A hybrid vehicle generally, is a vehicle that uses two or more distinct power sources to propel. There are certain common pwer sources they are: on-board rechargeable energy storage system (RESS) and a fueled power source, air or human powered bicycle with electric motor or gas engine.

Most hybrid cars are referred to as hybrid-electric vehicle or HEV. Usually, a HEV uses combustion and electric motors to proper the vehicle. I bet you don't know what I am talking about. It's okay.

A HEV vehicle commonly combines a conventional propulsion system with RESS. They combine these two to achieve better fuel economy.

HEVs are considered the premium for hybrid cars. Thus, this tells us that they are more expensive. This is usually due to the car having more electronics and also extra batteries. However, some hybrid cars are considered more expensive because of their design. One important thing to note is that when you sell your hybrid car it is not the same as selling your normal car. The selling price depends on the usage of the car.

Do you want to drive a hybrid car? I know I do. Well, there is only one obvious answer on why I would drive a hybrid car. It is because I want to save our one and only planet. If you have a chance to drive a hybrid car, take it. Hybrid cars ae fun to drive!
