Life’s A Gas! Gas, Hybrid and Electric Cars [Infographic]

By Brian Wallace | Small Business

These days, green is the new black and more and more drivers are considering a switch to hybrid or electric cars. The word on the street (no pun intended) is that it’s only a matter of time before the gasoline powered cars become the minority.

Already the electric and hybrid cars are surpassing gas engine cars in, not only miles per gallon and sustainability, but also affordability.

For example, the 2013 Nissan Leaf runs with an electric engine and costs from $28,800 to $34,840. This affordable midsize car gets 75 miles on a full charge and has a refuel time of just seven hours at 240 volts. The Leaf is a great alternative to other fuel guzzling cars.

Some insurance companies are taking notice and are offering discounts for owners of hybrid and electric cars. Because owners of hybrid and electric vehicles are typically older and more responsible. The average Nissan Leaf owner is about 45 years old, college educated and has an income of $125,000 a year. The insurance companies offer incentives and lower premiums to these owners.
