Hybrid cars are a good option for those wanting to use less non-renewable fuel, and people who might be considering buying a new car in the near future. Why the near future? Because by 2040, the government aims to have eradicated hybrid cars, in favour of electric cars. However, whilst the technology for electric cars isn’t quite up to scratch just yet, a hybrid could be a good alternative. Often, they won’t need to be charged like an electric car, so it takes away the need for a charging station that is near to you.
Some people feel that hybrid cars aren’t as energy efficient, perhaps because they don’t use fuel as efficiently due to the weight of components. There is definitely a long way to go with the technology, but it’s possible investment will be made in purely electric vehicles as opposed to hybrid models. For now, it is a more environmentally friendly alternative.
