Advantages of EVs

Buying an EV holds distinct benefits over gas-powered options. We encourage drivers to get behind the wheel to experience the feel of an EV, but we know that's not always an option. However, we're happy to inform you of these advantages below and show you why we recommend an EV for your next vehicle!

After you purchase your electric vehicle, Turan Foley will be here for all your EV service and maintenance needs. We'll be with you every step of the way!

Electric vehicles utilize different energy methods to help your vehicle move. Instead of the traditional gas-powered engine rumbling under the hood, EVs boast rechargeable batteries and electric motors for efficient ranges and emission-free commutes. EV models are quieter than gas-powered vehicles, allowing you to enjoy a smooth, uninterrupted ride without listening to the whine of gas propulsion.

EV models can also help you save money on your new vehicle! Gas-powered engines don't typically offer savings for their powertrains, but EVs feature a federal tax credit of up to $7,500! You also get access to local state incentives and rebates, helping you save even more on your new vehicle. Gas-powered models often require routine maintenance on their engines, with frequent oil changes and gas fill-ups racking up charges down the road. You won't have this same problem with EVs! Electric vehicles don't have a traditional engine and no moving parts to address. And gas pumps? Not a problem with your electrified vehicle!

Charging Information

Charging your EV is as easy as plugging in at home after a hard day's work! Most EV models come with Dual-Level Charge Cords that you can plug in at home. When you're on the road, you can take advantage of a growing number of public charging stations that feature Level 3 chargers capable of achieving an 80-percent recharge in just under an hour! At Turan Foley Cadillac, we offer EV charging stations for your convenience - we're here to sell and service your electric vehicle!

Electric Vehicle FAQs

Lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles are designed with protective measures to ensure longevity of battery life. Unlike cell phone batteries, if properly used and maintained, the battery in an EV will enjoy a long and reliable useful life.

Yes, you can use a regular 120V household outlet to charge an EV. While charging speed will be relatively slow, it can be sufficient if you don’t drive long distances or have access to another charging solution (for example, at work). In other cases, it is recommended to use a Level 2 charger. Cadillac LYRIQ will come with a charger that can be used for both Level 1 charging (120V) and Level 2 charging (240V).

In order to use an EV, owners simply need access to an electrical outlet. To charge the larger capacity batteries like those that will be present in Cadillac EVs, many customers should consider having a level 2 charging station professionally installed. Cadillac plans to offer charging solutions and installation support to make the process as easy as possible.

Actual charge times will vary based on battery condition, output of charger vehicle settings, and outside temperature. There are three levels of charging—for example, these are the charge time estimates for the 2023 LYRIQ RWD:

  • AC Level 1 charging can deliver about 3.5 miles of range per hour (at home use)
  • AC Level 2 charging can deliver 21 to 52 miles of range per hour (at home use / at work)
  • DC fast charging can deliver 76 miles of range in 10 minutes of charge time or 144 miles in 30 minutes of charge time (public use)

Ultium-powered EVs are designed for Level 2 and DC fast charging. Most will have 400V battery packs and up to 200kW fast-charging capability. Our platform has the capability to charge over 100 miles of range in ten minutes on a DC Fast charge.

Cadillac plans to offer a dual cord-set that is capable of charging either Level 1 (120V) or Level 2 (240V)

Ultium is GM’s brand of next-generation EV batteries, drive units, and vehicle platforms. Ultium-powered EVs are designed for Level 2 and DC fast charging. Most will have 400-volt battery packs and up to 200 kW fast-charging capability. Ultium packs can be formed from 6, 8, 10, or 12 modules, or up to 24 modules from two double-stacked Ultium battery packs.

GM’s ability to stack long pouch cells vertically or horizontally in modules is unique in the industry. It allows for a lower cabin floor yielding more interior room than some comparable EVs that use cylindrical cells in battery packs with a uniform height.
