Are Hybrid Cars Still Popular?

Ever since the introduction of pure electric cars, more people are beginning to wonder if hybrid vehicles are the way forward. While some people are adamant that a pure-electric car is the gateway to an electric future, others have convinced themselves that a hybrid car is still a great option. As a result, there is one crucial question that must be answered, are hybrid cars still popular?

At the moment, based on figures released by Go Ultra Low, more than 35,000 plug-in cars were sold in the UK in 2017 which is a 15% rise from 2016. This surge in hybrid sales is an indication of the massive consumer appetite for hybrid cars. Therefore, the behavior of the data on hybrid sales suggest that hybrid cars are indeed still popular.

While most hybrid and electric-powered cars carry a substantial premium price, you can get under £30,000. Here are some hybrid cars that will give you the best bang for your pound in 2018.

Toyota RAV4 Hybrid from £27,450

The Toyota RAV hybrid is a solid machine that features a 2.5 liter Hybrid Synergy Drive, and many advanced technologies that makes it stand from the crowd.

Hyundai Sonata Hybrid from £19,995

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a well thought out vehicle that makes use of a Lithium-ion battery and a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine.

So, in your opinion, are hybrid cars still popular?
