Hybrid Cars up to 90 Percent less Pollution

December 21st, 2005

Hybrid Cars up to 90 Percent less Pollution

Honda Insight Hybrid Car

Hybrid cars still have better fuel mileage than a regular gas powered car.  The miles-per-gallon as reported by Consumers Report says that you can expect around 35 miles per gallon versus the sticker that claims 60 miles per gallon. An SUV will use around 15 20 miles per gallon.

The interesting thing to remember about Hybrid cars is that they are up to 90 percent more efficient on emissions.  That adds up to a lot of pollution.  A website called travelmatters.org has a calculator to figure out how much emissions your vehicle is putting out.  It was very interesting to see the difference in the amount of emissions of a large family vehicle verses a hybrid car.  This website offers a lot of insight into the pollution factor of driving a vehicle.

 

Industry is the largest contributor of greenhouse gases with transportation being the second largest source.  The EPA reported that in 1997 a whopping 31 percent of carbon dioxide (460.4 million metric tons of carbon) came from fossil fuel combustion in the United States.

The emissions of CO2 have lead many scientists to believe that this is the cause for global warming.  Hopefully, with the tax break incentives offered for purchasing hybrid cars they will not loose their popularity.  These vehicles have a lot to offer to the environment.  As the manufacturing of these cars increase, the price should start to equal the cost of a regular car in the years to come.
