A hybrid car has significantly more torque and acceleration that you'll have to get used to. Also it's very quiet which can be dangerous in traffic.

A gas/electric hybrid car gives better gas mileage and produces less emissions. They also tend to have better resale value, especially when gas prices increase. However, they do provide a different driving experience and are not designed for speed or performance.
