Hybrids become popular when gas prices are on the rise.

When gas prices go up, so do the sales of hybrid vehicles.  With hybrids you have the option of paying the higher gas prices or you can always switch over to electricity.Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Many environment minded consumers are attracted to hybrid electric vehicles due to the following features…

  • Fuel economy
  • Sophisticated technology
  • Low emissions
  • Engine power management

Hybrids don’t always have to be plugged in, they make their own electricity. It’s generated when the car is braking or the gasoline engine produces more power than needed, the battery is charged using this generated power.

There is a wide range of hybrids to choose from on the market today, from compact to luxury models. Fuel economy is achieved on some models that have electrical system advancements. Others have greater improvements in fuel economy with use of dual source powertrains, using an electric motor along with an internal combustion engine.
