The Future Of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles | Subaru SA

The Future of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles

Hybrid and electric cars have been a hot topic in the car world for quite some time now. They’re not your everyday cars, they’re the future of driving. 

The market for electric vehicles is growing exponentially and looks set to continue growing. Electric cars are popular mostly because of their low-emission feature, making them an environmentally friendly choice for the planet. Huge investments have been made into bettering the electric car to be better for everyone and the environment.

Hybrid cars seem to be following the same trend as electric cars. They make use of batteries to power gasoline-driven engines, thus helping improve the state of the fuel economy. Hybrid cars are extremely popular worldwide and are ideal for the climate-conscious driver. 

Let’s talk hybrid and electric cars here, and how they’re reshaping the concept of motoring as we know it. 


What is the Difference Between Hybrid & Electric Vehicles?

The term ‘hybrid’ refers to the combination of two different things. So, a hybrid car has a petrol engine and an electric motor. The motor makes use of the energy that is stored in the battery. If you’ve ever wondered how the battery is charged, well, amazingly through regenerative braking and the petrol engine.

Electric cars on the other hand are fully-electric. Instead of a combustion engine like that of the hybrid vehicle, electric cars have an electric motor. These cars can be plugged in to charge their batteries as they don’t use petrol to operate. 


What is The Future For HEV?

HEV stands for Hybrid Electric Vehicle. HEV’s are the future of cars and the promise of care for our environment. Many consumers will benefit from an HEV car simply because it will be less expensive on the pocket and on fuel, and many are making the switch solely for the planet – fuel emissions have a negative impact on our air and contribute to the majority of CO2 production. Think of it as getting to experience the best of both worlds with less of an effect on our home.


Is the Future of Hybrid & Electric Vehicles Sustainable?

The short answer is yes. The future of hybrid and electric vehicles is sustainable, as fewer natural resources will be used to get people to where they need to be. More and more consumers are looking for convenience and eco-friendly products, which is exactly what both of these cars offer. It is sustainable in that it’s greener, better and more convenient for everyone.


Why Is Government Driving the Reduce Emissions Policy In SA?

The government is driving the Reduce Emissions Policy in South Africa to ensure that as a nation we are doing our part in reducing our collective carbon footprint. By doing this, we can increase the number of jobs for our youth, reduce poverty and see a welcoming rise in our economic growth. When we start off small but do it together, we have the ability to change the world.


How HEVs Will Impact Global Warming?

Hybrid Electric Vehicles could reduce the impact of global warming by a milestone. The current state of our global warming crisis is on the rise, and the switch to HEV vehicles will benefit the planet greatly by lowering carbon emissions and greenhouse gasses.


Why Changing to HEV Will Be Better in The Long Run

Anything that makes us go green is better for the planet. Choosing a car that is less reliant on fuel and energy can benefit us all in the long run.
