When it's time to purchase a new car, most drivers would agree that one quality, in particular, is what sets one model apart from another – efficiency. Buying an efficient vehicle can help drivers save money each year and preserve our planet's natural resources. People all over Portland and the surrounding area have switched to driving a hybrid – one of the most efficient types of car on the market. Is it time for you to make the change, too?

3 Reasons to Own a Hybrid

  1. They're Fuel-Efficient

If you're tired of heading to the gas pump, it's time to switch to a Hyundai hybrid model. Most non-hybrid vehicles currently on the market can reach up to 25-39-miles-per-gallon. In comparison, the Hyundai Sonata sedan can achieve 54-miles-per-gallon*, outperforming models that rely only on fuel. The Hyundai Ioniq, a hybrid hatchback, can get around 59-miles-per-gallon, making it one of the highest-ranking cars when it comes to fuel-efficiency**. In normal driving conditions, you could travel from Salem to Vancouver, WA in the Hyundai Ioniq and use less than one tank of gas!

  1. They Help Our Planet

Because your vehicle gets more miles-per-gallon, you will end up purchasing less gasoline over time than drivers of non-hybrid models. This helps to preserve our planet's nonrenewable natural resources, like oil. Additionally, hybrid cars produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than other models. This helps to improve air quality across the globe and can be especially helpful in reducing smog in heavily-trafficked areas like Portland.

  1. You May Receive a Federal Tax Credit

Plug-in hybrid vehicles rely mainly on their electric motor for power, whereas standard hybrid vehicles receive power simultaneously from a gasoline engine and an electric motor. If you opt to purchase one of these models, such as the Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in, you might be eligible for a federal tax credit***. Speak with a member of our Finance Team to determine if your purchase at Dick's Hillsboro Hyundai qualifies for this savings opportunity.
