Hybrid cars fascinate!
This is an universal truth that cannot be disputed by anyone, especially since hybrids have a complex design that allow you to enjoy the same luxury and price, but adding extra features.
However, there are some myths that must be taken into consideration when deciding to buy such car. We have made a “top 3 myths” that hopefully will shade a little light on some of the questions you might have.
1. Hybrids are slow. Far from being true, most hybrids can be as fast as an usual car, reaching even 206.2 horsepower at 6,000 rpm (see the case of Kia Optima Hybrid). So definitely, not slow!
2. Their battery needs to be replaced. Not exactly, since hybrids battery’s are designed to last at least 10 years or 150,000 miles. And if you use an advanced lithium polymer battery, its long lasting performance is guaranteed.
3. Charging a hybrid is hard. No kiddin’. If we take the example of Kia Optima Hybrid you will realize that this recharges as you drive it. Due to the kinetic energy which is converted into electricity, your car has a healthy stash of power, without having to stop and charge it every 4 hours.
So, do you want to buy a hybrid?
