The Perks of Being a Hybrid Driver

  • More For Your Gas Money: Many hybrid vehicles stay in electric mode until the car hits a certain speed, and less use of a gas engine means your fuel goes farther. Next time you go on a road trip, you only have to shake down your passengers for a pittance.
  • Quick acceleration: Hybrid vehicles tend to gain a reputation as having weak engines, but this simply isn't the case. In fact, electric engines are instantaneous, since you don't have to wait for the combustion of the engine. Acceleration and maximum torque are fast-acting and responsive.
  • Get Out of the Greenhouse: If your priority is the environment, a hybrid vehicle has the unquestionable advantage of contributing substantially fewer greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A smaller carbon footprint is better for everyone!
  • No Such Thing as Idle Hands: When you're driving a car with only a gas engine, idling feels suspiciously wasteful. That's because it is. It contributes to smog and wastes your fuel. With a hybrid, the vehicle essentially shuts down and relies on the battery to supply power to the radio and basics that keep you comfortable. This is especially important in urban environments, where there are often “No Idling” signs posted everywhere.
  • Bone Up On the Basics: Think you know everything there is to know about driving? Well, how about a refresher course? Many hybrid vehicles come equipped with advice on how to handle the throttle better or brake in a way that maximizes efficiency. Get the most out of your hybrid by following their tips!
