1. They're as comfortable, easy and safe to drive as conventional gasoline-powered cars

    The days of sluggish hybrid acceleration are gone. With improved performance and handling, today's hybrids offer stiff competition to traditional vehicles. Hybrids are also jam-packed with safety features just like their conventional counterparts. And you don't have to take special care of your hybrid; regenerative braking eliminates the need to plug in for battery charging.
  2. Hybrids help to save money on gas.

    With gas prices expected to soar this summer, more consumers are putting greater emphasis on fuel efficiency. And nothing beats a hybrid for fuel efficiency. For instance, the 2012 Toyota Prius is rated at 51 mpg city/48 mpg highway. And many hybrids can travel five or six hundred miles between fill-ups, cutting your visits to the gas station in half. If you drive 1,000 miles each month and your current car gets 20 miles per gallon, driving a hybrid could save 60 percent at the pump. At five bucks a gallon, that's a potential savings of $150 a month or $1,800 each year.
  3. The wide variety of models offers something for everyone

    Whether you're looking for a sedan, pickup truck, luxury vehicle, performance sports car or even a large hybrid SUV with 3rd row seating there's a hybrid version that may suit your needs.
  4. Up-front, hybrid cars don't cost much more than similarly-equipped conventional cars

    When looking at the base MSRP, it's easy to jump to the conclusion that hybrids cost oodles more than gas-powered cars. But a true comparison requires comparing apples to apples – in this case, comparing a hybrid car and a conventional car with similar equipment and specifications. A little research reveals that many hybrids cost just a little more than conventional cars; by saving money at the gas pump, you'll break even in just a few short years. And if you keep driving the hybrid beyond that point, you'll actually come out ahead in the long run.
  5. You'll do your part to preserve the environment.

    Thanks to current technologies, most hybrid vehicles create roughly up to 90 percent less toxic emissions than their brand-new conventional counterparts. The difference in emissions rises substantially for older cars.
  6. They are safer compared to gas-only cars

    A recent report has shown that passenger of hybrid vehicles have about 25% less chances to get injured during a crash. So, hybrid vehicles are not only "greener" but also safer.
