London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 04, 2008 -- American Car Imports of London specialise in importing the latest generation of American vehicle â The Hybrid.
Satisfied customers have already taken delivery of the new 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid, a compact SUV that utilises the new technology. Hybrid electric vehicles sound as though they are futuristic vehicles. However, all the major manufacturers either have such vehicles in production or at the planning stage with a view to an imminent launch onto the market.
Hybrid vehicles or HEV's, (Hybrid Electric Vehicles to give them their full name), combine the best features of traditional petrol driven cars and electric cars to improve fuel consumption and environmental performance without sacrificing any of the convenience or power of a conventional vehicle.
- Unlike electric cars, Hybrid cars do not need to be plugged in. - With the additional power provided by the batteries, as smaller petrol engine can be used without compromising the performance or power of the vehicle. - The new technology usually features an âidle offâ feature, in stationary traffic the engine cuts out and re-starts automatically once you are on the move again, thereby saving even more fuel.
With the Ford Escape Hybrid already successfully on the market the other major manufacturers are following:-
Dodge with the Durango Hybrid and GM with the Tahoe, Suburban and Silverado and the Cadillac Escalade all due as 2009 models.
