Go Green-ish: 6 Reasons To Consider A Hybrid
Intro: Here’s why a hybrid could be the right car for your family.
Get with the times. Driving a hybrid car, one that merges the power of a conventional internal combustion engine with an electric motor to reduce emissions and improve fuel economy, isn’t just for celebrities anymore. Here’s why it’s a responsible choice for you and your family.
- Easy to drive
Okay. Hybrids aren’t particularly fast cars. But they’re just as smooth as the regular cars you’re used to driving. What’s good is that you don’t have to learn anything new when you drive them. You just have to get used to how quiet they are. Sometimes, you may not even realize that the engine is running. Because they run on a combination of the electric motor and a petrol engine, hybrids are also far more efficient than regular cars. There’s no recharging required either. The electric battery charges as you drive it.
- Gives you what you need
Hybrids offer all the same creature comforts your regular car does. They come packed with the features you and your family need, offer excellent fuel efficiency and perform competently. There’s also a wide range of hybrid cars available from multiple manufacturers. So if you believe in brand loyalty and prefer the service quality of a particular company, you’re likely to find one that meets your requirements.
- Saves money
Admit it. The ever increasing fuel prices make you wonder how long you can keep driving your car. Well, hybrids do their part in easing your worries. The electric and petrol power combination reduces fuel consumption to such an extent, you’ll be waving happily at petrol stations as you drive by them. Add up the savings, and you’ll see the thousands you save every year on fuel. And maybe you can get that nice big screen TV you’ve been eyeing.
- Kinder to the environment
Climate change is real. And everyone needs to do their part in protecting the environment. Switching to a hybrid is one way to start. Compared to a petrol-only full-sized SUV, hybrids produce 21% lower emissions. If more people switch to hybrids, you and your family get cleaner air to breathe. And you do your small part to help the environment.
- Shows good values
If you’re a family person, you want to set the right example for your children. Trying to make the world a better place shows your kids that you want to leave them a world that was better than the one you inherited. A simple decision like driving a car that’s kinder to the environment will help with that. Actions, after all, speak louder than words.
- Be cool
Our planet is warming up. Your hybrid is a small way to mitigate that. But it’s not just about that. Owning an eco-friendly car is also a cool thing today. It’s also a smart thing to do. It’ll also make you part of a club that is filled with famous celebrities. And when you let people know how much money you save with a car that’s smarter than theirs, it’s bound to make an impact.
So go on. Make the trade from your gas guzzler to the smart, kind, eco-friendly hybrid.
