Hybrid Cars vs. Electric Cars

Now that you’ve decided that the gas engine is no longer for you, you have to choose between a hybrid vs. electric car. Ultimately, the best choice is the vehicle that suits your lifestyle and driving styles best, so learn the core differences between a plug-in hybrid vs. an electric vehicle with us at Honda of Kenosha near Kenosha today.



Hybrid Cars vs. Electric Cars: the Basics

The main difference is that hybrid vehicles are still gas-powered, but are accompanied by an electric motor to significantly reduce fossil fuels and experience great gas mileage. With an electric car (EV), you only are using a battery and an electric motor. Electric vehicles can be plugged into a home or a public charging station, and the mileage range will vary.

Benefits of Hybrid Vehicles

Hybrid vehicles are a perfect transitionary point if you are a little apprehensive about switching from gas to electric. You can also earn significant tax and fuel savings while keeping your driving habits relatively the same. Some other benefits of a hybrid vehicle include:

  • A self-charging battery pack
  • You can fuel up at any gas station
  • Hybrid vehicles are more affordable than EVs

Essentially, if you are more inclined for longer road trips or travels without having to worry about finding charging stations, then a hybrid vehicle may be the best option. You can stop by any gas station to quickly fuel up instead of having to plan ahead.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

EVs eliminate gas-usage, making this a worthy long term investment. If you are looking for ways to increase efficiency and decrease fossil fuel use, an EV might be the best choice. Learn more about the EV benefits below:

  • Fewer maintenance costs (no oil changes or engine upkeep)
  • Potential EV incentives based on your location
  • Flexible charging options, including home and public options
  • Low or zero tailpipe emissions
  • Quieter ride with no engine noise
  • No money spent on gas
