Hybrid and electric cars: pick the one right for you
In recent years, hybrid cars have become increasingly popular, especially plug-in hybrid vehicles’ models. They embrace current environmental trends and are consistent with the efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG). They consist of a marriage between a gasoline engine and an electric motor. They are more and more efficient and allow you substantial savings on fuel consumption.
But, there is also another serious trend that is observed in the car market, and this is the rise of 100% electric vehicles. Indeed, car manufacturers are investing significant sums to design and develop this kind of vehicles. They all want to increase their market share in order to conquer the consumer of tomorrow. Tomorrow is now for many.

Hybrid or Electric?
The options on the market are more and more refined, and the models are increasingly diversified. Hybrid cars are more and more powerful and give you peace of mind with this combination of an electric motor and a gasoline engine. Plug-in hybrids do work for you when you drive your vehicle. The electric motor recharges while driving, allowing you to travel longer distances.
In addition, non-rechargeable hybrids have been precursors to hybridization. It is necessary to stop at a terminal to recharge the electric motor. However, car manufacturers wanted to go further and sought to better meet the needs of their consumers. They decided to introduce models of rechargeable vehicles.
In short, hybrids are a good choice and offer you peace of mind while driving. These are low-consumption cars that help improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gases. They are as useful for long distances as in urban areas. Finally, second hand hybrid cars are sought after. Their increased longevity gives you an excellent value for your money. Among the most popular hybrid models, we should mention the Chevrolet Volt, Toyota Prius, Hyundai Ioniq, Mitsubishi Outlander, Honda Clarity, etc.
Electric cars are becoming more fashionable at car dealers. It should be known that the engineers of the car manufacturers refine their first drafts of 100%-electric vehicles.
For a long time, the question remained the autonomy of the lithium battery in these vehicles. Now, their life has grown significantly, so Ford engineers are working hard to produce a 100% electric vehicle for its trucks, especially the F-150. This means that electric vehicles are more and more popular and improvements in the electric range are at the rendezvous.
They are also many who say that in the next few years, the Canadian automobile market will experience a substantial increase in electric vehicles. These contribute significantly to the reduction of GHGs, do not consume fuel, and they’re overall very environmentally-friendly vehicles. In addition, with the proliferation of charging stations, increased autonomy of these vehicles and their performance, we can say that electric vehicles have made their mark in our landscape.
Electric cars are clearly in line with the trend of tomorrow's vehicles. There is an interesting range of these vehicles like hybrid cars. It is therefore wrong to say that these cars are of comparable size. Nowadays, electric and hybrid vehicles come in all the formats traditionally offered by manufacturers: sedans, subcompacts, SUVs, etc. With a little effort, it is relatively simple to find a green vehicle in your favorite “package”.
