Hybrid Electric Car Benifits and Tips.

Aug 1, 2008
You just filled the gas tank and can't believe the numbers looking back at you. You cannot see an end to it, every time you go to the gas station it seems the price of gasoline has increased. The high cost of fuel makes you angry and you want something done to control the rising prices. Then you remember a magazine you read about the hybrid electric car and decide to check them out.

A positive change for our environment depends on each of us making an effort to implement those changes. Therefore, you have decided to look into the purchase of a hybrid electric car, convincing yourself of the positive points of electric hybrids is the beginning of the road. The electric hybrid car is less hazardous to the environment and consumes less energy.

Electric hybrids combine the strengths of a traditional internal combustion engine with those of en electrically powered vehicle. The electric power is generated by batteries made from Nickel-Metal-Hydride. These light weight batteries are designed to be completely discharged and recharged and have the ability of storing electrical power.

The electric hybrid car has an internal combustion engine like most other cars, but it's smaller. In addition to being energy efficient, the motor is smaller in size and lighter too. As the motor is built based upon the average amount of power needed by the electric hybrid car, efficiency is maximized. The specification of the highest level of demanded power will effect the size of a motor in a typical combustion motor.

The Civic Hybrid, and Honda Insight incorporate an electric motor along side the gas engine which is only used when the driver requires more power, such as going up a hill and overtaking another vehicle.

In addition, electric hybrids are more cost efficient for the owner, who can expect around 40 to 60 mpg from one of these vehicles.

Electric hybrids are better for the environment.

The electric hybrid car creates less pollution and consumes less energy for the power generated. Less air pollution comes from less fuel expended per mile of travel. Looking for ways to reduce carbon monoxide and other harmful pollutants? Preliminary tests have shown that operating a hybrid electric car can cut down these emissions by 80 to 90 percent. In addition to this being a positive factor upon the environment, it also has major well-being implications on the population as well.

One additional environmental benefit takes into account the conservation of our natural resources. It stands to reason that the using a hybrid electric car will reduce gasoline consumption quite considerably. The less gasoline we use now, the more that will be available underground for the future.
