Why Hybrids Are Taking Over

Posted Tuesday, Aug 27, 2019

There are Many reasons for exactly why hybrids are taking over in the auto industry. As we go over quite a few of these good reasons you will begin to see, and if you haven't already jumped onto the Hybrid Vehicle band wagon you will become a believer.

As the first mass produced hybrid vehicle, The Toyota Prius, hit the market there was a bit of skepticism as to how it would catch on. Now a little over 20 years later, there are tons of options for hybrid vehicles in just about every vehicle make.

Why Hybrid Vehicles Are Great For The Consumer

There is a hybrid vehicle for every type of consumer out there. From Trucks, to SUV's to compact cars and Sports Cars you are no longer limited to the most popular, the Toyota Prius, as your only hybrid vehicle.

However, the Prius is one of the most dependable, durable, and longest lasting hybrids and vehicle on the market overall with ton's of awards over the years, not to mention the 2019 Top Safety Pick award it earned this year.

Speaking of Toyota, The Toyota Camry, the most popular mid sedan in the world comes as a Hybrid as well and they have been available in the hybrid model since 2007 and are getting more popular every year.

So besides the different types of Hybrids that ere available, we can't miss the most obvious fact that you save on gas with any hybrid you purchase. On average around $3000 in gas savings with a hybrid vehicle.

Here is a list of hybrid vehicles we typically have on hand:

  • Toyota Prius

Misconceptions About Hybrids

On of the most common misconceptions is that they are slow. Some of the early Hybrids have a slight hesitation on takeoff, however one of the fastest cars retailed is a hybrid. The new Lotus Evija with only around 2000 Horsepower, definitely nothing to scoff at.

Another misconception is that they are all expensive. We usually have Toyota Prius's price ranging from $2500 - $7000+ depending on the year, model and features. There are a few other false accusations about hybrids you can read on another post we have on the 4 Major Myths About Hybrids.
