When it comes to the environment, every little bit helps. Hybrid gas-electric cars are gaining in popularity because they are eco friendly and more importantly, they have great mileage (40 miles per gallon). That said, there’s still a lot of skepticism and misinformation about gas-electric vehicles. This article in BusinessWeek discusses The Top Ten Hybrid Myths.
Some interesting facts :
– you don’t need to plug in your vehicle to recharge overnight
– the batteries last a really, really long time
– they are not that expensive (typically below US$30,000)
With Hybrid diesel-electric vehicles coming soon, you’ll have a wider choice of cars that will take you further on a tank of fuel. The prototypes alone already achieve 69 miles per gallon.
