Juan buys a Hybrid Car

This past week I purchased a hybrid car for the first time in my life. The car is a 2013 Ford Fusion hybrid. I am the first person in my family to buy this type of car. Being the oldest brother and cousin I hope to set an example and hope everybody considers driving a hybrid and helps out the environment.  The reason I bought this car was to help the environment and, of course, to save on gas.

A hybrid car has both an electric engine and a gas engine.  The electric engine works when the car is driving at lower speeds and the gas engine works at higher speeds.  The brake system is used to capture a charge that recharges the battery for the electric engine.  That in turns helps the car conserve gas.  This really comes in handy when gas prices are high.  In the next couple of months I will be checking to see how much money I will be saving.  Stay posted for the results!
