Are the life spans of hybrid vehicles longer than regular cars?

I've read that hybrid vehicles might last longer than regular cars. Is this true?

The short answer is, it depends.
Whether or not hybrid vehicles last longer than gas-powered vehicles remains the subject of debate. That said, the manufacturer’s extended warranty is often more generous than gas-powered equivalents—in part because federal law requires hybrid batteries to last a minimum of 100,000 miles or eight years.
The longevity of the vehicle is also highly dependent on the make and model and whether or not you adhere to a basic car maintenance schedule. Some hybrid owners report their vehicle lasting much longer than the warranty because of regular care.
To ensure that you keep your hybrid in the best shape possible, make sure you have good car insurance. You can find the best rates by shopping with Jerry. Jerry will find you the best rates from up to 50 providers in minutes. The best part? Average Jerry users save $879 per year on car insurance!
