Should I get a hybrid car?
With technology improving our lives in so many areas, cars are no exception. Hybrid cars and electric cars have seen increasing adoption and are the green solution and the future of the auto industry. More and more electric charging points for these cars are available all over Singapore. There are different variations and different motor brands including Toyota, Honda, BMW and Hyundai offering these. There are numerous benefits to owning a hybrid car, and these are as follows.
1. Green Solution, Good for Pocket
To start with, hybrid cars are known to be environment-friendly. This is one of the main reasons why most individuals and organizations are switching to hybrid cars from regular moto vehicles. It also has more efficient gas mileage than traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. This leads to a reduction in fuel consumption and saves more energy. As a result of the reduced emissions, you may enjoy some rebates under the Vehicle Emissions Scheme in Singapore. As part of Budget 2021 in Singapore, you also enjoy road tax rebates.
2. Light Build, Instantaneous Torque
Most hybrid cars are made out of lighter materials. This means that they require less energy to run, ultimately resulting in energy conservation. The engine is also made out of lighter material to help with more power conservation and fewer emissions of fossil fuel.
Conventional cars require some time after you’ve put your foot to the accelerator pedal, to rev up and drive up the torque. With electric motors however, the maximum torque can be attained immediately without needing for the motor to rev up gradually. This means that you can flow well and accordingly with the traffic conditions.
3. Regenerative Braking System
One of the most fascinating things about hybrid cars is their brake mechanism. Every time you apply the brake, the battery actually recharges! The energy that is released when you step on the brake pedal is captured by an internal mechanism, and used to recharge the battery. Isn’t this a beautiful, energy efficient invention?
As we embrace a greener future and take more efforts towards environmental protection, hybrid cars could be that step we personally choose as our contribution to taking care of mother Earth.

My car aircon was not functioning and I was not sure what the cause was. I initially brought my car to the dealer workshop and was told the compressor is down. But the price quoted for the compressor replacement was so high. I then gave ECV Car Service Singapore a call, and the price turned out to be much lower, and quality of service good. Thumbs up! - Joel Tan, Bukit Batok
