Understanding EVs

If you're on board with protecting the environment and avoiding the gas pump, Chevrolet has electric cars, trucks, and SUVs that release zero emissions. Electric vehicles (EVs) don't use gas at all, while still providing quick acceleration and a host of handy amenities. Jim Stykemain Chevrolet Buick GMC has a diverse selection of electric vehicles for sale or lease in Coldwater, MI, and we're happy to explain how they work and tell you what they offer.

Which EV is Right for My Needs?


All current electrified Chevy models are Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), which combine a battery pack and electric motors. These all-electric cars don't require any fuel or leave any emissions trace. They also have fast recharging times at your home in Sturgis, MI, or at public charging stations.


Traditional Hybrid Electric Vehicles paved the way for today's EVs. With regenerative braking and hybrid powertrains, Hybrids earn higher fuel economy ratings compared to generic vehicles. Tax credits and benefits may not apply.

The Many Benefits of Electric Chevrolet Vehicles


A federal tax rebate up to $7,500 is available on many EV models.


Even more possible savings from your state and/or utility company.


EV owners can expect to spend half as much on maintenance and repair (Consumer Reports).


Charge while you sleep, or at a growing number of public chargers.


Enjoy fast and smooth acceleration, better handling, and a quieter ride.


Plug-in hybrids provide electric range for short trips and gas-power for longer journeys.

Choose Your Charging Method

You can charge a Chevrolet EV at home with a 120-volt household-style power outlet or a 240-volt charger. LaGrange, IN drivers can also charge a Chevy EV at one of the nearly 50,000 public EV charging stations in the U.S. The following are charging times for these three methods:

  • Level 1 120-volt outlet: Roughly four miles of charge per hour.
  • Level 2 240-volt outlet: Can fully recharge a Chevy EV in around seven hours.
  • Level 3 DC fast charger: Can add up to 80 miles of range every 20 minutes, and boost the battery to 100 miles of range in around 30 minutes. A DC fast charger can completely recharge your Chevy EV in just over an hour.

An available dual-level home charger lets you quickly switch between Level 1 and Level 2 charging. Chevrolet will cover standard installation of a Level 2 charging outlet for Coldwater, MI drivers who purchase or lease a new Chevy EV. See us for details.

The Benefits of Plugging In with a Chevy EV

The most obvious advantage of an EV is that it does not burn gas or release any harmful emissions, so it won't contribute to climate change. Not having to purchase gasoline is like putting money back into your pocket. Since electric vehicles don't have a gas engine, Angola, IN drivers will spend less time and money on things like oil changes, radiator service, and muffler repairs.

When you buy or lease an electric car, you may be able to receive state or federal income tax credits. People in Three Rivers, MI can get a $500 state tax rebate for the purchase or lease of a new EV. You may also qualify for a federal income tax credit of up to $7,500.
