Rising fuel prices are a concern across the globe now. It’s getting expensive to drive around in those low-mileage sedans. Fuel efficiency is the need of the hour, not just for the rising prices, but also for the harm the gases from fuel combustion causes to our environment. And now slowly we have arrived at the era of hybrid cars.
Hybrid cars run partly on fuel and partly on electricity. So you save on fuel money and decrease your carbon footprint size. The only down-side is, the technology is still in its initial phase, so hybrid cars do cost a little extra.
So, is the extra money worth it? If you drive long distances every day, then putting a little extra to get a hybrid is definitely well worth it. The mileage you get with a hybrid car is better than you’d get in any other car with the same level of comfort. If you do not drive around much, then it depends on your budgets. If you can afford a hybrid then it is advisable to go for it.
Most hybrid cars have a fuel efficiency of about 25kmpl and most hybrid cars in the market offer only the same or a better level of comfort compared to other sedans or SUV’s. For that kind of a mileage, a hybrid car is definitely worth the cash spent on it.There are plenty of choices now in the hybrid car sector. Hybrids have been available for a while now in North America, Japan and Europe and are slowly making their presence felt in other parts of the world as well.
Some of the most popular hybrid cars in the world today are Toyota Camry Hybrid, Ford Escape Hybrid, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Honda Insight, Honda Civic Hybrid, Lexus RX 400h, GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Silverado, Cadillac Escalade an many others. The King of hybrid cars however is currently the Toyota Prius, the highest selling hybrid in the world.
So if you’re looking to buy a car, check out the hybrids. Save on fuel, and save the environment!
