Benefits of Electric Vehicles

Many people have the wrong idea about electric vehicles; they think that saving money on gas sounds great, but that they’re surely sacrificing something, right? At Pohanka, we want to show you how there are far more benefits to driving an electric vehicle than you might suspect. When you’re ready to try one out, come to Pohanka and let our staff show you around our lot. Alternatively, take a moment to find our list of electric and hybrid vehicles under the Search New tab above. If you have any questions while you do this, let us know via the contact form below.

 

Convenience and Savings

First, let’s get the obvious out of the way: electric vehicles prevent you from wasting money on gas, and they also have the reliable powertrains that you need to commute and run errands confidently. A common fear that anyone new to electric vehicles might have is that they might get stranded on a dead battery and not be able to find a charging station nearby. All around Virginia and Maryland, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. There are dozens of charging stations in the area, and you’ll always be able to find one and get back on the road with a full charge. Once you realize how convenient this is, you’ll be shocked that more people don’t make the transition quickly and bypass using gasoline altogether.

 

Exemptions

If you’re driving an electric vehicle in Virginia, you’ll have benefits that extend beyond savings. You’ll be eligible for the High Occupancy Vehicle Lane Exemption*. As long as you display the Virginia Clean Special Fuel license plate, you’ll be able to use the Virginia HOV lanes regardless of how many people you have on board. Also, you probably know by now that if you live in Virginia and have a gasoline-powered vehicle, you have to bring it in for emissions testing every two years. However, if you have an electric vehicle, you’ll be eligible for Hybrid Electric Vehicle Emission Testing Exemption*, since you won’t be producing emissions in the first place! With all of these benefits in mind, take a look at the electric vehicles that we have in stock. If you’ve found one that you like, apply for financing on our website so that you’ll have a loan waiting for you before you even arrive at the dealership.

Do the benefits of electric vehicles have you excited? They thrill us at Pohanka, and our staff can’t wait to tell you more about them. Come visit us when you get the chance!

I was assisted by Mr. Mina Azez. He was very helpful, courteous and professional. I was/am very impressed with his willingness to assist me in getting my Lexus serviced. He is a "definite asset" to Pohanka Lexus. I would highly recommend him to others. Mina, I know I thanked you last night when I picked up my car, but I wanted to say it once more ...Thanks again. Happy 4th of July!!!

Highly recommend Pohanka Chevrolet and Anuj! We had a great experience, which everyone knows is not usually what’s expected when you go to purchase a vehicle. Anuj was immediately responsive and in contact with us and met us when we pulled in (mask on and all give Covid). He had the car we were interested in ready to go and was great at going over all the features before our test drive. He entertained our indecisiveness regarding color and even brought out another car for us to see the interior. When it came time to start the paperwork it was the smoothest transaction we have ever made! And we’ve bought plenty of vehicles in our lifetimes. Anuj made sure to get us every discount we could qualify for and Chevy was offering a great incentive. We agreed upon the price on the first go- shocking I know! The entire process was great, go see Anuj!

Had a flat tire on my new Equinox. Called the service department at 7:00 pm. They made sure they had the matching tire available and invited me in that night! Sam was my service rep and she was simply fantastic!

I found a used Highlander online at Pohanka Chevrolet that appeared too good to be true and decided to make the 3 drive to see it. Elijah was our honest and knowledgeable salesman that facilitated the whole process. Financing was simple and straight forward thanks to Hunter. I would recommend this dealership for every aspect of the car buying experience. I got a beautiful vehicle for a more than fair price. Well worth the drive!

Had to get my transmission replaced and thought it was going to be a tough ordeal to go through. I was wrong. The service consultant, Art, was a huge help. Great communication through every step of the process and followed through on every promise. I've had a rough time dealing with car shops but these guys did a phenomenal job. Got my car back in great time as well. While I always try to do my own work I would definitely feel comfortable taking my car back for any major work.

My brother has been using Pohanka Chevy service for years and has convinced me to do the same for my Chevy under warranty as well as my other older owned GM vehicles. I live in Bethesda so it is a bit of a drive but their service hours, service staff and weekend times make it worth it.
