Why drive a hybrid rental car?

Why drive a hybrid rental car?

The decision whether or not to drive a hybrid car is usually made when you purchase a new (lease) car. These days, you can also choose eco-friendly options when renting a car. Most car rental agents have included eco-friendly vehicles in their standard fleet.

Advantages of a hybrid rental car

A hybrid or eco-friendly car emits less CO2. Thanks to a reduced emission of harmful substances, the hybrid car makes a positive contribution to the environment and the climate.

But there are more advantages to driving a hybrid car, such as your contribution to a green and environmentally-friendly image and lower fuel costs. By charging your motor you will need to fuel up less often and that saves money.

Disadvantages to driving a hybrid rental car

Driving a hybrid rental car does have some disadvantages too, of course. Namely, you can only drive a limited number of electric kilometres. As soon as the battery runs out, the car will continue to run on gasoline. That's why it's always a good idea to fully charge your car before driving. This way, you can drive the maximum number of kilometres.

Another disadvantage is that it's not possible to charge a hybrid car everywhere.
Also, an electric motor makes very little noise and this creates a safety issue. Other road users often don't hear the car approaching.
