Hybrid or Fully Electric?

When contemplating buying a new vehicle, there are some very crucial factors to consider. Among many others, it is essential to choose between a hybrid car or a fully electric vehicle.
A hybrid vehicle is designed to have the ability to use two power sources. This means that an electric generator will combine use with an internal combustion engine to power the vehicle. One thing in a hybrid car is that you can switch from one power source to the other according to the speed needs. The combined use of gasoline engines and electric motors come with various advantages, famous among others is that they save on fuel, easily recharge batteries without the need to plug in, and reduce emissions.
A fully electric vehicle, on the other hand, is powered by electric motors whose energy is stored in rechargeable batteries. These vehicles are better than the hybrids because of several reasons. They cause minimum air pollution because they have almost zero emissions and don't have a tailpipe and they are quieter. Another advantage of these types of be vehicles is tax credits, subsidies, and incentives established by local and national governments in their favor because of their low gas emissions. With an electric car, you won't have to worry about oil prices as all you have to do is recharge at a charging station which you can have at home too.
This all considered, I find hybrid vehicles to be better regarding performance and long distance drives. The fact that their batteries can recharge using the second source of power ensures more extended performance compared to an electric vehicle.
