Hybrid Car Information and Resources

A hybrid car, also known as an HEV or hybrid electric vehicle, is an automobile that is powered by two sources; an internal combustion engine, and an electric motor. Hybrid cars have no use for plugs, as they are amply charged by the movement of the wheels, and storing the kinetic energy that is generated through a process called regenerative braking. Hybrid cars have many environmental benefits (see Emissions and Pollution,) and economical benefits (see Facts, Why Buy a Hybrid, and Tax Breaks and Rebates.)
