Everyone’s situation will vary, but from charging to maintenance costs, the savings can add up.

If you like saving money (and who doesn’t?), you can find plenty of opportunities to reduce your vehicle expenses over the long run when you buy an electric vehicle. Here are two of the most substantial ones:

1. Savings on electricity over gas

Say goodbye to gas pumps. You’ll be charging your vehicle from the electrical grid, which is another opportunity to save.

2. Lower scheduled maintenance costs

Let’s take a look at how owning an electric vehicle can help you save in some major ways.

They can be cheaper to run. Do you know why? Powering a vehicle with electricity offers you an alternative to other fuel sources, which can be an opportunity for savings.

For example, The 2023 ID.4 comes standard with Scheduled Carefree Maintenance, which includes manufacturer-recommended service for two years or 20,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For maximum peace of mind, you’ll want to follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule.


The future of electric is here.
