For information on purchasing a Hybrid / EV car in Jamaica please watch the video below.
Used hybrid cars are cheaper than the regular version, however, new ones are not. So you will save from the day of purchase.
The main advantage of purchasing a hybrid is to save money on gas.
People may say not to buy a hybrid because the batteries may/will give you problems. This is true and not true.
The savings you get from gas normally significantly exceed the cost of repairing or replacing a hybrid. Now Jamaica has a hybrid specialist, FimiPro Limited so you can get your hybrid batteries rebuilt, we also sell brand new batteries.
The main issue hybrids have is replacing the hybrid batteries and the cost has come down. It normally costs less to replace them than replacing a pair of shocks.
