With the new year, a lot of people tend to make New Year’s resolutions. Guess what usually makes it to the top of the list. It’s money. Money, money, money, we all want to save and make more money! The gold rush is gone and is never coming back, so no one is going to strike it rich overnight any day soon. There are ways we can start saving money in 2018 though. Have some food for thought – it’s on us.
Alternative Fuel Vehicles
If in the market to buy or lease a new car, Miami Lakes Automall has a great selection of vehicles, including alternative fuel vehicles like the Chevrolet Bolt EV, the Kia Niro, the Kia Optima Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV), the Chevy Volt, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, and many more. Our section of alternative fuel vehicles range from $20-$45,000, and they all come with some awesome opportunities for savings. Let’s do some math.
Chevy Bolt EV was introduced in 2017 and it is an award-winning electric vehicle that has a total driving distance of 238 miles on a fully charged battery. According to fueleconomy.gov, the average driver driving the Chevy Bolt EV spends about $550 in energy costs every year, and in comparison to the average new vehicle, the average driver saves about $4,250 in fuel costs every five years. Additionally, the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV is eligible for the full federal tax credit of $7,500. With a tax credit, if a consumer purchases the Bolt EV in 2018, then come tax season for the 2018 tax year, the consumer does not have to pay up to $7,500 in taxes that are owed to the federal government. Also, since the Chevy Bolt EV is a fully electric vehicle, the vehicle has no exhaust and emits zero tailpipe emissions, which is also great!
