New energy vehicles are the direction of future development, and the definitions of new energy vehicles in different countries in the world are different. my country’s new energy vehicles are mainly pure electric vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles. For new energy vehicles, not only can you enjoy some subsidies and preferential policies in the policy, but also in some cities with restricted traffic “open side” to new energy vehicles, so to a certain extent, it satisfies friends who often drive in big cities, and will not be affected by Line restrictions.
What are the advantages of plug-in hybrid vehicles? The first is to enjoy new energy supplements, such as exemption from purchase tax and so on. The second is that in some cities, cars need to be lottery, and new energy vehicles can not be lottery. Then, plug-in hybrid vehicles can be used not only as fuel vehicles, but also as commuter electric vehicles for short distances. Compared with pure electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles do not have the “range anxiety” of pure electric vehicles, and they have the advantage of energy saving if they commute short distances.
If a plug-in hybrid is used for short-distance commuting, the plug-in hybrid also has the advantages of low noise, low vibration and high comfort. If you have requirements for driving, you can also experience the dual power advantages brought by the fuel engine and the electric motor. Plug-in hybrid vehicles will be better than gasoline vehicles in terms of driving experience and riding experience.
The advantages of plug-in hybrid vehicles are obvious, and the disadvantages are also very significant. The cruising range of a plug-in hybrid vehicle is generally relatively short, and the vehicle adds a battery on the basis of a fuel vehicle, and the increase in the battery means an increase in the weight of the vehicle itself. Therefore, if you want to save energy, you must use more electricity. If you use it for a long time, it is relatively uneconomical. The increase in the weight of the vehicle will naturally increase the fuel consumption.
In addition, there is a need for complete supporting facilities, that is, the conditions for the community or unit to report charging. If the fuel is used for a long time, it will not only damage the battery, but also increase the fuel consumption to a certain extent.
Finally, there is the issue of battery cost. Generally, the battery life is about 5 to 6 years, and the battery cost is relatively high. Therefore, even if you enjoy subsidies at the time of purchase, the price will also be higher than the price of fuel vehicles. Another thing to consider is the cost of battery replacement after a few years, which is also a lot of money.
So should you buy a plug-in hybrid car? Judging from the current market situation, consumers who buy plug-in hybrid vehicles are generally just in need. For example, in some cities, the purchase of a fuel vehicle requires a lottery, but you can’t get it by yourself. In addition, there are some restricted cities, in order to avoid the inconvenience of their own travel, they will buy plug-in hybrid vehicles. In addition, there are some who want to buy pure electric vehicles, but because there are no charging conditions, they take a compromise.
Therefore, whether you need to buy a plug-in hybrid vehicle still needs to be based on your actual needs. For example, if the daily driving distance is not long and there are charging conditions, then plug-in hybrid vehicles can still be selected. If you don’t drive long distances, then you can choose a pure electric vehicle that is more cost-effective. How to choose still varies from person to person. It cannot be generalized. The car that meets your actual needs is the best car.
