Are hybrids any good or should we be waiting on full electric cars

 

As we see more electrical vehicles flood the road as they continue to rise in popularity due to companies such as Tesla being one of the most innovative and popular car manufacturers right now, and with added pressure by governments around the world on diesel and petrol run cars due to their trail of air pollution, fully electrical and hybrid vehicles have never be so popular but are hybrids worth buying before the fully electrical revolution?

 

One of the biggest reasons why people do not buy a hybrid is that many people prefer switching all the way, as the future is all electric and buyers of full electric vehicles would rather buy one car for the future instead of buying a hybrid then a full electric later on, which is two cars. Therefore with the already expensive price of a hybrid, buying two cars is not justified for many fully electric drivers.

 

With a possible law passing in 2040 to ban all diesel cars, with many other countries such as France leading the charge to ban diesel on the roads, many people have already switched to electric which are ever evolving. Due to these laws many manufacturers have planned an electric future, with new lines of car companies showcasing their electric vehicle at the front of their showroom.

There are some features about electric cars that already prove to be better than a hybrid, such as the fact drivers never have to visit a petrol station to top up. This is very cost effective, saving money as when you need to top up, just park next to an electric car charging station. Maintenance is also a lot easier as there is no oil required, also with a fully electric vehicle you do not need an air filter which adds to why electric cars are on the rise.

On the whole to prepare for the future and to join the charge of electric vehicles, many people are switching straight to electric. And with a government push for fully electric vehicles around the world, why only make the half jump to hybrid?
