Hybrid Car

In simple terms it is a car which runs a combination of a petrol/diesel engine and an electric motor.

The main advantages of a hybrid are that it uses less fuel and emits less CO2 than most conventional non-hybrid vehicles.

Conventional Hybrid -

At low speeds, the engine is turned off and the car is driven only by the electric motor. Then, when maximum acceleration is needed, both work together. At stages between, any excess power generated by the engine is used to recharge the batteries that power the electric motor. The battery is big enough that the electric motor can power the car for up to 1.25 miles.

Cars from Audi, BMW, Citroen, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes, Peugeot, Toyota, Porsche and Volkswagen work on this basis.

Plug-in Hybrids -

There are also the plug-in hybrids which, as the name implies, can be plugged into an electric outlet to recharge their batteries, as well as being charged on the move.

Effectively, they are a halfway between conventional hybrids and full electric vehicles. Although they have a conventional engine, they also have larger batteries than regular hybrids and can drive longer distances on electric power alone - up to 30 miles in some cases.

Volvo, Toyota, Volkswagen and Mitsubishi are some manufacturers known to use this type of hybrid vehicle.
