Many new car buyers are quickly scared off by the higher sticker price of hybrid vehicles. That’s too bad for several reasons. Once you look past the initial purchase price, hybrids can actually save a ton of money over the life of the vehicle.
Save on Gas
Most people think of the hybrid as a way to save on the cost of fuel. That’s true. Hybrids can save a bundle on fuel costs. The whole idea of a hybrid is to use the gasoline-powered engine only when it is most economical to do so. Otherwise, the car uses an electric motor, which uses no gas at all. Of course, there are costs for recharging the batteries, but recharging can even be scheduled for your electricity provider’s periods of cheapest rates.
Save on Insurance
Many insurance providers today offer discounts for hybrid vehicles based on their lower probability for accident involvement.
