It’s unbelievable how one invention and you can save the environment. I bet you don’t know what I am talking about. Well, I am talking about hybrid cars. Unbelievable? I thought so. Well, for those who do not know what a hybrid car is, read on.
A hybrid car, or commonly known as hybrid vehicle, uses at least two distinct power sources to propel. Some of the most common power sources are: rechargeable energy storage system (RESS), a fueled power source, air or electric motor or gas engine.
Most hybrid cars are known as hybrid-electric vehicle or HEV. What is a HEV? For starters, I am going to tell you that HEV uses combustion and electric motors. Get he hint? It’s okay if you don’t.
A conventional propulsion system and RESS are usually combined together to make a HEV. Yes, you read it right; they are combined. They are combined to achieve better fuel economy..
HEVs are considered the premium for hybrid cars. Thus, this tells us that they are more expensive. This is usually due to the car having more electronics and also extra batteries. However, some hybrid cars are considered more expensive because of their design. One important thing to note is that when you sell your hybrid car it is not the same as selling your normal car. The selling price depends on the usage of the car.
Why would people want to drive a hybrid car? The answer is very obvious. I cannot find a better way to answer this; we have one planet, why not protect it. So, other than the benefit of being environmentally friendly, what are the other benefits. We’ll come to that later. In the mean while, you have to trust me on this; hybrid cars are fun to drive.
By telling you these benefits, I know it is insufficient to persuade you to get a hybrid car. So, I am going to uncover more about hybrid cars. So, why don’t you read on to find out more?
We all know that the price of fuel is just going up. And, with the higher standard of living, not many can afford. You have to trust me on this as it is proven that the fuel consumption of a hybrid car is much lesser than a conventional one.
Would you like to have a car as durable as a range rover? Well, I know I would. The gasoline engine and the brakes are very durable, almost like it has never been use before. Other than that, the cost of replacing a hybrid car’s battery is close to nothing because it is almost never replaced.
What are the chances of you driving a hybrid car? I don’t know but I know that it has been estimated that the hybrid market will increase to three million cars within a decade. One of the most popular hybrid car companies it Toyota. They estimate to sell a million hybrid cars a year within a shorter amount of time.
Your next step? Put this to the test right away. Maybe you should start planning to do your part to save the planet by trading your conventional car with a hybrid car.
