Should you buy a used electric or hybrid hybrid car?
There are many benefits to premium electric cars:
A sale price 20 to 50% lower than the new one (depending on the mileage, condition and age of the vehicle).
A car and battery warranty for purchases from a professional or dealer.
Reduced mileage because electric vehicles, despite their comfortable autonomy, drive more in the city or on short journeys (for small urban cars)
The biggest advantage of buying used it is still the maintenance budget that is lower than that of a thermal vehicle. No oil changes, no belts, no fluids to control, if we add to this the energy recovery system during braking and deceleration that saves brakes, buying second hand is interesting.
The second-hand rechargeable premium hybrid will be more affordable than the electric one. In addition, with an ever-increasing offer of second-hand, you can find the model you are looking for. Buying a plug-in hybrid car is a good long-term investment, it limits CO² emissions. On long journeys, autonomy will be excellent with low fuel consumption.
Your driving needs will define your choice between an all-electric and plug-in hybrid. Electric will be more restrictive on long journeys on the road, will have to be recharged and will be slightly more suitable for urban areas and conurbations. The plug-in hybrid vehicle will have the same range as a traditional thermal vehicle, with the advantage of being more fuel efficient. For long-distance travel, for frequent trips or weekend getaways without worrying about recharging, it should be preferred.
