Have you ever bought a new car? Why do they make it so complicated? I get it, it’s a large purchase, like buying a house or college tuition. For gas cars, the process has been repeated so many times that, generally, you can be confident that you’re in pretty good hands (just don’t forget your negotiating hat).
But what about electric vehicles (EVs)? The internet is awash with theories that explain why dealerships have no incentive to sell EVs. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I can certainly sympathize with anyone trying to buy an EV for the first time (or second and third time for that matter).
Which model is right for me? Will I get the full $7,500 federal tax credit? Does a Tesla really drive itself? How do I charge it and who pays for that? These are just a few questions that swim around the mind of any new EV buyer and often hamstring them from making the purchase.
EV Life Customizes Your Electric Vehicle Buying Experience
Fortunately, an ingenious new website called EV Life is here to help you navigate the entire process. Simply enter your zip code, electric utility provider, and a few other household details so they can generate a custom report for you in seconds. Your free “EV Savings Report” will include federal, state, and utility rebates and credits, details about maintenance and fueling costs, and more. This can save you hours of research and headaches.
Co-founder of EV Life, Peter Glenn, says, “We started EV Life because we know that switching from a gas to an electric car is complex, and customers were asking us for more coaching to find the best electric car for their lives. We’re thrilled to offer free online concierge support as well as more comprehensive paid support.”
Don’t know what it means to have a 42 kWh battery? Wondering where you can take a test drive? Didn’t know you were eligible for significant rebates in California if your car is older than 2004?
EV Life can help you answer all these questions and more with their EV Concierge service. You’ll find the right car at the right price with the right amount of auto-pilot without all the confusion and hassle. Their online concierge option is free, but you can also choose from their White Glove or Silver Platter options starting at $499 with services to find and negotiate the best price and even provide contactless home delivery.
To help customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, Peter Glenn says, “We offer impartial concierge services that save you countless hours of research and negotiation with dealers. To keep you safe, we also source home-based deliveries and test drives with social distancing.”
