Vassallo, Helen G.
The question of whether or not a hybrid car is the right choice for a consumer is one that plagues the modern consumer. The advantages and disadvantages in regards to purchasing a hybrid car were examined. Interviews were conducted with hybrid car dealers, professors, and WPI students. Research was done into the history of hybrid cars and how hybrid cars operate. Hybrid cars turned out to be evenly matched with the non-hybrid counterparts when all the facts were examined. The money saved due to the improved fuel economy is offset by the premium paid for a hybrid vehicle.
