Hybrid vs. Electric Car Benefits

2020 Acura MDX Sport Hybrid

With rising gas prices and concerns about the environment, many drivers around Manhasset and Garden City are opting for more eco-friendly vehicles. If you are in this dilemma as well, you may be trying to decide between a hybrid vs. electric car. The automotive experts at Rallye Acura have compared hybrid cars vs. electric cars below to help you narrow down your search and make a more informed decision.



Benefits of Hybrid Vehicles

Should you choose a hybrid vs. electric car? If you want a vehicle that gets the most out of every drop of gas and you are not quite ready to make the switch to an EV, a hybrid is an excellent option. You can save on gas consumption without having to change your driving habits. Here are just a few of the additional perks:

  • The battery charges itself
  • You can stop and fuel up at any gas station
  • Hybrids are often more affordable than EVs

Bottom line? If you have a lengthy commute to the office or frequently travel long distances, a hybrid vehicle is a good choice for you. You can stop at any gas station to fuel up quickly, just as you are now with a vehicle featuring a traditional internal combustion engine.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

With an EV, you don’t need gasoline at all, so rising gas prices are no longer a concern for you. If you prefer to drive around Glen Cove without producing harmful emissions, an EV is your best bet. Advancements in EV technology continue to make electric vehicles even more appealing. Advantages of an EV include:

  • Low or zero tailpipe emissions
  • Quieter ride with no engine noise
  • No money spent on gas
  • Fewer maintenance costs (no oil changes or engine upkeep)
  • Potential EV incentives based on your location
  • Flexible charging options, including home and public options

If you live in an area with a lot of public charging stations or you primarily use your vehicle for quick errands around town, an EV is great for you.
