2010 Cars To Fight Gas Prices

2010 cars are looking better than ever and are enticing consumers as gas prices are once again on the rise. The list of new electric vehicles coming to market is met with strong consumer demand. Future automobiles will eventually eliminate the use of gasoline and provide cleaner ways to deliver new transportation.

Gas prices are unpredictable as consumers indicate a sudden trend for new cars with high fuel efficiency. The hybrids are zipping down streets in just about every neighborhood in America. Most of these alternative energy cars are made by Honda, Toyota, Ford and a few independent automakers, which just arrived on the scene.

The Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, and Ford Fusion are the popular new hybrid cars. If you're in the market to buy a new hybrid, don't just settle on word-of-mouth, but make your decision on reliability and fuel economy to help with the rising price of gas. Be sure to test-drive these vehicles at your local dealerships.

For example, I live on a street which has a second-generation Toyota Prius in most driveways. If I were to base my opinions on exterior looks, I think the new 2010 Ford Fusion car and Honda Insight look sharp. However, there is something about sitting in a Toyota Prius where the dashboard seems to be more modern than the rest.

You also need to act fast if you plan on using the hybrid tax credits for new cars in 2010. Some of them expire in September and October and could help you offset gas prices. Each time they expire, the credits are getting lower. The credits are to help reduce carbon emissions.

While most hybrids are using a combination of gasoline and electric alternatives, these 2010 cars still produce carbon emissions. However, most of them reduce it by as much as 90 percent. The only real zero emission automobiles are the plug-in hybrids which only use electric and no gas.

Most of the new 2010 vehicles do offer a plug-in option, even though they combine the use of gasoline. For example, most models will run solely on electric power for up to 47 miles without using one single drop of fuel. You can always purchase this option, if your daily commute is less than 47 miles, while charging the vehicle from home or at work.
