Hybrid vehicles have been commercially available since the late 1990s, and in recent years they’ve become especially popular. The same goes for electric cars. Once seemingly outlandish, electric cars are so similar to the average sedan now that it’s hard to pick them out of a lineup. Similar, that is, with the exception of efficiency. Both hybrid and electric vehicles save you money at the pump (or help you avoid the pump altogether) using innovative powertrain technologies. Cars like the Hyundai Ioniq are just the start of a new type of mobility.
Efficiency. The most obvious reason to get a hybrid or electric car is for the better gas mileage. Not only will you reduce, if not eliminate, harmful emissions, but hybrids and electric cars also save you at the pump. For example, the Ioniq Hybrid gets up to 58 mpg combined.*
Better Batteries. When electric and hybrid cars were first introduced, a lot of the skepticism revolved around battery life and durability. However, modern batteries have come a long way in the past few decades, including the lithium-ion versions you often find under the hood of cars like the Ioniq. Added warranties are offered to provide you with peace of mind, while ranges have drastically extended. The Ioniq Hybrid Blue Model has a range of up to 690 miles,* for instance.
