Since its debut, electric car technology is improving rapidly due to the emergence of various battery and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. But what are the benefits of purely electric cars? Here’s all you need to know about the Chevy, Buick, and GMC electric vehicles that you can find and pre-order at Sweeney Cars in Youngstown, Ohio.

What Are Electric Vehicles?

Electric cars have onboard lithium-ion batteries that can store large amounts of energy and then use it to power the wheels. These batteries are separate from the traditional car batteries that are used to start an alternator and power electrical systems. Electric cars are not hybrids in any way and have no gas tank, engine, or other parts that are required for liquid fuel combustion. They don’t even have tailpipes since they don’t have an exhaust.

The three essential components for an electric vehicle are the motor, battery, and controller. The controller changes the direct current (DC) in the battery into an alternating current (AC). Coupled with the other systems, this current change is essential to generate forward motion.

You can plug in an EV at a growing number of charging stations or simply at your home. Some automakers are testing new options, such as charging platforms that you merely park over. In their first few years, electric cars did not have nearly as much range, but now it’s normal for budget-price EVs to travel between 100 and 200 miles or more on a single charge. Although the future of transportation will change in several ways, some predictable and some not, most would agree that electric cars are built from a more sustainable starting point than fuel-burning cars.

Why You’ll Love Having an Electric Vehicle

Let’s examine a few reasons why so many folks around Youngstown are making the switch to an electric vehicle:

  • Zero emissions: Since electric vehicles have zero tailpipe emissions, they are ideal for commuters who frequently find themselves stopping and starting on congested city streets.
  • Renewable energy: Another benefit is the peace of mind and economic simplicity that comes with having a vehicle that uses far fewer or no non-renewable resources. Although large amounts of electric power are still fossil fuel-dependent, more alternatives are becoming prevalent, including solar, wind, and even water-based electric power.
  • Less maintenance: Since 100% electric vehicles don’t need engine oil, they may skip standard routine maintenance for this and other fluids. You’ll mostly only need to visit for routine checks of the battery and converter systems.
  • Quieter drive: You and your passengers can enjoy a more peaceful ride without the clamor and vibration of an engine.
  • Performance: If you’re worried about electric cars having a weak performance, you need to try a modern EV. The almost immediate torque delivery is empowering in a way that gasoline engines can’t catch up to.
  • State tax incentives: Purchasing an EV may entitle you to incentives, depending on where you live.

Which Electric Cars Have Chevrolet Released?

Chevrolet was one of the trendsetters back when electric cars and hybrids were still very new. The current electric Chevrolet vehicles that are on the market are:

  • Bolt: As the original electric Chevrolet hatchback that started the craze, the Bolt has been refreshed a few times and is now available up to the 2022 model year. The latest editions travel an astounding 259 miles on a single charge, and both trim levels accept DC fast charging.
  • Bolt EUV: The EUV is an expanded version of the Bolt that fits an additional 3 inches of legroom by being approximately 6 inches longer. In nearly all other aspects, the EUV offers the same incredible efficiency and pleasant driving experience.

Which Models Will Chevrolet Release in the Future?

Apart from the 2022 release of the Equinox EV and Blazer EV, the automaker hasn’t announced any further plans yet. The Silverado EV should release in the fall of 2023, while the Blazer is planned to arrive in the summer of that year.

Which Electric Cars Have Buick Released?

Buick does not have any electric cars for sale at present, although they do release hybrids. Moreover, the Lacrosse and Regal have had hybrid versions in the past. More Buick electric models are likely to appear in the coming years, and when they do, you’ll be able to pre-order them using our handy website.

Which Models Will Buick Release in the Future?

Some people mistakenly hear of the 2024 Buick Electra as a new model that was announced recently. Actually, the name Electra is a suffix that will appear on all Buick EV models, starting with the Wildcat EV or Wildcat Electra. Buick initially announced new electrification plans with the Wildcat EV concept and revealed a bold new take on the automaker’s exterior style.

Which Electric Cars Have GMC Released?

GMC entered the electric vehicle market recently with the Hummer EV, which is the return of the classic boxy SUV as the following two new models: an all-electric SUV and an all-electric pickup with the same frame.  A new GMC Sierra EV is expected to be revealed in late 2022.

General Motors also owns Cadillac, which has the 2023 Cadillac LYRIQ with the same Ultium architecture as that of the Hummer EV. The luxury cruiser brand’s breakout luxury car, the LYRIQ, is a sharp SUV with a modern cabin and the following two drive configurations: rear-wheel drive with a single motor and all-wheel drive with dual motors. The maximum range is 312 miles on the single-motor LYRIQ. The new Ultium battery platform allows for DC fast charging and standard home connections.

Which Models Will GMC Release in the Future?

The main vehicles to watch out for from GMC are the following two versions of the Hummer: SUV and Pickup. Both are planned for availability in early 2023. The Pickup truck model gets up to 1,000 horsepower, and both types can tow up to 11,500 pounds with the proper equipment. GMC estimates around 350 miles of range for the Pickup and around 300 miles for the SUV.

GMC intends to release several electric vehicles, including the highly anticipated Sierra EV and other upcoming models.
