In case you haven’t noticed, electric vehicles are the future when it comes to the automobile industry. Cars are now running on electricity and the need for fuel has been steadily falling. This is why Tesla, the global leader in electric vehicle innovation, is continuing to see massive adoption.
However, there’s the belief that Tesla vehicles are only for tech bros and fast-living business types who can easily live their lives without having to worry about spouses or kids. Well, we’re here to dispel that notion. To wit, here are some significant ways that you- a family woman (or man)- can benefit from owning a Tesla.
The Money Savings Are Incredible
There is hardly any way we can speak about electric vehicles- especially Tesla vehicles- that doesn’t include the topic of cash savings. First of all, electric vehicles run on electricity, so you won’t ever have to spend a dime on fuel ever again.
Think about it; you don’t have to spend the time queuing at the gas station or enduring the horrible fuel smell of these stations. Now, that time will be spent doing something useful…perhaps with your spouse or kids. Also, the cash you save by not buying fuel can also be spent on more pressing things, like your family or Tesla accessories.
Also if you don’t want to spend all that money upfront, Tesla has you covered with it’s own lease program. Plus you don’t have to buy a brand new Tesla in order to enjoy the benefits of owning a Tesla, you an just get a used Tesla. Be sure to checkout our guide on what to look for when buying a used Tesla.
Minimal Maintenance Will Definitely Free Up Your Precious Time
Electric cars in general have very few moving parts, and this means that you won’t need to spend so much money on regular maintenance. As a matter of fact, this is one of the biggest and most significant advantages that electric cars have over the traditional, petrol-based cars.
Apart from some tire changes and maybe when you have to deal with rare and infrequent issues concerning the batteries, you don’t really need to worry about maintenance costs. With this savings in maintenance, you can easily move your kids about without having to worry about unexpected faults that will cause your car to breakdown.
You can get your kids to soccer practice on time, pick them from school, and do so many other things that need to be done with a car…all without the stress of a looming maintenance stop. Furthermore if you happen to end up in a collision (through no fault of your own of course) the Tesla has you covered with it’s collision repair service.
Charging Is Very Easy & Convenient
When you have a Tesla, all you need to ensure that it runs efficiently is a good charging location in your home or near your home. Another factor that you should consider is the level of convenience that these cars bring. Each Tesla comes equipped with it’s charging cable and you can take it with you everywhere for charging on the go.
A lot of buildings are beginning to have charging spots for electric vehicle. It’s like having a mobile petrol station with you everywhere you go; the only difference is that with a Tesla, you have a green mobile petrol station that doesn’t emit any environmentally-dangerous and toxic chemicals.
Let’s not forget about the Tesla Supercharger network that currently number 1533 Supercharger stations with 13,344 Superchargers all around the world which ensures that you are never too far away from adequate charging no matter where you are.
No More Range Anxiety
One of the concerns that you get with Teslas and other electric vehicles is the fact they have a limited range on a single charge. Of course, this is understandable; with a limited range, there is the fear that you are going to run our of charge while in the middle of a trip.
However, considering that all Teslas come with a range of at least 250 miles, that worry has been completely put to bed.
Take, for example the above 2018 edition of the Tesla Model S. This vehicle has a range of 370 miles (or 595 km). With this type of range (although you need to consider that you only get this range when the vehicles battery is fully charged; something that only take about an hour at the very least) to fully charge, you can definitely get around; get your kids to school, get to work (and if you’re lucky, your workplace has a charging spot that you can use to top off), and run a few errands throughout the day. Also when you consider most people typically drive about 30 miles a day, having a Tesla make total sense.
No More Terrible Air Or Noise Pollution
Apart from the economic and functional benefit that you get with Teslas, there is also the health and psychological advantage that a lot of people tend to ignore.
Think about it; when you get a Tesla, you no longer need to deal with terrible air or noise pollution from a combustion engine. No, literally; you don’t even get to smell a whiff of petrol and it’s good for the environment.
Imagine that! The terrible feeling you get in your gut or your chest when you smell petrol will no longer burden you! Your kids will also no longer have to experience such a terrible smell hence forth. You’ve got to love that.
Also, remember that the electric motors that come with Teslas make them completely silent while being driven. With Teslas, the only noise that you will ever get to hear is the noise that your tires emit when they make contact with the road; that smooth, easy sound that doesn’t make you or your kids want to rip your ears out.
They Pack A Punch If You Like Speed
There’s myth that electric cars can never measure up to combustion engine cars when it comes to speed i.e. you’re giving up power so as to save money. Tesla has spectacularly shattered that myth.
As a matter of fact, one of the things that draws people to Teslas is the fact that they are probably the fastest and most powerful cars on the road. Moving up hills and taking turns like a champ is just as far more thrilling in a Tesla than in any Ferrari or Lamborghini.
All of this comes with the bragging rights that you can best practically any car in a drag race and you still get to save a lot of money! If you don’t believe us, check out this video.
Teslas Won’t Make You (Or Your Kids) Feel Car Sick
Car sickness is a terrible thing to have, especially for kids and pregnant women.
Car sickness is usually caused by petrol emitting from the gas tank, combined with the incessant vibration of of the combustion engine and it is really bad especially for kids or expectant mothers. However, another major benefit that Teslas have is that since they don’t emit any petrol smells (they don’t run on petrol, remember) there will never be the potential for you or your kids to feel car sick.
This health benefit is a major advantage for anyone (or thing) that relies on breathing in oxygen for it’s survival.
Another major cause of car sickness is the jerkiness and physical effect that a car makes when you try to maneuver, climb hills, and drive through uneven terrains. Teslas are able to withstand major levels of imbalance due to their industry leading smart suspension that constantly adjusts to road conditions. Teslas are also able to learn a terrain and then adjust their suspension when next you traverse that terrain.
