Benefits of Choosing Hybrid Vehicles in Lakeland, FL

It's at lightning speed that the automotive industry is producing hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles. The demand for these cars and SUVs is growing at a rapid pace, as is a particular awareness to reduce our carbon footprint. Audi is alert to this demand to reduce CO2 emissions, aiming to become an integral part of the solution. HEVs, known as hybrid electric vehicles, help to move Audi's commitment to reducing CO2 emissions forward. These vehicles also give drivers many unique advantages that gas-powered models can't provide. The Audi e-tron® and the Audi e-tron® Sportback are two particular models that have driven forward Audi's goal to reduce carbon emissions, and the e-tron® is available here at Audi Lakeland.

Benefits of Choosing Hybrid

Ecofriendly

Eco-friendly

You can help the earth by driving a hybrid vehicle, and who doesn't want to help our planet? You'll reduce CO2 emissions, like previously mentioned. Some of the fast-charging, all-electric models even qualify as zero-emission vehicles, which means not a single drop of fuel is burned for power. Hybrids have come a long way since they first arrived on the road, which means some hybrids can now reach MPGe estimates of over 40, 45 or even 50, while all-electric vehicles can top even that. For example, the 2021 e-tron® has an EPA-estimated 78 MPGe combined.* Get the stylish transportation you need while helping out the planet.

With such high MPGe estimates and (for some vehicles) no fuel used at all, the long-term cost of fuel consumption could be lower for the hybrid and all-electric models, unlike their gas-powered counterparts. Save on trips to the gas station as well as maintenance, since all-electric vehicles operate without your normal engine upkeep (such as engine belt replacements, oil changes, transmission fluid flushes). Your wallet will be thankful when you factor in the cost of engine maintenance on top of fuel savings.

Tax Incentives

Tax Incentives

Not only will you see differences in long-term costs, the upfront costs can be lowered for a qualifying hybrid or all-electric purchase with federal and state tax incentives. The U.S. Department of Energy incentivizes American consumers to buy qualifying vehicles in order to build and maintain the market for electric vehicles. This is great news for you. To see which rebates, credits or incentives you qualify for based on where you live, visit the Alternative Fuels Data Center and select your state.

Warranty

Warranty

Did you know that the standard battery warranties for all-electric or hybrid vehicles can be better than those of gas-powered vehicles? For example, the 2021 Audi e-tron® comes with a standard Audi New Vehicle Limited Warranty (coverage for 4 years or 50,000, whichever comes first) and the Audi Battery Warranty (coverage for 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first). Some warranties on hybrids can even be transferred from owner to owner. That means if you find a hybrid in our used inventory, it may still be covered under its original warranty.
