Hybrid car nowadays are spreading around the world in various forms. In terms of design, quality, prices, the dual engines and other feature. Basically, hybrid cars are cars that work on both fuel and electricity and they are very effective. This investigation will conduct an important key words such as awareness of the people, environment, renewable energy, economic issues, fuel consumption., prices. The methodology of this work includes two main items, the first is a questionnaire to the public and the second interviews with local cars dealerships mangers. The result analysis showed that many people in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia think that hybrid cars should be in the open market with a verity of options such as the class of the cars and prices. In terms of environment 70% of the people think that hybrid cars are much better than gasoline cars for many reasons include environment. Also, 70% of people expect that there will be a trend to buy hybrid cars where vision of Saudi Arabia 2030 focused in alternative and safe energy resources. /span>
