Get to Know Hybrid
Hybrid vehicles are becoming more common in the industry seemingly every day. But is the hybrid route right for you? Learn more about some of the top hybrids on the market, and the benefits they bring in fuel economy and to the environment as a whole.
Hybrid for the Layman
What is a hybrid vehicle and how does it work? We can all appreciate the advantages that hybrid vehicles provide; using less gas and being better for the environment. But how it all comes together is pretty interesting. Think of a hybrid vehicle essentially as an electric vehicle. It is equipped with an electric motor that provides power to the wheels. But in addition, there is also a small gasoline engine that powers a generator. This gasoline engine provides power for the vehicle at cruising speeds, while batteries kick in the extra power needed for acceleration. But since the gasoline engine only has output of 10 to 20 horsepower and runs at one speed, it is very efficient. Therefore, the car is great on fuel and less harmful to the environment.
Save Gas, Save the Environment
Hybrid vehicles have been joined in the market by electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles. While they all may work in mildly different ways, one thing is for sure – they use significantly less fuel than a traditional gas powered vehicle. In fact, the CO2 emissions on hybrid vehicles are nearly half of those from traditional gasoline powered vehicles. This means less money spent at the pump, and less emissions into the environment – a win-win.
