A vehicle that combines two or more sources of power to generate momentum is referred to as a hybrid car. Generally, hybrid SUVs or hybrid cars are a combination of a diesel and a gasoline engine with an electric motor.
The powering unit is composed of a gas tank, a diesel and / or a gasoline engine and batteries to power the electric motor. The engines of such hybrid cars are small and efficient and they are boosted by the electric motor when more power or momentum is required.
A computer, onboard, works continuously to achieve optimum levels of performance between the gasoline / diesel engine and the electric motor. Very few people can actually notice if you are driving a hybrid since they look very much like their conventional cousins.
