Hybrids typically emit approximately 33 tonnes.
Hybrid cars hold their value better than petrol cars, thanks to their reliability, lower running costs and the fact there are fewer models on the market.
As hybrids use electric power at slower speeds, there’s less wear and tear on the engine. The brakes last longer, too – they don’t have to work as hard because the regenerative braking system helps to slow the car down.
What Car? analysed more than 7,000 different makes and models and discovered electrified vehicles retain 47% of their value on average, after three years and 30,000 miles.

Because hybrid cars spend some of their time running on electric power, there’s less wear and tear on the engine.
The brakes last longer, too. They don’t have to work as hard because the regenerative braking system helps slow the car down. As the brakes need replacing less often, servicing costs are kept down.
For peace of mind, the Honda i-MMD battery is covered by a comprehensive warranty for the first five years or 100,000km – whichever comes first.
Should I buy a hybrid?
If you’re not ready to commit to a full electric vehicle, a hybrid can be a great option that offers you most of the benefits, without changing the way you drive.
For instance, the Honda i-MMD Hybrid powertrain used in our hybrid cars delivers efficient performance that switches between electric and petrol power, depending on your speed.
This offers a responsive drive, while delivering greater fuel economy and lower emissions.
