CR Fact Sheet: Hybrid Vehicles are Cost Effective for Consumers

CR Fact Sheet – Hybrid Cost Savings

Consumer Reports developed a fact sheet with a recent analysis showing that owning a hybrid will save the typical driver over $4,000 over the life of the vehicle, compared to owning a comparable conventional gas-powered vehicle. The average hybrid buyer will save money in the first year of ownership because the fuel savings are greater than the increase in monthly payment.
