Hybrid vs. Electric: Which is Right for You?

2022 Chevy Bolt Electric

If you are looking to ditch your traditional gas-powered vehicle in favor of a hybrid or electric model, then you will want to consider our dealership at Larry Puckett Chevrolet near Montgomery. Let’s break down the difference between the hybrid cars vs. electric cars today, so that you can make an educated decision at the end of the day.



Hybrid Cars vs. Electric Cars

In the coming sections, we’ll dive into the respective benefits of hybrid vs. electric cars. Let’s break down the very basic core tenets and traits of both the hybrid and electric vehicles:

Hybrid Cars

Technically, hybrid vehicles still use a gas-powered engine. However, when you use a hybrid vehicle, you are also using electric energy alongside your gas engine. Accompanying your gas engine is a secondary electric motor that works together to provide you power on the Wetumpka roads, allowing for significant increases in gas mileage. The battery for an electric car self-charges so that you never need to plug your vehicle in to a power source.

Electric Cars

If you are choosing an electric vehicle (an EV for short), then you can know that there is no engine, only a battery and an electric motor. The battery in an EV is much larger than a hybrid model because it plays a more significant role in making your vehicle drive. Electric vehicles can be plugged in at home, or can be charged at a public charging station. Depending on how much charge the vehicle has, the mileage range will depend on the model and make of your vehicle.
