5 Benefits of Hybrid Vehicles

At Savage Hybrid Shop, we provide quality service for your vehicle whether it is a domestic, import, car, truck, electric or hybrid.

Although we service all of these vehicles, we do extensive work on hybrid vehicles. If you need a Toyota Prius hybrid battery replacement in Wilmington, DE, you can turn to us. We believe that there are five particular advantages to owning a hybrid.

Savings on Fuel

If you already own a vehicle, you have already reaped the benefit of cheaper fuel costs. For example, the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid has an outstanding fuel economy of 46 miles per gallon for highway driving and 47 for city. These vehicles reduce your trip to the gas pump and keep more money in your pocket.


Hybrid cars are better for the environment as their reduced gasoline intake results in lower carbon dioxide emissions and less exhaust. With more and more people driving hybrid cars, this reduces the general population’s reliance on fuel and its damaging effects on the earth.

Tax Incentives

Some hybrid vehicles are eligible for tax incentives. The U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005 started a program where people who purchased hybrid electric vehicles received a tax credit. It was limited to 60,000 vehicles per manufactures over various model years. Once that program ended, the government started a new program on Jan. 1, 2010. This new program more than doubled the tax credit, making it up to $7,500, and focused more on plug-in vehicles.

High Resale Value

Obviously, your car has to be in good condition, but selling a hybrid vehicle can yield a high resale value. Finding a used hybrid vehicle is tougher than finding a regular gas-only car. These vehicles also are reliable and will help a used car buyer save more in the long run.

Specialized Technicians

Whether it’s electrical work, computer diagnostics or a Prius battery replacement for Dover, DE drivers, working on a hybrid vehicle takes specialized training. Technicians who work on these vehicles must be up to date with the latest technology and trends. Our service professionals have in-house exercises every month with an instructor to provide the best hybrid car repair.
