Electric cars can slash our fuel bills to pennies and cut the cost of car ownership. For most of us that’s good thing, but some people don’t mind playing a premium for something a little flashier. For some time, fuel efficient hybrid cars were small and boxy, and were,t very accommodating for long distance trips. As technology has progressed, hybrid electric cars have pretty much been perfected, some of them out performing traditional combustion engine vehicles as far road legal vehicle are concerned. Their goal is to bring the technology to a point where hybrid electric vehicles are just as affordable to the working man as a Dodge Neon. Some people want to advertise the fact they have money to burn. It’s the very basis of a capitalist Society. Think about it: without that innate desire to rub our success in our neighbor’s face, designer labels just would’t be a thing.
