If you are in the market for a new car, it might be worth your while to invest in a hybrid. Not only will you be saving the environment, you’ll also make a huge saving with your motoring expenses.

So what actually is a hybrid? A hybrid is a combination of two engines – a petrol engine and an electric motor. If most of your driving is urban based, you can save a pretty penny.

In this blog article, we highlight some of the key benefits for drivers who decide to make the switch to hybrid.

Less Noise

Switch to a hybrid motor and the first thing you’ll notice is the noise – the lack of it! A hybrid is a great way to keep noise pollution under control and to keep your neighbours happy if you’re driving late at night or in the early morning.

More Euros For You

With significant cost savings to be taken advantage of, hybrids are becoming popular with families who are trying to cut down on their monthly expenses. Ideal for city driving, the electrical motor kicks in once the petrol engine is switched off. With a hybrid, you’ll be saving on fuel costs and reducing the output of CO2 emissions.

No Charging Time

With standard hybrid cars, you don’t have to worry about plugs and cables – the batteries are always charged. You fill up with fuel as you normally would with a conventional car. If the battery levels drop, they can power back up from the excess energy from the engine.

Maintenance is Easy!

With energy efficient breaking, you’ll experience less wear and tear with your break pads and you’ll notice that they don’t have to be replaced as often. With some hybrid models, you’ll also notice that there is less wear on the tyre – one of the most common reasons for failing the NCT. Generally the cost of servicing a hybrid is very similar to that of a conventional car.

Automatic All the Way

One of the nice advantages with hybrids is that you don’t have to worry about the stick shift. With automatic transmission, driving becomes simple , easy and comfortable.
