Basics of Hybrid Cars

October 10, 2014

HybridHybrid car technology has grown since the invention of the Toyota Prius hybrid car. This was the first car running on the hybrid technology to be introduced into the market. The huge success of the Toyota Prius set a benchmark for other car manufacturers to start venturing into this technology. Today, most of the major car manufacturing companies have already rolled out their own versions of the hybrid car. However, these cars are still retailing at a higher price compared to conventional gasoline or diesel powered vehicles. The problem however, is that most people around the world still don’t know much about this technology. If you are one of those people who do not know much about the hybrid car technology, this would be a great starting point for you to get some overview information.

In terms of environmental conservation, the electric cars are the best. This is because these cars have zero emissions. This means that these cars would appeal very much to the environmentally savvy car owners. The problem comes in the speed and design of these cars. Manufacturers of this type of car are yet to discover the best technology that allows them to get the power for high speed, while keeping the design consideration intact. The advantage with the hybrid cars is that they combine both gasoline fuel and electric power and this helps create the feeling of being environmentally conscious while not compromising on the speed and the design of the car.

What is a Hybrid Car?

A hybrid car is a vehicle that makes use of at least two sources of power in order to move. There are many types of hybrid cars depending on the sources of power. For instance, there are diesel-electric hybrids, gasoline-electric hybrids, and there are plans to have bio gas-electric hybrid cars in the market. The power from the engine part of the vehicle is used for acceleration and moving the car in higher speeds. The power from the electric part of the vehicle is used power the vehicle at lower speeds and also helps support the vehicle during acceleration.

How the Battery Holds Charge in the Hybrid

The good thing about having a hybrid car is that you don’t have to keep recharging the battery regularly. This is because the battery is charged whenever you are on the move. This means that you don’t have to worry about manually charging you battery. The energy generated from the braking system also helps charge the battery.
