Are you are currently thinking about getting an eco-friendly vehicle but you want to know more about the different types on the market?We can help you find which one suits your needs.
HybridsThe hybrid as we have known it for over 10 years uses a combustion motor with an electric motor. The advantage is that the electric motor does some of the work, allowing the classic motor to be smaller and use less gasoline. It's a great way to be greener while still getting the autonomy of a regular car.
Plug-in HybridsThe plug-in hybrid has a bigger battery than a classic hybrid. This means it can drive without using the combustion motor. The driving distance is limited to a range of 15 to 90 kilometers. This is not much, but for someone who lives close to work, it is often enough.
When the battery runs down the gas motor kicks in. This means that the autonomy of plug-in hybrid is the same as a normal hybrid.
Electric CarsOnly electric cars are fully powered by electricity, which means they don't emit greenhouse gas when they are operating. Because of this, they are the best eco-friendly vehicles. The driving distance of the current models is between 100 and 400 kilometers, which is more than enough for everyday use.
The drawback of the electric car is that you need to plan your trips according to the charging stations and the time you must wait for your car to charge. The good news is that there are more charging stations than ever and that the driving distance of electric cars is getting better every year.
Eco-friendly vehicles are a great option if you want to use less fuel. And they are less expensive than ever, especially considering the different government grants created to encourage people to buy them.
You just need to explore which kind of model is the best for your needs and your budget. You might just fall in love with one of the many "green" cars available!
