Advantages of Switching to an Electric Vehicle at 401 Dixie Kia

Why Buy a Kia Electric Vehicle in Mississauga, ON

If you’re thinking about making the switch to an electric vehicle, let our team at 401 Dixie Kia outline some of the top advantages that come with driving a green vehicle. Perhaps the most important one, and most relevant to your ownership needs, is the drastic reduction in the need for maintenance that electric vehicles require. Cost savings, along with government incentives allow you to save big annually on an EV purchase. To further protect you, special Kia electric vehicle warranties are available to cover you, and your Kia’s important parts. Not to mention the dynamic model lineup of the Niro, Soul and Sorento green vehicles, there’s a long list of reasons why a Kia electric vehicle should be your next choice.

Electric Vehicle Maintenance

The Ease of EV Service

One of the biggest pains people have with vehicle ownership is the need for consistent maintenance, so you’ll be happy to know that electric vehicles require way less maintenance than traditional gas vehicles. Why is this? It all comes down to moving parts, a gas vehicle can have over 20,000 different parts, dramatically increasing the likelihood that a part may break down and just generally requiring more systems to be looked after. A fully electric vehicle, on the other hand, can have as few as just 20 parts. Less moving parts in your electric vehicle means saying goodbye to oil changes, muffler repair, tuneups and more. Regular check-ins for your electric vehicle are, of course, still necessary, but you’ll be enjoying fewer trips to our service department and with less cost. If you have any questions about service & maintenance for your EV, contact our 401 Dixie Kia service department, today.

Exclusive Kia Comprehensive Warranties

Our regular Kia warranties aren’t made to fit the needs of electric vehicles, so that’s why Kia has developed specific warranties specific to the demands of electric vehicles. If driving an EV is a new experience to you, drive with peace-of-mind knowing that you’ll be covered by a special, comprehensive warranty that generously looks out for your and your vehicles’ parts. A limited EV component warranty is available for HEV, PHEV and electric models for an 8-year/150,000 km period. A limited powertrain warranty is also offered over a 5-year/100,000 km period.

Kia Electric Vehicle Warranties:

  • 5-Year/100,000 km Comprehensive Warranty
  • 5-Year/100,000 km Limited Powertrain Warranty
  • 8-Year/150,000 km Limited EV Components Warranty
  • 5-Year/Unlimited km 24-hour Roadside Assistance

Electric Vehicle Savings & Incentives

Along with the costs you’ll save just by choosing an efficient Kia EV over a traditional gas choice (which can be well over $1,000, in some cases), there’s also a variety of incentives both at the national and provincial level that can help you save. Although there are currently no Ontario-specific incentives at the moment, provinces like British Columbia, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island do offer their own savings. On a Canada-wide level, for our local Mississauga and Ontario customers, EVs are eligible for up to $5,000 in federal incentives, while PHEVS are up to $2,500. Currently, our Kia models eligible are the Niro EV, Niro PHEV and the Soul EV.
