Summary:
A regular car uses an internal combustion engine with a fuel-air mixture
powering it. A hybrid car on the other hand powers itself not only using
the conventional means but it also uses a variety of alternate means like
fuel-cells and solar-energy to turn the wheels. That makes it more
environment friendly and increases its mileage.

Article Body:
A regular car uses an internal combustion engine with a fuel-air mixture
powering it. A hybrid car on the other hand powers itself not only using
the conventional means but it also uses a variety of alternate means like
fuel-cells and solar-energy to turn the wheels. That makes it more
environment friendly and increases its mileage.

Some people think that hybrid cars are the cars of the future. They say
it is what we will be driving in a ten years time. It is true that hybrid
cars have many advantages. But we must not forget the shortcomings of the
hybrid car.

Gas and oil are non renewable sources of energy. They also cause much
damage to the environment. There is a danger they might soon also be
depleted from the earth. On the other hand, hybrid cars are environment
friendly. They source of energy they use is renewable and therefore they
pose much less threat to the world. Hybrid cars are efficient and save
money on fueling.

Performance wise, hybrid cars are rubbish. At the stage they currently
are, they are more than likely to break down after traveling every few
miles. If you buy a hybrid car, leave for office an hour earlier than you
used to before, because hybrid cars are much slower than normal cars.
Because they have very less energy to run with, they are made with as
light bodies as possible. We want to protect the environment to protect
our children. But if you're planning to buy them a hybrid car to do so,
the chances of them being flattened by some bigger car are far more. So
if you want to keep your children safe, why not buy them a Land Rover
instead? And then there's the matter of power again. With the amount of
power a hybrid can provide, imagine the trouble and time it would take
for you to reach a high altitude point with a fairly steep road, that is,
if you would ever manage to get up there on that car.
Whether hybrid cars will be the future of the car industry, one cannot
say for sure. But one thing is certain, where it stands today is quite
for from a point where it will replace the petrol or gas powered cars.
