2011 Hybrid Car Buyers Guide Helps Drivers Explore Cleaner Options
If you’re finding it hard to keep up with all the new hybrid cars rolling off the assembly lines, Hybrid Kingdom has just what you need to keep things straight in the new year.
The website, which offers an impressive collection of hybrid-related resources as well a newsletter, has published the 2011 Hybrid Car Buyers Guide to help consumers make better informed decisions about hybrid-electric vehicles.
“There are an overwhelming number of websites offering advice about eco-friendly cars,” says Jeff Carey, Director of Marketing at Hybrid Kingdom. “Customers were asking us for an easier way to compare all the hybrid makes and models in one place. Our editors brought it all together and developed a resource that people can read online, download or print.”
The recently updated Hybrid Guide includes information on every new hybrid car, truck and SUV available for purchase today. These include the Toyota Prius, as well as several newcomers such as the hybrid Lincoln MKZ and Volkswagen Touareg hybrid sport utility vehicle.
All 27 hybrid vehicles get their own featured page in the new guide. Each vehicle profile includes an executive review, photos, EPA gas mileage estimates and pricing options. Also included are links to expert reviews, manufacturers and other online resources.
Sales of hybrid vehicles reached an all-time high in 2008 when gas prices in the U.S. topped $4 per gallon, and in some states were closer to $6. That year over 300,000 hybrids were sold. Now, with crude oil and gasoline prices again on the rise, consumer interest in fuel-efficient vehicles is growing again.
