  • According to new research from the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI), hybrids have a 25% lower injury rate over their non-hybrid counterparts when it comes to shielding their occupants from injury in a collision. Hybrids generally weigh 10% heavier than the same model non-hybrid, giving the hybrid a weight advantage in a collision. On the down side, hybrids are about 20% more likely to be involved in a pedestrian crash with injuries, says HLDI. This is a similar result as with two other National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) studies (2009, 2011) both of which found hybrids have a higher percentage of pedestrian and bicycle crashes.
