Automobiles have always been pretty high in demand in every country and all kinds of conditions due to which the automobile market is one of the biggest markets in the world. These days, consumers are more inclined towards hybrid cars because they are economical in terms of fuel combustion. Hybrid cars have an electric motor that operates only on battery and turns off when the car reaches a certain speed, switching over to the computerised controller. As the most gas is consumed when you start your vehicle and move it. A hybrid car has the motor to run and provide the power needed at this critical junction. It keeps the engine of the car off until it reaches a certain speed or during a traffic jam.
In Pakistan, hybrid cars are preferred by many but due to their higher prices, people stick with the traditional cars. It’s going to take a while for electric cars to reach Pakistan, until then, hybrid cars are the best option to save the environment. Hybrid cars are best suitable to drive in the major cities where there are problems of traffic jams and bad road conditions.
