What is the Difference Between Hybrid vs. Electric Cars?

Before you commit to a hybrid or electric vehicle purchase, you’ll want to understand the respective benefits of both types. We’ve broken down the major distinctions between hybrid cars vs. electric cars for your convenience:

What are Hybrid Cars?

Hybrid vehicles are still gas-powered. However, hybrids aren’t fully dependent on a gasoline engine to generate power for forward motion like more conventional gas-powered vehicles. Along with a gasoline engine, you’ll also find a secondary electric motor in hybrid cars. The electric motor and gas engine work in harmony to generate power as you drive along Dolan Springs roads. This process drastically improves your gas mileage and allows your battery to self-charge, eliminating the need for a plug-in power source.

What are Electric Cars?

An EV (electric vehicle) runs exclusively on electricity. You’ll only find a battery and an electric motor on EVs. An electric car’s battery is much larger than a hybrid’s because it plays a more significant role in generating power for the vehicle. EVs can be plugged into a public charging station or a home charger to supply electricity to the battery. Depending on the battery’s charge, your mileage range will vary.

Hybrid vs. Electric Cars: Pros and Cons

Hybrid vehicles are a great option for Hackberry drivers who are still experiencing trepidation about transitioning to a fully electric vehicle. You can take advantage of significant fuel savings without having to drastically change your driving habits. Some other great reasons to invest in a hybrid car include:

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

On the other hand, electric vehicles completely eliminate the need for gasoline. This will lead to incredible savings in the long run. EVs are guaranteed to save you money and protect the environment. However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the perks associated with electric vehicle ownership:

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