Why not own a fuel-efficient hybrid car?

When my current car was purchased about 5 years ago, I thought it had it all. It’s a Toyota Camry Altise and a big step up from the 30-year-old Datsun 200C, which, when bought new in 1981, had state-of-the-art equipment and was like a Rolls Royce to drive. Japanese manufacturers have not spared anything on this. As an older person, Altise is perfect for me because it also has exactly what I need for local shopping and solo trips on the highway.

The problem with today’s products, whether it’s cars or something else, is that the thing you buy today quickly becomes obsolete because of something better tomorrow. This is how I felt when my niece drove me in her Toyota Hybrid.

Riding in this car left me somewhat speechless. Noise levels are practically zero when driving and when there is absolutely nothing to be heard. I think it’s cut off I made a comment about it. That’s when I explained about the battery.

While you drive it, the battery recharges and is always a way to start the car before the gas side of it starts. The ride in it is nice and the interior of the car has more functional gadgets, including an outside temperature display. My immediate thought was I want one but my finances are somewhat limited so it will take some time to make it happen.

But even before that idea fades away in my head, the news is for all-electric cars, which are now coming onto the market in larger quantities. The batteries in these devices are not recharged while the vehicle is being driven but service stations now provide electrical sockets for this purpose.

But, wait there, something new is now being made to surpass even those. The self-driving car is rolling off the starting blocks and at least one manufacturer is already taking orders. Where and when will we get to the car to meet all the demands? Self-driving buses are now being tested to run around the Sydney show floor within six months.

Self-driving trains will also be used on the new railway between Sydney and the North Western Suburbs within two years. amazing! What a time to decide on a new car, or even a used car for that matter. The Australian government has already announced that by 2030 no petrol cars will be sold here and probably soon after they won’t be registered.

This is definitely a change in car decision and buying times. While I crave a hybrid now, it’s already old hat and outdated for the future. In the meantime, it should be the most fuel-efficient car on the road today.
