hybrid car dashboard

If you’re looking to hire a car in the UAE, you have plenty of choices on styles. Whether you’re looking for SUVs or sedans, city runarounds or practical commercial vehicles, you’ll find them all at Hertz Car Rental. With us, you also have a variety of rental options, from monthly car leases to long-term car hire, short-term arrangements or extended commercial leases.

However, there’s one additional choice you need to make when you’re considering your car hire needs, and that’s whether to go for petrol, electric, or hybrid. Here’s why we think that renting a hybrid car has some serious benefits for drivers in the UAE.

  1. Fuel economy

There’s no denying that the fuel economy of a hybrid car is going to be far better than a traditional petrol-engine car. A hybrid car gives you the best of both worlds, allowing you to go full electric when you’re around town and switching back to petrol for those longer highway journeys. Because you’ll be using Eco-mode electric for a percentage of your time on the road, your fuel economy is stretched and you can get a higher km/Ltr ratio than with a standard petrol engine. That could add up to some serious savings, as well as cutting emissions, making it a greener motoring option.

  • They’re family-friendly

Hybrid cars range from elegant sedans like the Toyota Camry Hybrid to larger SUV crossovers like the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. With room for between five and seven passengers, these hybrid cars are perfect for the school run in Eco-mode or a trip to the beach at the weekend in petrol mode. Flexible and spacious, they’re exactly what you need if you want a versatile car that does everything, but without costing the Earth in emissions.

  • No compromise on comfort or performance

Hybrid cars give you all the comfort and performance of their petrol cousins. In fact, hybrids often outperform petrol cars with a choice of driver modes, giving you a greater degree of control over the vehicle to select greater efficiency or better performance, depending on the road conditions. They’re spacious and comfortable inside too, with large cabins and a quieter experience in Eco-mode for a more peaceful, tranquil commute in the mornings.

  • No range anxiety

While we’d all love to make the switch over to fully electric cars such as the Polestar 2, one thing that’s stopping a lot of drivers is the worry over ‘range anxiety’. The infrastructure of charging points for EVs has yet to be completed, and as EVs do have a limit on their range, this can cause anxiety if you’re on the highway with no idea as to where the next charging point might be! With a hybrid car, you don’t have that problem as they can be switched over to the standard petrol engine for longer journeys and filled up as normal at the nearest gas station.

  • They’re kinder to the planet

If you want to hire a car in the UAE but you’re concerned about the impact fossil fuels have on our planet, choosing to rent a hybrid car may be the greener option, especially if most of your driving is in town. This means you’ll be in Eco-mode and using the car’s electric motors more than you’ll be burning petrol. When running in EM, hybrid cars don’t produce any emissions such as carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. In busy city roads, the more hybrid cars there are, the cleaner the environment. And that’s good for everyone.

At Hertz car rental, we want to ensure all of our customers have the best choices when it comes to renting a car in the UAE. Our fleet of hybrid cars is growing all the time, as we strive to offer you a greener driving alternative with no compromise on comfort, performance, or that all-important ‘driver experience’.
