Environmental Benefits of Hybrid Cars

July 11, 2013

Some of the controversial issues that have been presented for debating over the last few years include pollution, global warming and increased dependency on non-renewable energy sources. Judging from car industries globally, it is evident that hybrid is the future of cars. This is because of the numerous environmental benefits accomplished by owning or using a hybrid vehicle.

Why Not Electric Cars?

Electric cars depend solely on electricity for functioning. Electric cars were introduced more many decades ago. A major disadvantage of electric cars is that they need frequent recharging. This means that they cannot cover long distances. Recharging needs to be done at an interval of three to six hours. This means that compared to a standard car, an electric car would not give a user enough sense of freedom.

Hybrid cars have countered the shortcomings of electric cars. They are a combination of an electric and a standard car. What propels a hybrid car is its electric motor. A standard engine comes to play when the battery begins to run low or when there is the need for additional power. Therefore, the machinery of a hybrid car is advanced. It has computers whose function is to control all the details of the propelling systems. The latest advancement idea makes it possible for hybrid cars to recharge their own batteries.

Population Health and Nature

There are obvious environmental benefits of hybrid cars. A hybrid car would release fewer emissions compared to a standard car. This is not only beneficial to nature, but also to the general population. Standard cars use fossil fuels that pollute the environment. Inhaling such emissions may cause diseases such as lung illnesses and cancer. In the atmosphere, such emissions may be converted to acid rain, which destroys crops. Therefore using a hybrid car does not only benefit nature, but it also benefits humanity.

It is essential to note that hybrid cars are not the solution to all environmental issues affecting humanity. It is undeniable that the cars are beneficial to the health of people, as well as to the environment. However, these cars will be required to obtain their electricity from some place, and this is the point where a disadvantage arises. Coal plants are the key source of most additional electricity needed for recharging the hybrid cars. The use of coal to produce electricity would obviously lead to increased environmental pollution. Because of this disadvantage, experts have asserted that prior to purchasing a hybrid car, a cost benefit analysis is fundamental.
