How Hybrid Cars Work

If you are wondering how hybrid cars work, you are in for a treat. Hybrid cars are increasingly popular because they offer people a chance to save money on gas and save the environment at the same time. Here is how hybrid cars work: a hybrid car incorporates a conventional combustion engine with an electric propulsion system.  When you apply the brake, the kinetic energy generated charges the batteries of the electric motor. Plug-in hybrids also charge the battery by connecting it to an external power source. Many hybrids switch from the engine to the electric motor when the car is idling, reducing emissions and improving fuel economy.

Here at MPG Car Rental, we offer a number of different hybrids for rent. Notable examples include the Prius V, the Chevy Volt, and the Lexus CT 200h. You can also find the Fisker Karma, a hybrid sports car that is quickly becoming all the rage amongst environmentally-conscious celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and others. If you are interested in additional details on our diverse fleet of green vehicles, or want to learn more about how hybrid cars work, please contact us directly with any questions that you might have.
