									Hybrid Cars: With Every Advantage There are Always Disadvantages



Hybrid cars are considered as the car of the future. It is able to effectively conserve fuel and at the same
time, it only produces low levels of toxic fumes. Because of these benefits, hybrid cars are now growing in
popularity every single day. Many people are now considering getting rid of their conventional cars and
purchase a hybrid car to help in cutting fuel consumption cost.


Hybrid cars have two engines for it to effectively conserve fuel consumption. It has the traditional gasoline
engine and it also has an electric motor and batteries. The two engines work together in order to cut fuel
consumption. With this technology, you will be able to cut fuel usage by more than half. Just imagine, with
a hybrid car, you will be able to go more than 60 miles to the gallon. With this kind of savings, hybrid cars
are definitely the car of the future.


Hybrid car owners virtually don’t feel the increasing cost in fuel prices. This is the main advantage of the
hybrid car. There are other advantages that a hybrid car can give you. Recently, the President of the United
States has signed an agreement that hybrid car buyers will be able to enjoy tax incentives. This means that
by owning a hybrid car, you will be able to save money on taxes.


There are other benefits that the government imposes on hybrid car owners, such as free parking, and free
entry to car pool lanes. Some even offer discounted fees on toll gates.


The braking in hybrid cars is also configured to capture the energy released and uses it to charge the
batteries inside the hybrid car. This means that unlike electric cars, hybrid cars don’t actually need to be
charged from your home electric outlet.


However, with all the advantages that a hybrid car can give you, there are also disadvantages. The main
disadvantage of hybrid cars is that the retail price is quite expensive. Only people who have enough money
can purchase hybrid cars. However, the twist in all this is that hybrid cars are actually cheaper when
compared to conventional cars in the long run. If you compute the total fuel consumption of both cars, you
will actually see that you can save a lot more money on hybrid cars.


The only thing is that hybrid cars are expensive right from the car lot.


Hybrid cars are relatively heavy because of the heavy batteries installed inside the car. This is why hybrid
car manufacturers integrates smaller internal combustion engines and are constructed with light materials
and should be aerodynamic in order to maximize efficiency. This means that hybrid cars can never really go
fast.


Another issue about hybrid cars is that it is very risky in accidents. What makes a hybrid car work
effectively is also what makes it risky if it ever gets involved in an accident. This is because hybrid cars
stores high amount of voltage in its batteries. This means that there is a high chance of getting electrocuted
when you get involved in an accident. This also means that it is relatively difficult for rescuers to get the
drivers and passengers out of the hybrid cars because of the dangers of high voltage in the car.


These are the advantages and the disadvantages of hybrid cars. Car manufacturers today are now looking for
ways to get rid of the disadvantages of hybrid cars. In the near future, you will see that hybrid cars will be
lighter and also contains less risk due to high voltage dangers.
