Kia Electric Vehicles Charging

Are you thinking about upgrading to an all-electric vehicle from Kia Atlanta South soon? EVs are increasingly popular among local drivers, and there are plenty of good reasons for this. For example, they are better for the environment and can save drivers money over the long run. Do you have questions about EVs that our team can clear up for you? Check out these frequently asked questions to get more information about the EV ownership experience.

How much money can you save with an EV?

The fuel used for combustion engine vehicles is expensive, and the cost fluctuates significantly at times. When you upgrade to an electric Kia model, you likely will charge your vehicle most of the time at home. Charging an electric vehicle is generally significantly lower than the cost needed to fuel an average gas-powered vehicle. Plus, electricity rates are relatively steady. This makes it easier for you to manage your budget.

Are there financial incentives for purchasing an EV?

The federal government is currently offering a tax credit of up to $7,500, which you can claim when you file your next tax return. In addition, other incentives may be offered in your state or local area.

How do you charge your Kia EV?

You will likely charge your Kia EV at home most of the time. The standard wall outlet that produces 120 volts can be used, and this is called a Level 1 charger. A Level 2 charger, which supplies 240 volts, may be installed in your home as a fast-charging alternative. Some of the public charging stations also offer Level 2 charging. A Level 3 charger may also be available at public charging stations. This is a 480-volt DC fast charger that dramatically reduces charging times.

How do you find a public charging station?

Your Kia comes with access to the UVO link app. You can use this app to identify charging stations close to you through your smartphone easily. PlugShare is another popular app that some drivers prefer to use.
