Our team at Hughes Subaru wants to help you decide if buying an electric or hybrid vehicle will be the right choice for your lifestyle.

Pros and Cons of Buying a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle Near Jefferson, GA

Pros
New Subaru hybrids increase efficiency in a lineup of already incredible models. The list of pros for a Subaru hybrid would include:

  • Increased efficiency, providing up to 90 MPGe in the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid
  • You can charge the battery at home, allowing you to wake up with a fully charged vehicle
  • It’s better for the environment than a traditional powertrain

These are just some of the many benefits of buying an electric vehicle or hybrid in the Monroe, GA region. You can reach out to our team for more details about Subaru hybrids and owning a hybrid!

Cons
Some drivers are still skeptical of buying a model with electric power. While cons would have been easy to list a few years ago, electric powertrains and hybrids have come a long way in a short time. Finding a place to charge was an issue, but the widening network of charging stations has made that easier. Some hybrid models were more expensive than a traditional powertrain, but that gap has been closing, and saving money over time makes up the difference in the initial cost.

Charging still takes longer than fueling at a pump would, but you can conveniently do it from your home. The best way to see what a hybrid can do is to visit our dealership – only a short distance from Watkinsville – to get on a test drive and talk to our team.
