If you care about the planet, then you must think in terms of fuel efficiency, non-polluting, and eco-friendly transport. One way that you can contribute to the environment is by getting a hybrid car. Here are the reasons why.
Hybrid cars are small in size. Their engine is fuel efficient. They have a start and stop option, meaning when the car comes to a complete stop, the engine shuts off and then restarts when the car shifts into gear.
These cars are powered are powered by a gasoline engine and an electric motor that takes care of acceleration. The batteries of the electric motor recharge automatically by kinetic energy which is produced during braking.
The engine produce less emission, give better mileage, idle less and is fuel efficient. Speaking of fuel efficiency, the power-train technology enables using two power sources. The car battery is made of nickel-metal-hydride. It has has high capacity and can run the car when needed.
The aerodynamic design reduces drag and the tires are made of a special rubber that reduces friction.
Many car brands, nowadays, offer hybrid cars. Honda, Ford, Toyota are just some of them. But before you decide to buy a hybrid car, do some research about the pros and cons. Talk to some owners if you can. Test drive a few to see which one suits your style the best. Some are ideal for city driving while others are more efficient on open roads. And keep in mind that even though they are more pricy than normal vehicles, with the amount of fuel you will save in the long run, they are a quite sensible choice, especially if you care for the environment.
