Because the electric motor replaces some of the work done by a traditional engine and some hybrids can run as electric vehicles at low speeds, hybrids are ideal vehicles for individuals who travel predominantly in the city under stop and go conditions.
Anyone interested in reducing their fuel consumption, their emissions and impact on the environment and the price they pay at the pumps may find hybrids to be the answer. And the good news is hybrids are also making the grade with Natural Resources Canada in its annual rating of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in Canada.
In fact, over the past several years, hybrids have been winning the annual EnerGuide Awards for a variety of different vehicle classes.
