Hyundai Hybrids For Sale at Hyundai Of Auburn in Auburn, AL

Hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) are the future of automotive transportation. While the combustion engine has ruled as king of the automotive domain since its invention over a hundred years ago, shifting priorities and innovations in the field of vehicular technology are causing an increasingly rapid transition to electrified cars. In 2022, Alabama saw an increase of over 100% in registrations of EVs in the state. This number indicates that consumers are becoming increasingly eager to shift away from gasoline-powered cars.

You’ll find an expansive assortment of Hyundai electric and hybrid vehicles designed to suit everyone’s needs and budget. Whether you’re looking for a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or fully electric car, Hyundai has a hatchback, sedan, or SUV waiting for you. At Hyundai of Auburn, we’d like to talk with you about our hybrid and electric lineup.

What’s the Difference Between a Hybrid and a Fully Electric Vehicle?

You’ll find several types of EVs on the market, including hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and fully electric. Hybrids were the first to gain popularity, largely due to their similarity to traditional combustion engines, including the absence of the need to plug in their battery to charge. Instead, the hybrid battery works with a gas-powered engine and recharges through regenerative braking, eliminating the need to connect to an outlet. Plug-in hybrids are similar to the traditional hybrid, but they differ in that their battery is larger and needs to charge by plugging into an outlet.

Fully-electric cars are just that — cars that rely solely on battery power without a combustion engine. They are increasing in popularity every year due to their complete elimination of the need for gas. Drivers need to stop at charging stations to restore power to their vehicles.

What Are the Advantages of Owning an Electric Vehicle?

Many drivers in the Auburn area are intrigued by the idea of owning an EV but are still determining if they’re ready to switch from a traditional gas engine. However, once you look at the benefits of owning a hybrid or electric car, you’ll see that there are many reasons to purchase one of these impressive vehicles.

For starters, if you purchase a hybrid vehicle, you’ll get a car that’s somewhat familiar and comfortable while also taking advantage of the benefits that a battery and motor offer. Hybrid cars get better fuel economy than a traditional combustion engine, which means fewer stops at the gas pumps.

You’ll find that over time, EVs will save you money. Not only is the cost of charging your vehicle less than the cost of fuel, but there are far fewer maintenance costs with fully-electric cars. Their lack of a combustion engine means fewer moving parts and no need for fluid changes or tuneups. Eliminating gasoline also means you’ll no longer emit noxious exhaust fumes and pollute the environment on your daily commute.

If you’ve never driven an EV before, you might also be surprised when you sit behind the wheel. Electric motors produce peak torque from a standstill, meaning you’ll experience faster acceleration without waiting for the build-up you’re used to from a gas engine.

Owning an EV also comes with several federal and state incentives. At the federal level, you may be eligible for up to $7,500 of tax credit if you purchase an eligible new plug-in or fuel cell EV. If you are buying a used plug-in or fuel cell EV, you might qualify for up to $4,000 of tax credit. EV owners in Alabama also benefit from special reduced time-of-use power rates that lessen how much you need to pay to recharge your vehicle at certain times of the day (usually overnight).
