When you shop for used cars as well as new Audi vehicles at Audi Petoskey, you might notice the hybrid and electric cars that are available. As more and more vehicles are made with sustainability in mind, there are more hybrid and electric options than ever. So how are hybrid and electric cars different, and which type of vehicle is right for you? Here is what you need to know about the hybrid and electric vehicles available at Audi Petoskey.

Hybrid and Electric Vehicles: What's the Difference?

Hybrid vehicles use both an electric motor and a gasoline engine to run. Some hybrid vehicles are primarily gasoline-powered and use the electric motor to improve fuel economy. Others, such as plug-in hybrid vehicles, have electric motors powerful enough to drive the vehicle on their own for a short distance, but they need gasoline to run effectively.

Electric vehicles don't use gasoline or any other fuel at all. They have zero tailpipe emissions, and run entirely on electricity. You never have to bring an electric car to the gas station. Instead, you can charge them from home in Traverse City or bring them to a charging station.

Should I Get a Hybrid or an Electric Car?

It depends on what better suits your needs. Hybrid vehicles are great for drivers who want a more sustainable vehicle with a great fuel economy, but who aren't sure about having to charge their vehicle regularly for it to work. Electric cars are perfect for drivers who don't mind taking their vehicle to charging stations or charging their vehicle from home.
