ownership: Oil changes, transmission flushes, and more are a thing of the past. EVs require much less maintenance than gasoline-powered models.

Preparing for EV Ownership

Get Your Garage Ready 

Another perk of driving an EV in Riverside is that you can charge your vehicle right at home. If you plan on installing a charging station in your garage, you will need to figure out what kind of charging station (i.e., Level 1 or Level 2) you will be eligible for. Then, you can have the charging station professionally installed before your EV arrives. 

Search for Local Charging Stations

Public charging stations allow you to charge your vehicle at lightning-fast speeds when you are out and about around Corona and Fontana. 

Look into Possible Tax Credits

You may be eligible for a tax credit on your next EV purchase. This should help to cover the slightly higher price of an EV. Keep in mind that dealerships like Riverside Kia also offer plenty of new vehicle specials for added savings.
