Hybrid vehicles: a balanced choice
A hybrid vehicle combines an electric motor with a gasoline engine to provide year-round fuel savings that are good for your wallet and the environment. Unlike electric vehicles, hybrids don’t need to be plugged in to recharge their batteries. This makes them especially attractive to drivers who travel long distances. The simple act of braking or decelerating automatically recharges the battery, eliminating the need to install a charging station at home.
On top of curbing your fuel costs, the electric motor helps extend the life of the vehicle by limiting the use of the gasoline engine. This also allows you to drive further on the same amount of fuel. Hybrids are perfect for people who mainly drive in urban areas as frequent stopping and starting keeps the battery charged. By the same token, this makes them less ideal for people who do a lot of highway driving. Lastly, another great way to reduce your carbon footprint is to bring your car in for regular maintenance. This prevents premature wear and tear on certain parts of your vehicle to ensure it lasts for years to come. Contact your local Mister Muffler today to make an appointment
