Hybrid cars are still very much on the motoring scene, despite the influx of electric car registrations into the market place.

But at the moment, Hybrid car sales and leases are still very popular and with more and more manufacturers releasing their models into the market place, there is more choice than ever.

We look at the advantages and disadvantages of the Hybrid Car:

Advantages to a Hybrid Car:

Whilst generally cheaper than electric cars, the Hybrid car can still give you the advantages depending on the model chosen, in particular those who can get away with using the range of a plugin hybrid for their daily commute.

Range anxiety can get the best of all of us, in particular those who drive pure electric cars, but the benefit of being able to top the car up with fuel and use the old fashion engine to get around, is a plus for many of us.

Hybrid cars recharge as you drive or even brake, at the moment the lack of electric charging points in the UK, make the Hybrid cars look extremely attractive to most.

Disadvantages to a Hybrid Car:

You miss out on quite a few of the Government incentives by purchasing a hybrid car over an electric car.

They aren’t really that environmentally friendly and in real world costs, sometimes a hybrid car can work out more expensive to own and run as a conventional diesel or petrol equivalent.

A hybrid can require a little bit more complicated maintenance due to the onboard electrics and mechanics that make up a hybrid car. The engine will also require servicing as would a traditional fossil fuel engine.
