What do you look for in a vehicle when you’re shopping? Is it comfort, style, functionality, performance, or efficiency? This are questions I ask when friends and family ask me about cars when they are shopping for a new vehicle. On top of those questions I also ask about their budget and/or what they are looking to get back in return for their new car. “What I want back from my car?”
Why You Should Buy a Toyota Hybrid
Lately I have been recommending Toyota’s line of hybrid vehicles. I feel that Hybrid cars are generally priced slightly higher than their gasoline-powered counterparts. The extra effort necessary to create the technology that combines both gas and electric power makes them more expensive. However, many automakers are pushing to produce more affordable hybrids for drivers looking to make the jump from straight gasoline.
Toyota hybrids are designed to create harmony between man, nature and machine.
The 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid is one of my favorite and offers a choice of Sport, ECO and EV Modes. At the same time, it has an EPA-estimated 40 mpg combined and carries a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle emission rating.

3 Reason Why You Should Buy a Hybrid
The Commuter – A hybrid car will let you save 30-70% of your fuel cost compared to its gasoline counterpart. The range is wide because it varies from model to model as well as your driving style and route. You can expect to save more if most of your commute is intra-city and involves traffic jams.
Do Your Part – Hybrids produce lower carbon emissions than their gasoline counterparts. According to studies, hybrids just produce 10% of smog-forming pollutants, and 50% of the carbon dioxide emission of a traditional gasoline car.
Rebates – If you need any more motivation, the US government has given tax credits upto $7,500 on the purchase of plug in hybrid cars. However it is only applicable on the first 200,000 vehicles produced by each manufacturer so you need to hurry if you want to avail the discount.
