Benefits of Electric Cars in 2023

Not that long ago, electric cars were something that seemed far removed from most people. Maybe you knew a friend of a friend who drove a hybrid, but other than that, zero-emissions cars were something that still seemed to belong in science fiction. Fast forward to today, and electrified vehicles are everywhere! If you go into any parking lot, you have a good chance of seeing an EV charging station, and someone you know probably drives a hybrid or fully electric car.

There's no denying that with the way the tides are turning, electric cars are going to become a major force on American roads soon. Every automaker has their own version, including us here at Nissan, with the 2023 Nissan LEAF ready for the coming year. There's so many benefits that you can reap from switching to an electric car that you might not even know about! If you're giving any thought to making the change, here are some of the perks that you should be aware of.



The most obvious benefit of going electric is that you can majorly reduce your carbon footprint, but there's much more than that on the table when you make the switch. For example, EVs often end up being less expensive than gas-powered vehicles over time, partly because they save you money on fuel costs, but for other reasons as well!

EVs frequently require servicing and maintenance less often than their gas-powered counterparts. EVs also naturally take less wear and tear than gas-powered cars, so when they do have to go to the service center, they tend to require less maintenance. What they do require will likely be less intensive as well, meaning you'll end up saving on servicing.

Owning an electric vehicle can also qualify you for federal tax rebates! You could be eligible for up to $7,500, and potentially even more from your state and utility company, depending on where you live. In some places, hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles aren't eligible for these tax rebates, but fully electric vehicles like the 2023 Nissan LEAF are.

These days, just driving past the gas station and seeing the way the prices are rising and falling is a source of stress that you don't need. An electric vehicle can completely remove the chore of going to the gas station from your daily life.

If you plug in your phone before bed every night, you already have the habit you need to keep your electric vehicle fueled. A standard 120V outlet, which you probably already have in your garage, can charge your vehicle overnight with ease, and if you're interested in even faster charging, you can get a 240V outlet specially installed, although this is not required or a prerequisite of owning an EV.

In terms of public charging, these stations are popping up more and more frequently all over the country. There's probably one or two in your area that you didn't even know were there! Your NissanConnect system can even help you locate them right from your vehicle.



If you think that switching to an EV will mean you're never excited by driving again, you've got a big surprise coming. With a new electric vehicle, you can enjoy smooth and quiet driving and improved handling, the kind that you simply can't get in a gas-powered car, and you'll never feel that you're short on power. In the 2023 Nissan LEAF, for example, you'll get 214 hp with 250 lb.-ft. of torque, with an EPA-estimated range of 149 miles and 123 city MPGe.


There's nothing quite like driving an electric vehicle. If you're interested in experiencing the benefits that a Nissan EV can offer for yourself, Chapman Nissan is ready to help you!
