Working as a driver? Here’s why you should be using a hybrid

When working as a driver for uber, lyft or a similar service, your car is the most important part of your job. Which is why you need something reliable and affordable.  Companies such as Hire-brid offer PCO rental on the best hybrid cars around.

Here are some reasons why you should start driving a hybrid.

They’re good for the environment.

As well as having a petrol engine, hybrid cars are also powered by an electric motor in the car, which doesn’t release harmful green house emissions into the air. This means that you’ll be able to drive around in big cities such as London, care free. Hybrids can also save you money on petrol as you can recharge your battery at home or at a charging point. Some cars even have tech that uses the movement of the wheels to power your generator in the car, giving you free power!

They’re cheap to run

For many people, the thought of having to charge your battery and also fill up your engine with petrol sounds a lot more expensive. However, having the two engines makes more sense and can save you money.

However, if you are to charge your car at home, a full charge would cost you under £4 and if you were to use a public charging space it will cost you nothing! To put that in perspective, the average full tank of petrol is £67.

So if you were to do a few long journeys in one shift, your car would pick whichever power source is better suited and use it. This would allow you to drive for a long time without refueling or charging.
