Hybrid Fuel Cars

There are many options out there for those looking for an environmentally sound way of driving. Hybrid fuel cars are certainly one of the most popular categories of green cars and one with a very promising future as conventional cars will tend to become hybridized.

Hybrid fuel cars usually combine two sources of power, the most common being a combination of electric motors and gasoline combustion engines. Hybrid fuel cars donít have to be plugged-in for power as the battery is recharged through the combustion engine. Hybrid fuel cars produce less pollution because the combination of battery power and internal combustion decrease the emission of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases.


As to performance, hybrid fuel cars match conventional cars in most criteria, including road handling and acceleration times. Fuel performance is better than in the case of standard vehicles and drivers can expect innovative on-board features. Also, because hybrid fuel cars use gas, fuel recharging is carried out at traditional gas stations.

Purchase costs of hybrid fuel cars are not much higher, although repair and maintenance may be, due to some of the innovative aspects of the technology involved. The good news is that some hybrid fuel car manufactures offer generous warranties of up to 100,000 miles. Finally, hybrid fuel cars often qualify for tax breaks which are part of governmental incentives to increase consumer adoption of greener cars.
