Jim Butler Auto Group: Invests in the EV Future

2022 has seen countless headlines about electric vehicles thanks to volatile gas prices and new legislation, and Jim Butler Auto Group is ready for this new trend. EVs recently received a boost in interest with the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, which incentivizes the purchase of select EVs through tax cuts for buyers. The IRA extended the current $7,500 consumer income tax credit for the purchase of new electric vehicles and added a new $4,000 credit for buying a used EV.

In April, Jim Butler Auto Group announced a $1.5 million investment in electric vehicle infrastructure across their 10 Missouri dealership locations this year. All locations will get upgrades in electric vehicle charging stations, special tools for servicing electric vehicles, and additional training for sales and service staff.

Jim Butler Auto Group President Brad Sowers believes investing in EV is a smart bet: “My gut instinct has been to invest in EV infrastructure, and current forecasts predict a quarter of new car sales will be electric by the end of 2025. Now is the time to buy an EV.”
