Hybrid cars; you’re aware they exist...there are plenty of Priuses on the road today, and you know they get good gas mileage. What you may not realize, however, is that hybrid cars are moving away from being a niche market, and into becoming the norm. The Prius enjoyed record sales in 2017, and most automakers are unveiling plans for not one or two, but several new hybrid vehicles each. In Norway, hybrid vehicle sales have actually surpassed conventional vehicle sales, indicating that people are beginning to view hybrids as better alternatives to the car of the past, and also proving that hybrid cars are a viable replacement for vehicles that run solely on gasoline. As technology improves, batteries last longer and become more efficient, and various cars, trucks, and SUVs of all shapes and sizes are offered with hybrid options, it seems they are certainly here to stay. The bottom line is, you can expect to see a variety of new hybrids in your hometown, soon.
