Your Electric Car Questions Answered

What are the differences between electric vs. gas cars?

One of the main differences between EVs and conventional cars is the powertrain. EVs use electric motors powered by electricity stored in a battery, which can be recharged from an external source. Unlike gasoline-powered cars, EVs produce no tailpipe emissions, which significantly reduces their environmental impact. Electric cars are also more affordable to drive thanks to the lower costs of electricity vs. gasoline.

What is the average range of an electric vehicle?

An EV’s range can vary significantly based on several factors, not the least of which is the make and model of the vehicle. Here on our lot, we offer new EVs like the Chevy Bolt EUV, which can return nearly 250 miles to a charge, while our Ford electric trucks and SUVs offer range options as high as 300 miles or so. As upcoming Ford and Chevy electric vehicles continue to come to market and arrive on our lot, you’ll likely see these figures improve even more.

Can I charge an electric vehicle at home?

Yes. Most electric vehicles can be charged using a standard household outlet, but for quicker charging, we suggest investing in a Level 2 charger. Typically, these dedicated 240V chargers can fully replenish a drained EV battery overnight — imagine starting each day with a full tank of gas, and you’ll understand why so many owners install home EV chargers if they can.

Are electric vehicles expensive to maintain?

No! Electric vehicles typically have lower maintenance costs when compared to conventional cars as there are fewer moving parts that can fail or wear out. Also, since EVs don’t require internal lubrication, you can say goodbye to oil changes for good — something many Nebraska electric car owners are thrilled about. Regular EV maintenance usually involves little more than tire rotations, brake tests and battery checks.
