Benefits of Choosing Electrified Vehicles in Palo Alto, CA

Revamping their lineup with a selection of innovative plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, Volvo is creating a path to a future that looks much more sustainable. And we're thrilled to play a part here at Volvo Palo Alto. Many of our guests from San Jose, Redwood City and Fremont are curious if an electrified vehicle is the correct choice for them, since many brands these days are taking advantage of new technology and designing their own version of all-electric, plug-in hybrid or hybrid vehicles. You may have even considered whether an electrified new or used model from our inventory would improve your daily commute’s gas mileage. If that's you, keep scrolling to explore the benefits of picking a greener vehicle.

Benefits of Choosing Electrified

Eco-friendly

It might be obvious, but being kinder to the earth is a great first reason to go electric. We all leave our mark on the environment, but when you pick a hybrid or all-electric model instead of a gas-powered one, that impact will be less. Many electrified vehicles are boasting noticeable MPGe estimates of over 40-50 — the 2021 Volvo XC90 Plug-in Hybrid, for example, produces 55 MPGe. There are many all-electric vehicles that produce zero emissions, and there’s a possibility that your vehicle could drive without using any fuel.

Wallet-pleaser

For those who love to focus on the bottom line, wouldn't you love spending less over time? An electrified vehicle, whether it has a gas engine or not, will need less stops at the pump to fill up the gas tank. The modern and very efficient electric motor and battery of your vehicle will save you time and money in regards to your car’s fuel consumption. All-electric models, too, won’t need the same engine maintenance as their gas-powered counterparts. So, if you drive an all-electric vehicle, you can say goodbye to engine belt replacements, oil changes, transmission fluid flushes and more!

Tax Incentives

But that's not all. It's true that certain long-term costs usually are less with an electrified vehicle, but were you aware that many all-electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid vehicles qualify for federal and state tax incentives? Your upfront cost could be dramatically lowered as well. The U.S. Department of Energy has incentivized consumers to make qualifying purchases of green vehicles with rebates and credits.

Warranty

It's usually the case that the warranty for the hybrid or all-electric vehicles is just as good if not better than other gas-powered vehicles, which means that you’ll love the protective coverage of your model for a long time after purchase. For example, the powertrain new vehicle limited warranty for the Volvo XC90 Recharge is 4 years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. You don't have to stress about a potential manufacturer defect — find out more about your model’s warranty from your owner’s manual.

There are many reasons why you should consider a hybrid vehicle when you’re ready to start shopping.
