Helping the Environment & the Economy:
Models like the Camry Hybrid, Avalon Hybrid, Highlander Hybrid, Prius, Prius c, Prius v, and RAV4 Hybrid burn less fossil fuel by supplementing the engine's power with an electric motor. Reducing the amount of gasoline you use means fewer climate-change-contributing emissions, and it means reducing demand for oil in the automotive sector, which can lower the cost of oil for other uses.
Long-Distance Commuter's Delight:
If you personally relate to Robert Frost's verse, "and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep," you may experience the greatest benefits from switching to a hybrid powertrain. The average hybrid saves most drivers several hundred dollars per year on gas compared with a conventional vehicle, but the more miles you drive, the more impact your vehicle's miles-per-gallon has on savings.
Many drivers who put in long hauls on the highway also appreciate the longer range hybrids boast, and longer intervals between gas station stops.
Incentives for Green Driving:
While the state of Kentucky may not have many incentives for green driving, buying a plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle may qualify you for attractive federal tax credits from the IRS. Likewise, many insurance providers also offer a reduced rate for hybrids.
