Will Consumers Go Hybrid With Their Cars?

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Go-Reviews recently investigated hybrid cars to update how well these fuel efficient, low emission cars are being perceived by the market, and more so whether the market is ready to pay the premium to buy one.

The good news is that the technology being integrated into hybrid cars is leading edge, and is being rolled out into conventional cars also. This means that greater fuel efficiency and lower carbon emissions are working their way into standard car manufacturing processes.

But the sad news is, that whilst hybrid cars remain signficantly more expensive, there is some hesitation in the market. This is a totally unscientific claim, but the fuel saving economics just don’t stack up enough to sway the cost conscious consumer to support the planet. In most cases, it takes 12-14 years to get payback on the addtional cost.
