As much as manufacturers of Hybrids strive to make them “feel” like normal gas-powered cars, most drivers will notice some differences – and not all from behind the wheel. Note that not all Hybrids are created equal, so some may not exhibit all of the traits mentioned.
Most gas-saving tips seem to focus on the things that drivers can do to eke a few more miles out of a tank of gas. Driving slower, driving less aggressively, avoiding prolonged periods of idling…we’ve all heard this stuff before.

Since production would be limited, Nash decided to build a high-profit car.
