Hybrid and Electric Car Transport

With the rise of hybrid and electric vehicles, it is not uncommon to transport these types of vehicles. The concern is that since these cars are different that they will require different care. This is not the case and are treated the same as other vehicles despite their differences.

Weight
It is true that electric and hybrid vehicles weigh a lot less than a gas-powered vehicle. It has fewer metal components and usually opts for lighter weight materials. Because of how car shipping estimates are calculated, some auto transport companies do not want to put electric vehicles on their open car carriers. They assume that because an electric vehicle reduces the space and takes up less weight, the way they configure their load of cars will have to change to accommodate just one vehicle. The thing those auto transport companies do not know is that an electric vehicle is well worth it because it does not off-set the weight by the amount they think. With a good auto transport company that knows that most electric and hybrid cars are still heavy will still transport that kind of vehicle.

Here are a couple of the most popular electric and hybrid cars to transport:

Tesla
Nissan Leaf
Kia Soul EV
Fiat 500e
Ford Focus Electric
Toyota Prius
