Choosing the Right Electric Vehicle

How do you know which electric vehicle is right for you? All-electric vehicles offer a great driving experience while producing zero tailpipe emissions. With the lack of traditional combustion engine, you may save on routine maintenance costs, such as oil changes and fluid replacements. Plug-in hybrid models offer pure-electric driving range to supplement your gasoline-powered engine. Hybrid models use an electric motor to assist the performance of your combustion engine. The prices and availability differ between each model. Contact the experts at Basil Toyota to determine which model best suits your needs.

Understanding Charging

Charging times vary depending of the type of charger used.

Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.

Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible.

Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.

Charging from Home

For plugin hybrid vehicles a standard outlet (Level 1) will be enough for overnight charging. For battery electric vehicles, a Level 2 charger will require professional installation by a licensed electrician. If you live in an apartment or condo, consider talking with the property owner about installing a charger or use a nearby public charger. Talk to our sales staff to find out more about charging from home.

Battery Care

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number will continue to increase. If you can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged most days and avoid extremely hot temperatures, you can expect your maintenance to be minimal.
