					The Advantages of Gasoline Electric Hybrid Cars over Conventional Cars




Today, more and more people are now considering getting rid of their gas-guzzling
conventional cars and purchase a new kind of car available in the market today called hybrid
cars. You may wonder why hybrid cars are gaining popularity all over the United States, but
you should consider that hybrid cars can definitely give you a lot more benefits than
conventional cars.



Hybrid cars can cost a lot more than conventional cars in terms of retail price. However, if
you think in a long-term basis, hybrid cars will tend to be a lot cheaper than you can imagine.
Hybrid cars are the next generation cars now available in the market that will enable you to
save lots of money by getting more miles on a gallon.



Because of the constantly increasing price of gasoline, many people tend to purchase hybrid
cars in order to save money on gasoline. Just imagine, a hybrid car will be able to cut fuel
consumption in half compared to conventional cars. As you can imagine, you will save a lot
more money in the long run. What you pay for the hybrid car will be worth it. This is because
conventional cars will tend to be more expensive in the long run.



Hybrid cars use both gasoline and the cleanest energy source available, which is electricity. It
also has smaller gasoline engines, built with light materials and is designed to be
aerodynamic to reduce drag in order to give you the full efficiency potential.



Hybrid cars work by utilizing both the gasoline-powered engine and the electric motor to run
the car. When the car is running idle or when it is not in motion but the engine is running, it
automatically switches off the gasoline engine and the car will run on electric power. Once
you stepped on the accelerator pedal, the hybrid car will automatically turn on the gas
engine again. With this concept, you won't spend a lot of fuel when you are trapped in a
gridlock. Also, when the car is in motion, the electric motor and the gasoline engine will
share the propulsion.



Another great advantage of gasoline-electric cars or hybrid cars is that it runs on clean
energy. It has been found that hybrid cars emit far lower toxic fumes than conventional cars.
Also, since it runs on a small gasoline engine and an electric motor, it is far quieter than
conventional cars. This means that it can effectively help in reducing air pollution and noise
as well.



Hybrid cars don 抰 need to be plugged in like electric cars to recharge. This is because the
batteries are charged when the car itself is running or when the car is braking.



Recently, the President of the United States has signed an agreement in 2005 that states tax
incentives for hybrid car buyers. This means that when you purchase a hybrid car, you will
get huge tax relief depending on the hybrid car you purchase. It will depend on the amount
of fuel it can save compared to a conventional car made in 2002 with the same weight class.



With all these benefits, gasoline-electric cars or hybrid cars is definitely the car of choice in
today's world. You will never be affected with constant oil price hikes and erratic movement
in prices in the fuel industry.



With hybrid cars, you can benefit a lot more than you can imagine.
