Pros and Cons of Electric Vans
An electric van may be a great fit for your needs…and it may not. Consider the following electric van pros and cons guide to help you determine whether this vehicle is a good fit for your unique needs.
PRO: ELECTRIC VANS REQUIRE LESS MAINTENANCE
The unique design of an electric van’s internal systems leads to less upkeep. Some standard vehicle maintenance tasks, such as oil changes, will not be relevant. Other standard vehicle maintenance tasks, such as brakes maintenance, won’t be needed as frequently.
This saves owners a significant amount of time and money.
CON: AVAILABILITY OF CHARGING STATIONS
Gas stations are pretty widespread throughout the country. But charging stations…not so much. The further away from a big city that you live, the harder it can be to find an easily accessible charging station.
PRO: THE POTENTIAL FOR TAX CREDITS
Electric vans can be eligible for federal and state tax credits. This can help reduce the asking price of the electric van and help stretch your budget farther.
CON: THE HIGHER ASKING PRICE
Electric vans tend to have higher sticker prices compared to gas vehicles. This can be tough for smaller businesses that have a much more restricted budget.
PRO: MORE STABLE FUEL COSTS
The price of gas can change quite dramatically throughout the year and price hikes can hit transportation business hard. The price for electricity, on the other hand, is usually much more consistent. This makes budgeting much easier and helps reduce the chances of having times with drastically higher expenses.
