Plug-in hybrid cars are the latest breakthrough technology in the automotive industry. Hybrids use two or more types of power—usually an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, the latter of which uses energy stored in batteries. Hybrid vehicles with rechargeable battery-powered engines offer several advantages, including quieter engines, less expensive maintenance, and most importantly, they’re far more earth-friendly.
If you’re an eco-conscious person planning to buy a car, you may want to consider adding hybrid used cars to your list of options..
At MotorCo., we offer a range of plug-in hybrid used cars to complement a greener way of life. Apart from their environmental advantages, there are many benefits associated with owning a used hybrid car. This includes reduced fuel costs and having a higher resale value. Plus, they’re an ideal choice for motorists who aren’t up to converting to pure electric cars just yet but want to try out the lifestyle. Let’s look at our most common models and discover which one works best for you!
The 2017 Toyota Aqua is a full hybrid gasoline-electric subcompact car that boasts higher fuel economy, even when used for city driving. The Aqua is one of the most sought-after hybrid vehicles under Toyota, and it’s easy to see why. Besides being a city-centric vehicle, Toyota Aqua features a weight of just 1,050kg and puts out 111Nm of torque at 4000rpm. It’s quick, accelerates well, and the engine is extremely quiet. Overall, the Toyota Aqua is a popular option in New Zealand and is considered a solid choice for low-cost hybrid cars. It’s a good entry point for drivers who want to go green using a reliable, fuel-efficient city car.
Another strong contender from our lineup of hybrid cars is the 2016 Subaru Impreza. It sports a modern and stylish look, and provides excellent fuel mileage, featuring a 2.0-litre four-cylinder boxer engine with a continuously variable transmission and integrated electric motor. It facilitates both smooth accelerations and low fuel consumption.
Small but super-efficient, the 2015 Honda Fit is the ideal choice for many city drivers. A high-ranking subcompact car, the Fit is well known for its roomy interiors, excellent ride quality, and excellent fuel economy. It features a 130-horsepower, four-cylinder engine, and a continuously variable transmission that’s smooth and responsive. It’s paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission with an electric motor, enabling pure electric driving capabilities that offer a surprising performance.
Collaborating with Toyota, Mazda introduced a petrol-electric hybrid version of its Alexa. The 2015 Mazda Axela features a sleek exterior, and well-designed dashboard equipped with modern conveniences. Best of all, the hybrid Axela offers stellar fuel mileage and automatic transitions between petrol-electric and electric-only modes.
