Used Electric Cars: remedy for the lack of electric car incentives?

Buying a used car can be a pretty difficult time, but used electric cars – in some ways – can make the choice easier.

This guide intends to provide the distinctive elements of electric cars that we believe should be known and understood in order to better evaluate the purchase of used electric cars .

The topic is very topical and important, also due to the fact that in Italy – with a few small exceptions – there are no electric car incentives available for the purchase of new vehicles. Used electric cars are therefore a good opportunity to make the purchase of these vehicles a little cheaper used cars in san diego.

Used Electric Cars: is it the right purchase for me?

Before evaluating any other aspect, it is important to understand if an electric car is suitable for your needs . At the moment, the main problems that electric car owners are experiencing are limited range and the ability to recharge their electric vehicle. If you don’t have a garage or a parking space with the possibility of installing a charging socket, the transition to a fully electric vehicle could be very difficult    Used Electric Cars for Sale in San Diego

You can’t recharge your electric car at home  and you can’t do it at work? In the event that neither of these two roads is feasible for you, you will have to rely on the public charging infrastructure, but this possibility is only realistic in large cities and in some local communities that have shown more sensitivity to electric mobility than others.

If you are sure you can have a recharging point available (for example a Wall-Box in your garage or a recharging column in the company car park ), the next aspect to consider is what type of journeys you normally take . If you frequently travel long stretches of motorway, a pure electric car may not be a suitable choice (due to higher consumption compared to urban journeys and the scarcity of fast charging infrastructure on the Italian motorway network). If most of your trips take place in the city or on routes that do not exceed an average of 150 kilometers per day, then an electric car is the ideal choice .

Obviously there are exceptions to consider: some electric vehicles have autonomy (and costs) much higher than the average of the models available on the market; you could also consider buying a plug-in hybrid electric car , in case you often travel on routes that exceed the range of an average electric car.
