Hybrids Still Preferred Over Plug-In Electric Vehicles

While many consumers are worried about global warming (though many claim it doesn’t exist) and are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, the idea of a fully electric, plug-in vehicle still scares them a little. Mainly its because of the range, which on most electric vehicles is currently at aorund 100 miles per eight-hour charge. This is despite the fact that most people only use about half that per their daily commute – in fact, recent tests in Britain show that the daily commute for most people is just 23 miles. But that doesn’t matter, because people don’t want to be stranded in the middle of nowhere without fuel.

That’s why hybrids are getting all the attention right now. Auto transport companies have seen a major increase in the number of hybrids being shipped, because most hybrids get at least 40 miles per gallon, while other get upwards of 50 miles per gallon. This is why people like them. They’re used to gasoline and like it, despite it costing over $3.00 per gallon in most places. But plug-ins really are the wave of the future, so if I were you I would start looking around, because they’re only going to sell more and get better.
