Advantages of Driving a Cadillac EV
While most people out there know that EV vehicles will leave a lower carbon footprint and produce zero emissions as you drive on the streets of Sherman. There are other benefits other than being environmentally conscious. For example, as we are writing this, an eclectic gallon will cost you $1.16, whereas a gallon of gas will cost you significantly more. Also, when driving electric, you will no longer need to pull into the nearest gas station when you need to fill up. All you will need to do is plug your vehicle into a home charger like a smartphone or tablet. In addition, the low maintenance costs of your electric vehicle will require far less maintenance than vehicles with combustion engines. You will also say goodbye to oil changes, belt replacements and enjoy fewer brake repairs. Finally, as the entire automotive world shifts toward EVs, investing in an electric vehicle is the best way to build equity.

Rebates in Texas for EVs
One of the best things about buying an EV in Texas is the financial incentives you can get! The state of Texas offers you a 2.500 dollar rebate for purchasing an electric car, thanks to the Texas EV Rebate Program. Meanwhile, the U.S. Federal Tax Credit is up to $7,500 for buying an electric car, and electric vehicle drivers can save between $500 and $1,500 per year in refueling costs compared to gasoline. In addition, many auto manufacturers, including Cadillac, estimate a 40% reduction in maintenance costs over the life of electric vehicles. Finally, many electric utility providers offer reduced-rate plans for nighttime, when you should charge your vehicle.
Where to Charge in Texas
There are over 2,000 charging stations in Texas, and many of these stations can charge more than one vehicle at a time. For those who drive daily, most of your charging will occur at home or throughout the day at Level 2 and DC fast charging stations which you can find along all of the major highways in Texas. Drivers can also choose from multiple networks based on the fast-charging connectors of their vehicle types at each station. The most common networks include Electrify America, Tesla, EVgo, and ChargePoint. Like any trip, be sure that you plan before you go to charge your vehicle.
