Should You Buy An Eco-Friendly Hybrid Car?

Should You Buy An Eco-Friendly Hybrid Car?

Buying an eco-friendly hybrid car can be beneficial not just to the local and global environment, but also to your own personal finances and way of living.

Eco-Friendly Hybrid Cars

For most of automotive history, the vast majority of cars have been gasoline-powered, internal combustion engine vehicles. Automobiles that rely solely on an electric battery have existed almost since the very beginning of the automotive industry. Unfortunately, business, and political interests worked to repress electric vehicles and hinder their development. More recently, hybrid vehicles have become a viable option for Canadian drivers.

Hybrid cars have both an internal combustion engine and an electric engine. Typically, these vehicles operate on battery power until that energy runs out or until they go above a certain speed, at which point they revert to the gasoline-powered engine. The best quality of a hybrid vehicle is that it uses much less gas. That’s what makes eco-friendly hybrid cars better for the environment.

The Advantages Of Eco-Friendly Hybrid Cars

Hybrid cars are eco-friendly because they emit far less carbon and other pollutants. We focus on CO2 a lot because it is the most prevalent greenhouse gas, and therefore it’s the biggest contributor to climate change. Particle pollution is also a major problem on the local level. Gas-powered cars are a major cause for the poor air quality in many cities today, think of the photos of LA covered under a sky of smog.

Hybrid cars also offer financial benefits. Because they use less gas, hybrid drivers don’t spend as much at the pump. With the drastic increase we’ve seen in gas prices in 2022, many people are looking towards eco-friendly hybrid cars. There are also tax breaks available for environmentally-friendly vehicles. And you can use “green/eco-friendly” parking spots, so that’s a bonus.

Are Eco-Friendly Hybrid Cars Hard To Service?

One question many buyers of hybrid vehicles have is whether the infrastructure is there to support their vehicle. Electrical charging is a major issue, especially in rural and suburban communities. While fully electric vehicles have some advantages over hybrids, this is one advantage of a hybrid vehicle. Because it can still use gas, you don’t have to worry about your battery dying in the middle of the Trans-Canada Highway.

Another question many have is whether or not they can find technicians who can support and repair their hybrid vehicle. If you live in the Greater Toronto Area, this isn’t a problem.
