A Hybrid vs. Electric Car Comparison

Close Up Of Hand Holding Power Cable For electric car

 

Are you having your own internal hybrid cars vs. electric cars debate? A lot of Bedford drivers are switching to electrified vehicles as gas prices continue to rise, but many are daunted when presented with these options. We compare the two below for you to explain the differences. In our comparison of hybrid vs. electric cars, pros and cons of each are considered, as well as factors such as gas mileage, cost, and charging.

 

 

Hybrid Cars vs. Electric Cars: Gas Mileage

You will definitely be making fewer stops at Beachwood gas stations with a hybrid car than you would with a conventional gas-powered car, since the electric motor in a hybrid aids the engine so that less gas is used. However, all-electric cars do not have a gas engine, so they use no gas at all.

Hybrid Cars vs. Electric Cars: Charging

If you’re like most Mayfield drivers, you have a busy schedule. But, if you get an electric vehicle, you will need to make time to charge it. Do hybrid cars need to be charged? Some do. Any car that is designated as a “plug-in” hybrid will function best when they are charged from time to time, whereas other hybrids are charged by the gas engine and are never plugged in.

Hybrid vs. Electric Car: Cost

Hybrid vehicles, like the Mercedes-Benz GLE Hybrid SUV, generally have a lower sticker price than electric cars. Electric vehicles, like the EQS, require very little maintenance—meaning you’ll never have to pay for oil replacement service. And, of course, you’ll never have to fill up the gas tank in an electric car.

Hybrid vs. Electric Cars: Pros and Cons

If you’re comparing hybrid vs. electric cars, the pros and cons of each option are as follows:

Hybrid Cars

  • Pros: better gas mileage than conventional gas engines, regular hybrids don’t need to be plugged in, lower sticker price than electric cars
  • Cons: still use some gas, require the same maintenance as conventional gas engines

Electric Cars

  • Pros: zero trips to the gas station, very little maintenance
  • Cons: need to be charged from time to time, higher sticker price than hybrids
