Owning a fully-electric Mercedes-EQ vehicle not only helps you protect the environment but can also save you thousands of dollars per year. Mercedes-Benz of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is excited to highlight the cost-saving benefits of owning an electric vehicle (EV).

The price of gas is seemingly always on the rise, making it more expensive than ever to own a gasoline-powered vehicle. Because of how much more efficient electric engines are compared to internal combustion engines, the cost of owning an EV is significantly lower than its gasoline counterpart.

Fuel Savings

The cost to recharge your Mercedes-EQ vehicle varies depending on where, when, and how you are recharging, but is always cheaper than buying gasoline. Charging during non-peak hours from home is usually your most cost-effective method to restore your range. Again, because electric engines are so efficient, they get a better MPGe (Miles Per Gallon Equivalent) running on electricity than their gasoline counterparts get.

Maintenence Savings

Electric Engines have fewer moving parts than an internal combustion engine does. This means that there is less wear and tear on electric vehicles, creating a lower cost of maintenance. Electric engines do not need to receive some of the routine maintenance that gasoline vehicles do such as oil changes, filter replacements, and spark plug replacements. Mercedes-EQ models also have a warranty that covers your vehicle for 10 years or 150,000 miles!

Federal Tax Credits

Your fully-electric Mercedes-EQ model also qualifies you for a $7,500 tax credit. For more information on the tax credit speak to your trusted accountant.
