Electric Vehicle FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About Electric Vehicles

What is the Mileage Range of a Battery on a Full Charge?

It depends on which vehicle you choose, but the average mileage range of an electric vehicle is around 194 miles.

What's the Lifetime of a Battery in an Electric Vehicle?

Most vehicle manufacturers have a five to eight-year warranty on the battery. However, there isn't conclusive evidence into how long a battery can last. The current prediction for the lifespan of an electric car battery is between 10 - 20 years.

How Much Does it Cost to Install a Home Charger?

It depends on how much the electrician you hire charges. With electricians costs ranging between $40 to $100 an hour, a 240-volt  and 50-amp at-home charger outlet could cost between $300 and $800. If you install a 200-amp outlet, it could cost between $1,800 and $2,500.

What is the Average Cost of Electricity Per Month?

The estimated cost of electricity is $0.13 per kilowatt-hour. On overage, then, your at-home EV recharging bill should range between $25 to $33 per month.

How Much Does it Cost to Maintain or Service an Electric Vehicle?

Electric vehicles don't require as much maintenance since you won't need oil changes, filter replacements, and more. It's estimated that electric vehicles cost $330 less than a gasoline powered car, resulting in an annual estimate of $949.

Do All Electric Cars Use the Same Charger?

Yes. Generally, there are two charging levels you can use to charge your vehicle, and both work with all electric vehicles.

What Happens to the Battery After its Life in the Vehicle?

The battery is broken down and recycled. The process involves shredding the battery, breaking it down with heat and chemicals.

How is the Battery Recycled?

The valuable materials are extracted and the battery is broken down at dedicated facilities around the country.

How Do I Charge My Electric Vehicle?

Every electric vehicle will come with a home charging station, allowing you to plug in your vehicle at home either overnight or at shorter intervals in between your daily outings. We also have charging stations at our dealerships, allowing you to come and charge your vehicle whenever you're in the area. There's various fast charging stations around Texas that let you charge faster than your at home charger does, and you can even upgrade to a fast charger in your house.
