DETROIT — EV Live, General Motors’ new electric vehicle-focused website, lets customers calculate savings through an online calculator.
On the “ownership” of the page, GM says that customers who switch to an electric vehicle can save on maintenance and fuel costs. National and local third-party incentives are also available for those who qualify.
GM says switching to an electric vehicle will save money on fuel costs, but that’s not the only area of savings. With fewer moving parts than an internal combustion engine, fewer maintenance costs are required over the long term, according to the company.
“With fewer moving parts, you benefit from fewer engine maintenance like oil changes, transmission fluid flushes and engine belt replacements,” GM says.
The online savings calculator estimates savings based on three factors: average fuel consumption, annual mileage and postal code. After entering these three answers into the calculator, customers can “visualize” the potential savings.
The savings calculator and several other features are available at https://evlive.gm.com.
