Should You Drive Hybrid?
Choosing whether to drive a hybrid vehicle used to be about wanting to do your part to help the environment. The choice could be a tough one, depending on what you wanted in a vehicle, because it meant you’d be giving up performance in exchange for a smaller footprint.
However, now, hybrid engines can deliver performance comparable to gas engines, which means it’s a better time than ever to consider switching to hybrid. Especially when you factor in all the other benefits. And that brings us to the purpose of this guide: helping you explore all the amazing benefits of owning an electric vehicle.

4 Benefits of Driving a Hybrid Vehicle
Below are four of the most compelling benefits of buying and driving a hybrid electric vehicle:
1. Short-term Cash Savings
One of the most compelling benefits of driving a hybrid vehicle is a benefit you’ll notice almost from the moment you drive it off the lot.
Do you know how much you spend filling up each year? If you’re not sure now, you’ll definitely know once you’re driving a hybrid– for all the right reasons. That’s because you’ll fill up far less with a hybrid vehicle, considerably less often.
How much you save all depends on what type of vehicle you drive now, but if average gas prices are any indication, it will be hundreds (or even thousands) per year.
2. Long-term Tax Savings
Another form of cash savings you can expect from driving a hybrid is the long-term tax savings.
Depending on where you live and the specific policy in place there, you can look forward to one or more different tax credits and other incentives. In fact, the tax credit for driving a hybrid vehicle can be as high as a whopping $7,500 every year.
3. Reduce Carbon Footprint
The reason that brings many drivers to consider a hybrid, driving a hybrid means you’re doing your part to help reduce our global carbon footprint and build a better future for the next generations.
4. More Fun to Drive
Another big benefit, and one that many drivers don’t expect before buying their first hybrid, is just how fun hybrids are to drive.
Ever flown in a spaceship, floating through space? Likely not, but once you drive your first hybrid vehicle you’ll know what it feels like. Hybrids are known for being incredibly quiet and smooth, to the point where you can sometimes feel like you’re not even connected to the ground.
Not to mention, hybrid engines are more powerful than ever, in many cases competing with their gas engine counterparts in performance. No longer are hybrid engines slower and less performance-oriented, so you can expect a fast and exhilarating ride.
