Like change, technological trends are constant. The technology used in building cars has evolved from conventional gas-powered vehicles to battery-powered electric vehicles (BEV). After battery electric vehicles came the hybrid vehicles that are powered alternately by both gas and electric motors. The gas and electric motor can work together or independently to power the car.
After the hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), the plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) followed, which can be connected to electricity to charge the batteries and can also be charged while driving. The good news is that there are several affordable hybrid cars in Canada. The 2022 Toyota Prius Prime tops Canadalisthub’s most affordable hybrid cars in Canada.
