Gone are the days when the only people who drove hybrids were passionate environmentalists. The benefits of hybrid cars are real, and they’re being recognized by mainstream drivers throughout the Detroit area.

Hybrid vs. Gas Cars

Driving a hybrid vehicle delivers some big advantages:

Fuel Cost Savings

With their hyper-efficient fuel economy, hybrid vehicles achieve 40-50 MPG on average. This translates to way fewer trips to the gas pump and a savings of hundreds of dollars a year.

Discounted Car Insurance

You may be surprised to discover that car insurance is cheaper for a hybrid vehicle – up to 10 percent. Most car insurance companies offer a discount just for owning a hybrid.

Free Access to HOV Lanes

Many states offer free HOV access to hybrid vehicle owners, and that’s enough of an incentive to attract buyers. Who doesn’t want to avoid traffic?

Tax Credits

You also might qualify for income tax credits, thanks to purchasing a hybrid vehicle. Check with your accountant for specifics.
