Hybrid is Hot when Oil is on Track to $200

Posted by Charles | April 30, 2008 .

I read an article this weekend on LA Time. It talked about it’s realistic now to see the oil price reach to $200 a barrel soon. Hybrid Cars and their makers are very smart to have such technologies ready for such energy market environment.

Most of the Hybrid Vehicles these days operate in a self sufficient way. Meaning that the on-board computer will handle the charge/use of the electric motor to assist the driving. The major functions of the hybrid engine are to shutdown the gas engine when at stop and only use the electric motor when gliding. The benefit of this approach is that you drive a hybrid just like a regular car and you park it the same way at night as well. All the greenish result and saving in gas are transparent to the hybrid car owners.

Talking about saving, a Hybrid Car can really save a good amount of money for people commute in long distance everyday, especially for those who live in such places of southern California. With a hybrid card and doing car pooling, it’ll be the best strategy to battle in the $200-a-barrel age.

Hybrids are not the final solutions though. When the plug-able hybrids coming to market next year that’ll be some changes on how we operate the cars, at least for parking overnight. Don’t forgot plug it in. But if you charge your cell phone every night, you are ready.

Beyond Hybrids, are there full electric cars or fuel cell cars at the horizon? Yes, but but we have to wait.
