The Case for Hybrid Vehicles on the Streets of LA

For drivers who want an efficient driving experience with plenty of horsepower to boot, a hybrid automobile is the optimal choice. Unlike electric vehicles, hybrids incorporate an internal combustion engine along with a lithium-ion battery in order to give you the best of both worlds when it comes to performance and efficiency. Let’s take a closer look now at some of the key perks drivers of hybrid vehicles enjoy.

  • Superior Efficiency Compared to Non-Hybrid Gas Vehicles: A hybrid can often achieve anywhere from 40 to 60 mpg on the road. This level of efficiency is afforded by the unique configuration of electric and gas power operating together.
  • Excellent Horsepower: Unlike the typical EV on the market today, a hybrid can still achieve tremendous horsepower and get you where you need to go quickly.
  • Easy Refueling: Since a hybrid vehicle utilizes a gas-based engine, it’s easy to fuel up no matter where you are in the country. No recharge stations? No problem.

Important Information about Electric Vehicles

If you’re more interested in an electric vehicle, you’ll definitely want to pay close attention to the following information. Read on to learn more about some of the key benefits associated with investing in an EV!

  • Maximum Efficiency: Don’t want to pollute the atmosphere or use a single quart of gasoline? An electric vehicle is the right choice for your needs. You’ll be able to drive potentially hundreds of miles on a single charge.
  • Maintenance Simplicity: Internal combustion engines are an old and complex technology that are prone to issues and maintenance problems. EV’s forgo these components and can drive down the cost of your maintenance bill.
  • A Growing Network of Charging Stations: Unlike hybrids or gas vehicles, EVs require specially-configured electric recharge stations. California offers a fantastic network for EV drivers looking to recharge.

Choosing the Right Automobile for Your Needs

Still on the fence about choosing the right vehicle for your needs? Here are some key questions you should ask yourself:

  • Do I want to go on cross-country road trips?”: If you do, then you’ll definitely want to invest in a hybrid rather than an EV due to the current lack of recharge stations in many states.
  • Do I value environmental benefits over all else?”: For those drivers who highly value the health of their environment, EVs offer the superior experience.
  • What is my budget?”: An EV tends to cost more on average than a hybrid. You’ll be on the cutting edge, but that comes with a small premium. However, tax benefits – especially in California – can lessen the impact on your wallet.
