The newest technology offering to lower vehicle fuel costs and help save
the environment at the same time is rapidly expanding around the world.
With the prospect of affordable hybrid cars on the horizon, many
potential buyers are taking a wait and see attitude, before deciding that
the money saved on the cost of gas while operating affordable hybrid cars
will be a sufficient return on their investment. Currently, hybrid
vehicles are more costly than their gas-sipping counterparts are, and
when all costs associated with driving a hybrid vehicle are factored in,
many claim the extra cost for the car does not return enough of a savings
to justify the added expense. While willing to do their part to help
reduce the emission of carbon dioxide, they are waiting for affordable
hybrid cars before making the switch. Many potential buyers are looking
past the sticker price of the car and are including all costs associated
with the vehicle’s operation.

The actual gas mileage achieved in real life may be lower than the
estimates posted on the sticker, but even with mileage projected at 40 or
50 miles per gallon, as well as figuring gas prices at $3 per gallon, it
could take up to three years to break even on the fuel savings and the
price of the vehicle.

Throughout the history of hybrid technology, the available supply of oil
and gasoline has stymied the growth of hybrid vehicle usage. A recent
push was made in the 1970s during an oil shortage, but when supplies
became available, the technology was forgotten. When Japan’s gas prices
topped three dollars a gallon in the 1990s, bringing in affordable hybrid
cars became a priority. Even with the public clamoring for affordable
hybrid cars most major car manufacturers were slow to embrace the
technology, believing that as long as gasoline was plentiful and prices
were kept in check, consumers would continue to burn gasoline and diesel
vehicles without a second thought. With sale comparatively slow for
hybrid vehicles, compared to conventional cars, they can make a case for
being right.
However, consumers are smart enough to figure out that fuel efficient,
clean burning affordable hybrid cars will be making their appearance in
the near future and are willing to wait. Manufacturers will have to meet
the demands of the car-buying public and those that fail to do so will
find themselves losing business to the companies that do manage to
produce affordable hybrid cars.
