How Does a Hybrid Vehicle Work?

Hybrid vehicles use both a traditional gas engine and an electric motor to deliver a great mix of capability and efficiency. Depending on the model, a hybrid's electric motor can rely totally on the gas engine to generate power or it can use an exterior source to take in even more power, the latter is called a plug-in hybrid. Plug-in hybrids generally can put more dependence on the electric motor, giving you even more efficiency.

Newer hybrids can use modern technology to generate even more energy, like kinetic braking systems that take power from the energy generated by braking. It is a great time to get a hybrid vehicle and all these advances will just continue to get better and better. We hope that the Honda CR-V Hybrid makes its debut soon, but for now you can take a look at other Honda hybrids.
