The Benefit of Owning a Hybrid or EV in New Jersey
As you travel down busy highways and contemplate your next new vehicle, you might want to consider a hybrid or electric model. Save money on fuel as you commute on the Garden State Parkway and reduce your carbon footprint. You can enjoy numerous benefits of owning a hybrid or EV model in New Jersey.
State Incentives to Buy a Hybrid or EV
Owners of a zero-emissions vehicle (ZEV) don’t have to pay a state sales and use tax. This only applies to all-electric vehicles, which don’t include hybrids.
Travel in the High Occupancy Vehicle lanes on the Turnpike with a plug-in electric or EV model even if you are the only one in the vehicle. Pay 10 percent less on tolls for the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. To qualify, your vehicle must have a fuel rating of no less than 45 mpg. You’ll need to register the vehicle with the New Jersey E-ZPass.
Businesses can also save money when they accommodate electric vehicles with the installation of charging systems. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection provides grants to pay for the cost of purchase and installation of chargers. Non-profits and government agencies, as well as businesses, are eligible for the grant.
Other Advantages If You Own a Hybrid/EV
Hybrid and EV vehicles offer numerous benefits for everyday driving. You can enjoy owning these models, knowing they are eco-friendly and either use no emissions or reduce the amount used.
Cost of ownership is one consideration of buying a vehicle. Since hybrid models use less gas, they can save money. Electric vehicles use no gasoline and don’t require oil changes and other maintenance services. You don’t need to have the spark plugs changed because there are none. Your main maintenance issue will be buying tires when the current set wears out.
Quieter operation is another benefit. EV models don’t have an engine to make sounds at startup or while you’re driving. These vehicles are so quiet, some have had sounds added to alert pedestrians and other drivers of their presence.
Hybrid models won’t leave you stranded even if they run out of a charge. They simply switch to gasoline to finish the rest of the journey. Modern electric models have a longer range than when the type of vehicle was first introduced. Many of them can travel for a distance of more than 200 miles. Charging stations are found all over the country, making it easy to recharge even on longer trips. Charging times are dropping as well with some fast-charging units providing an 85 percent charge in as little as 30 minutes or the equivalent of a quick stop for lunch.
