The demand for hybrid cars in Orlando is growing rapidly. With Toyota Hybrid sales topping 4 million worldwide in April, 2012, it is clear to see that is correct.

Most people associate the term “hybrid” with better gas mileage and lower emissions. Many may ask why not purchase a conventional car or a full electric car. The benefits of a Hybrid are the obvious lower emissions and greater fuel efficiency, however, there are many more. Using hybrid cars instead of conventional cars can help decrease our dependence on imported petroleum and increase energy security. In addition to those benefits Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive System can actually charges on its own. That process occurs during breaking when the energy from the stop is actually converted into energy for the cars battery pack. The Plug-in has that same ability but needs to be charged regularly to perform correctly.
