CAA's new vehicle technologies eBook, puts gas, hybrid and electric vehicles side-by-side.
Deciding which new vehicle to buy is about to get a lot more complex. Along with choosing a make, model and colour, you’re also going to have to decide if you want your vehicle to run on gas, electricity—or both.
According to a recent study conducted by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), Canadians are becoming increasingly interested in alternative power vehicles, with a solid 69 per cent of Canadians saying that five years from now they expect to be driving a hybrid or electric vehicle. In addition, over one third of respondents say they would consider purchasing or will likely purchase a plug-in electric vehicle for their next vehicle purchase. The CAA study also reveals that many Canadians don't fully understand how hybrids or battery-electric vehicles work and how they differ from conventional gas-powered vehicles..
That’s why CAA has published a new vehicle technologies eBook called: Gas, Hybrid and Electric: What you need to know. This easy-to-understand guide will help you sort through the differences between each vehicle type, along with the technological advancements being made in both gas and battery powered vehicles.
CAA's Gas, Hybrid and Electric: What you need to know is written in non-technical language by two of Canada’s best-known automotive journalists, Gerry Malloy and Marc Lachapelle.
