Hybrid Cars Come With Own Buying Criteria
Who drives a hybrid? The list includes members of the Hollywood elite (Rob Reiner, Cameron Diaz and Danny DeVito), the who's who of Washington D.C. (Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Kerry) and regular folks across the country. Want to join them? Hybrids have their own criteria, which are crucial to know.
A hybrid (short for hybrid electric vehicle) uses two power sources: a gasoline-powered internal combustion engine and a battery-powered electric motor. The electric motor assists the traditional engine to make the vehicle more fuel-efficient.
Your Hybrid Choices
The most popular, and certainly the most recognizable, hybrid is the Toyota (TM) Prius, which gets a combined 46 miles per gallon and starts at about $22,000. The Honda (HMC) Civic Hybrid runs $23,550, but gets only 42 mpg combined.
