We all know that the cost of running a hybrid car is cheaper than a traditional internal combustion engined vehicle. That much is obvious -- otherwise, why bother? -- but there are some added extra features, that we didn't know about, that give you a pretty good reason to consider one as your next car, especially if you're a regular commuter.

Lots and lots of Australians drive to work. We're a country of commuters. But, by and large, we commute in older cars that aren't really made for traffic.
