such as yourself, to save money on fuel. Hybrid cars are known to cut
fuel consumption by more than half. With this kind of feature, people
would really want to own a hybrid car. Although hybrid technology has
been around for quite some time now, car manufacturers have only just
began to perfect the hybrid technology to be integrated in cars.

Just imagine a car that can run for up to 60 miles to a gallon of fuel.
This kind of car is definitely the car of the future. Not only will it
enable you to save a lot of money on fuel consumption, but it can also
help in the protection of the environment. This is because hybrid cars
are known to emit far lower levels of toxic fumes than conventional cars.

Hybrid cars have been around for quite some time now. However, for
maximum fuel efficiency, new hybrid car models are now available in the
market today. 2006 hybrid car models are now available for purchase.
These cars can let you effectively save money on fuel prices. Integrated
with the latest in hybrid technology, these cars are far more efficient
in fuel consumption and are far cleaner than the past hybrid cars
existing in the market today.

However,   there are already a lot of car manufacturers who are in the race
to build   the best hybrid car in the market. Consumers tend to be confused
on which   hybrid car they should purchase. For this reason, you should
know all   about the different hybrid cars of 2006 available in the market

First of all, you need to know the concept behind hybrid cars. The
concept of combining electric energy and gasoline engine to power a car
is what makes a hybrid car work. Although electric cars have existed in
the market for quite some time now, you have to consider the fact that
hybrid cars are far more effective than electric cars. With hybrid cars,
you no longer have to plug it in your power outlet in order to recharge
the batteries. This is possible because it is able to recapture the lost
energy when braking and coasting.

Toyota and Honda are two of the leading hybrid car manufacturers existing
today. Toyota developed the Toyota Prius that is able to operate in
electric-mode only. This means that the car is able to operate even when
the internal combustion engine is switched off. This will mean big fuel
savings when you are driving locally. Think of the gas engine as a backup
when you are going on a long drive.

Chevrolet Silverado also developed the mybrid or mild hybrid. This
particular pickup only stores a minimal amount of energy to the battery
and it doesn’t really provide much energy boost like the other hybrids
existing in the market. However, Chevrolet's so-called mybrid pickup is
perfect for camping where it can serve as a mobile generator for work or
for camping.
With the constant increase in fuel prices, you have to expect that hybrid
cars will be much more popular in the near future. You can also expect
that hybrid cars of the future will be much better in conserving fuel and
maximizing efficiency. Nissan will soon enter the hybrid car market as
well as other large car manufacturers, such as General Motors, BMW, and
DaimlerChrysler. So, you better be prepared to get rid of your old gas
guzzling conventional car and get the latest hybrid car in the market.
