Buy a hybrid car

Buying a hybrid car is a bit more complicated than buying a conventional car. You have two engines, you must care about more maintenance and you will want a hybrid car that is good for the environment as well. You already know that hybrid cars aren’t so eco-friendly as electric cars, but they are a lot better than petrol powered cars. Hybrid cars are also more expensive than conventional cars. In most cases, they are $3.000 more expensive, but you can get $1.500 of the federal tax break. Also, they require more maintenance so this increase the cost of repairs and mandatory service.
One of the best hybrid cars and one of the oldest is the Toyota Prius. This was the first hybrid car that was available on the market, so all people know about it. You will be able to drive 650 miles before you refill a tank. Also, the electric motor is emissions-free. The Prius offers you a lot of space, enough for 5 people. Also, you can install a gas system, so the fuel consumption will be improved.
Lexus RX 400h is the first luxury hybrid car. It looks like the Lexus RX 330. It has a 3.3 liter, V6, which isn’t very economical, but it is powerful, so people who want a fast hybrid, should choose this Lexus. It has electric motors at the back and at the front so it offers a 4WD.
Ford Escape has a 4 cylinder engine (V6). You can choose from 2.3 to 3-liter engine. It is roomy and safe. Also, it is a bit sporty car. Ford Escape can offer enough space for 5 passengers.
