Is Hybrid Repair More Expensive than a Gas Car?

Hybrid Repair Webster NY

Many of our customers think hybrid repair is more expensive than repair for a gasoline-powered car, and in the past, that assumption was often true. At first, when hybrid vehicles were first introduced in 1997, many auto shop owners were wary to work with hybrids since the technology was so avant garde. Since then, as hybrids have risen in popularity, more auto shop employees have the knowledge and experience to repair hybrid engines.

All our employees here at Tire World are trained and qualified to work with hybrid vehicles.  

So What Makes Hybrid Repair Unique?

  1. Engine

The engine is the most sophisticated part of hybrid vehicles. With it’s electric throttle and lean burn combustion, both parts for gasoline and electric power need to function properly. If the battery fails, a new one can cost from $1,000 to $6,000. But even though the design of hybrid batteries is more complicated, it’s also a lot more reliable. And to further comfort hybrid owners, hybrids include either an 8-10 year warranty plan that offers protections for the first 100,000-150,000 miles.

  1. Hybrid Drive & Electric Parts

You won’t find belts and hoses under the hood of a hybrid vehicle. Instead, you’ll find fuel efficient technology that incorporates a regenerative braking system. Gasoline engines waste about 80% of the energy they produce from burning the gas. Electric engines step in to take care of frequent stop-start situations, utilizing the normally wasted energy from the gas engine. Hybrids never have to be plugged in and have no required radius – they rely on the gas to give them the initial power they need to start up.

  1. Tires & Wheels

All the drive components of hybrids are directly connected to the electric power, including the tires or wheels. In addition to the manufacturing design, the tires that are most suitable for hybrids are low-rolling resistance tires. They’ll provide even greater fuel efficiency, adding to the savings that hybrids offer.
