Hybrid Cars To Offer 100 MPG In 2011

toyota-electric-solarThe new Hybrid Cars coming to market are meeting new government standards for carbon emissions and fuel economy. Some of the new hybrid cars already offer up to 50 MPG, but that’s nothing in comparison to what will happen in 2011. Automakers are making serious advancements under the hood that will make hybrid cars in 2010 appear too conventional.

For example, the Toyota Prius can offer consumers a 50 MPG rating in combined fuel economy. The automobile offers better mileage with enhanced performance in comparison to current hybrids. The vehicle outputs ultra-low emissions and the ride is very comforting.

The electric motor is called a permanent magnet synchronous motor which can out put 80 horsepower with a 153 lb-ft torque. The Hybrid system net outputs 134 horsepower. The hybrid battery pack is nickel-metal hydride.

The vehicle also requires no belts under the hood for better fuel economy and less potential maintenance. This is one of the reasons why this is an eco-friendly car. The driver can also receive feedback, from the multi-information display panel, which can provide help to acquire economical driving habits.

Hybrids can save consumers potential maintenance costs involved with belt replacements. The automobiles seem to offer 3 tiers of savings. First, you save money on gas, then you save money on future maintenance costs and repairs, and you get a tax credit for purchasing a new hybrid car.

The more you look into the hybrid alternative fuel solution, the more the savings keep adding up. Why buy a traditional gas guzzling vehicle when gas prices are rising again?

During the past 12 months or so, it seemed unlikely that an automaker could provide a 50 MPG rating on any automobile. It suddenly happened, and then we witnessed the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid achieve more than 1,400 miles of travel on a single tank. This marks the equivalent of 80 miles per gallon.

The automakers truly deserve credit for their breakthroughs in green technology and better fuel economy. While Chevrolet is betting everything on its Chevy Volt, other car manufacturers appear to be a step ahead. Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Ford are delivering what consumers what today, but it seems like General Motors Corp is in a do-or-die situation.

GM claims that the Chevrolet Volt can drive up to 100 MPG on a single tank of gas. It’s not known what percentage of that is electric power, or the size of the tank. Even so, using fuel to power vehicles will be something of the past as the hybrid market matures.
