A hybrid vehicle is one that uses two or more distinct types of power, such as submarines that use diesel when surfaced and batteries when submerged. Other means to store energy include pressurized fluid in hydraulic hybrids.
Hybrid electric vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, which uses energy stored in batteries. A hybrid electric vehicle cannot be plugged in to charge the battery. Instead, the battery is
charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine.
Typically, hybrids have lower battery ranges than all-electric vehicles, and the electrical capacity is designed more to supplement gasoline driving and to help maximize fuel efficiency. Some hybrids offer an electric-only driving mode, which may only be available for low speeds and/or short ranges.
Advantages of a Hybrid Car:
- Environmentally Friendly.
- Financial Benefits.
- Less Dependence on Fossil Fuels.
- Regenerative Braking System.
- Built From Light Materials.
- Assistance From Electric Motor.
- Smaller Engines.
- Automatic Start and Stop
Higher Purchasing Cost And Complex Hybrid Tech
Due to their higher complexity, hybrid vehicles are considerably more expensive than their ICE counterparts. In addition to all the technology that is commonly installed in a conventional car, hybrid vehicles feature: electric motor(s) a large battery pack.
