Fuel and maintenance is the second largest expense for fleet managers. Purchasing an electric vehicle like the Chevrolet Volt or Chevrolet Bolt EV will cut the maintenance cost by half.  This is due to electricity being significantly cheaper than gasoline on a per kilometer basis. Most importantly, it is significant to note that electric vehicles do not need regular maintenance items such as oil changes and transmission fluid changes. The Chevrolet Bolt EV and Chevrolet Volt are guaranteed to give you the maximum fuel efficiency benefits.

Depreciation Costs

The depreciation cost of internal combustion engine vehicles is considerably higher than electric vehicles. You are estimated to save between $600-800 per year on depreciation cost.

Overall Verdict

Overall, if you’re looking to purchase a cost-efficient vehicle an electric vehicle is the smartest decision for fuel cost, maintenance cost, depreciation value, and guarantees more federal tax credit opposed to an internal combustion engine (ICE). Additionally to these savings, the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Chevrolet VOLT can help you reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) and assist in achieving climate targets.
