Hybrid Cars – Why Do We Have Them?

Hybrid cars and electric cars will ultimately help the countryMy brother is an avowed “tree hugger.” No joke he is as green as green can be. I can remember a debate I had with him a little over 8-years ago about fuel cell cars and hydrogen.  His whole premise was that, “They’re keeping the fuel cell vehicle from us, we could have them right now if it weren’t for them.” I responded to his claim by saying, “The concept of a fuel cell car is great, but there is no infrastructure in place for it and there won’t be for a long time. What do you do when it breaks?  That’s why we have hybrid cars and all electric.” And I continued, “Who are these ‘They’s’ you keep referring to?”

Koons carries several different manufactures and many of them have hybrid vehicles, stop by any of our showrooms to get more information on them and take one for a test drive today

For the record I am over-dramatizing our discussion, but in all fairness I am trying to make a point, and the discussion did happen but it wasn’t so much of a debate as it was just a conversation.  That said, he had no answer on the infrastructure issue, but as for “the They’s”? That was “the man, man!”  Whoever that is…

Hybrid vehicles answer the infrastructure questions very nicely for many different reasons not the least of which is, availability.  I’ll explain, so you’re driving down the street in your bright shiny new fuel cell car, when suddenly it has an issue with the “quevo-disc” (for you Seinfeld lovers you know what that is) and you need to bring it in to fix it, but alas the nearest technician is a 5-hour drive away and parts are going to take sometime to get there as well, now what do you do? You wait, that’s what you do.  You wait for the infrastructure to catch up with the technical advancement that is the fuel cell.  You see, although we could have fuel cell cars right now they’re a technology that outpaced reality.  No one knows how to care for them, hydrogen is not readily available and it’s expensive to manufacture, and parts are based on an entirely new type of engine so they aren’t readily available or warehoused and stocked around the country.

Some background:
Hybrid cars have both a standard gasoline engine and an electric engine in them.  This is the blending of two worlds; the gas engine is great for quick starts and long hauls at highway speeds.  The electric engine is great for short trips and slow starts.  Both hybrid cars and all electric are  perfect for around town driving, and with hybrids the act of driving recharges the batteries.  For those of you with all electric cars, charging stations are being built in major cities around the nation so refueling them is getting easier as well.  The other good thing about hybrids and electrics is that if something goes wrong with either the gas or electric engines, their parts are so ubiquitous and technicians are so abundant that you can get your car fixed by just about anyone.  In hybrids they have the added benefit that if the electric engine has an issue it may take a bit of doing to get it fixed but you at least can get the car to the tech that is 5 miles away for a look see by using just the gas engine.  Oh! and the parts needed to fix the gas engine are available at every major auto parts store in the country.

A hybrid vehicle is the perfect tool for the job right now, that job being, getting us from total reliance on the internal combustion engine to an all-electric vehicle dominated economy.  They are referred to as a “Bridge Technology,” as in they bridge us between those two different states, mostly what it does in this case, is allow the realities of the world to catch up with the pace of technology.  We all know that gas powered vehicles are here to stay and they will have their place along side hybrid cars, all electric, clean diesel & biodiesel but for now you have a choice and they are readily available.

Koons carries several different manufactures and many of them have hybrid vehicles, stop by any of our showrooms to get more information on them and take one for a test drive today, Mother Nature will thank you for it. ♛
