Jul 28 to Create Guide to Hybrid and Electric Cars

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2014 is set to launch a comprehensive guide to hybrid and electric cars to help consumers make an informed buying decision, the company said yesterday.

Electric and hybrid cars are becoming a bigger part of the market every day, a spokesman said. But most people don’t know that much about either type of car. Buyers need to evaluate them differently than they would a normal type of vehicle. And hybrid and electric cars are certainly not for everyone. We want to help people get the information they need so they understand these new cars and can decide if they will fit into their lifestyle.

The first sections of the guide will deal with what to look for when buying a new or used electric or hybrid car, he said.

Understanding how the cars work is very important, because it lets the buyer know the types of red flags to look for, he said. But of course, that’s only part of the picture.

The later sections of the guide will deal with explaining the differences between electric cars and traditional gas-powered vehicles so that people can figure out which type is right for them.

Depending on a person’s lifestyle, a hybrid or electric car can either be a great investment or a complete waste of money, he said. ‘We’ll highlight different situations and help any buyer take an honest look at their driving needs, so they can figure out if these expensive new cars are right for them.

About driving records search provides instant information that details a person’s driving history of violations, suspension and more. With thousands of satisfied customers, is a trusted source for driving record reports. Visit to chat with a live representative, call 1-855-482-6235, or email Manager(at)DMV(dot)us(dot)org with any questions or concerns.

Regency Car Rentals Launches the Rent Before You Buy Test Drive Initiative for Exotic and Luxury Vehicles

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 26, 2014

Regency Car Rentals (, leading luxury car rental service in Los Angeles, CA, today announced a unique partnership with local car dealership Keyes Mercedes to help consumers find the right luxury or exotic car for their needs.

Most car buyers only get to test drive their vehicles when visiting a car dealership. There are certain disadvantages to this method.

Second, the test drive typically lasts 15 to 30 minutes a very small amount of time to decide on the car they may be driving for years to come.

With this in mind, Regency Car Rentals partnered with the largest Mercedes dealership in the country, Keyes Mercedes to deliver a unique car shopping experience. Customers can now rent many of the newest luxury car models from Regency Car Rentals no sales pressure involved for the day. After a full day of test driving the model, customers can then make a more informed purchasing decision, and if they purchase or lease the model from Keyes Mercedes, the dealership will pay for your rental.

This program was conceived with customer experience in mind a full day allows time to explore the area, test the car on many different roads and highways, and get acquainted with the features available, without the need to return to a dealership within minutes.

The all-new 2014 Mercedes S550 is one of the premier models in demand today, and was built with both performance and comfort in mind. The S550 can go from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, and has a lush interior to boot; these features are best discovered over a days driving than in a brief test drive. Regency Car Rentals stock includes a variety of luxury rentals such as Bentley, Audi, and Rolls Royce models and exotic performance vehicles like Ferrari and Lamborghini. With the success of the Rent Before You Buy program with Mercedes, more dealerships and manufacturers will come on board to give customers a real test drive experience.
