If you were to purchase a brand new car, would you buy a typical gas powered car, or a hybrid/electric car?

I would love if my Durango came as a hybrid (this exact model and year).

Definitely electric. Last year we bought a a Chevy Volt which is a hybrid that has 53 electric miles before switching to gas. So far its been 14 months and we still haven’t used up a whole tank of gas. It’s super quiet and zippy in traffic.

One of my teachers has that car. It's funny, he used the adjective "zippy" to describe it as well lol

Zippy makes sense. Meaning really quick at low speeds. These cars are go from 0 to 30 in 2.2 seconds. Then, still good, but not so much. It takes 7.1 sec to reach 60.

Had a hybrid. They do not haul a trailer.

Im gonna be commuting about an hour a day when I get out of college. I may start thinking about hybrid

Hard to say since I recently bought two new cars, one of each.

Gas. I like the fundamentals or potential of electric-powered cars better, but there hasn’t yet been a useful or practical implementation.

But I would never buy a new vehicle

Not many hybrid/electric full sized trucks on the market.

If money was no object I’d buy a Tesla model X.

We’ve had a couple hybrids, they were both great. We are hoping our next car will be full electric. We are eyeballing the next gen Leaf. It’s supposed to have a 150 mile range.

I’ll take the hybrid. Electrics are not quite ready yet.

I have a reservation for a Tesla Model 3

me too but might buy an S instead of waiting

11/07/17 7:57 pm

It’s not so bad, I got my reservation the first day, figure I must be #100,000(ish) or so. At the current prod rate if 120/month, I only have 69 years to wait...😀

haha - my delivery is slated as late 2018 but with the delays i expect that to slip. I’d want the AWD version and they aren’t scheduled to start producing until the middle of next year.

My diesel has a 650 mile range at 30 mpg.
I drive an average of 250 miles per day.

That’s a lot of driving

Yes. It’s way too much.

Gas milage matters.

I️ also haul a lot of stuff. I️ could use a bigger vehicle but the Jeep gets me by.

I have a VW Passat TDI, and Audi Q7 TDI. Passat gets amazing mpg for a full sized vehicle (30/42 town/hwy). My wife likes the SUV

Depends on the deal I get. I never complain about higher fuel economy but the price must be right. I love my current truck it's over 3 tons and I consistently get over 20mpg because it's a hybrid. A tank of gas usually lasts me around 2 weeks.

Electric, I forgot the brand but one claims to have a near 300 mile range and charge 90 miles range per hour.
That is finally competitive.

I agree. Electric cars are the future and their ranges are only getting better.
