Hybrid Car Introduction

Hybrid cars generally use a combination of two power sources.  The most common hybrids currently available on the market use both electric motors and the petrol combustion engines.  More recently a number of diesel hybrid cars have been announced.  Batteries charge and act as a storage device to power an electric motor, usually working when the vehicle is travelling at low speed or in traffic, therefore ideal for city driving.  The petrol engine, usually a small efficient unit then powers the car when more power is needed such as at higher speeds or under heavy acceleration allowing the combustion engine to only operate at its more optimum efficient speeds.  

The combustion engine is used to recharge the battery cells along with regenerative braking, therefore hybrid cars do not need to be plugged into an external power supply.  This combination of battery power and internal combustion engine produces less pollution and CO2 as no gases are released when the electric motor is running.

2012 saw the launch of plug-in hybrid cars which means rather than the electric motors being charged and powered by the conventional engine, they are charged by plugging the vehicle in to a mains plug.  This is more efficient and eliminates the inherent problems on pure electric cars such as range and charge times. As such, plug-in hybrid cars benefit from up to £5k in UK government grants.
