By Joe Jonas

Intro

Hybrid means two things smashed together like an armadillo and a banana peel together.

What a hybrid car is

This paragraph is about why hybrid cars were invented. According to Julia Layton, the hybrid car is so great it can cut down on pollution and help gas prices go down. Another great thing is when you step on the brakes it charges your battery. The                                                                           hybrid car is so awesomely mega-cool.

This paragraph is about the word hybrid. The word hybrid means two of anything.  So, something that has TWO power sources like if you take a gorilla and a blender then smash them together you got a hybrid.  I wish I had a gorilla/blender then I could make smoothies and do whatever gorillas do.

 This paragraph is about some examples of hybrids, which are NOT cars.  According to Julia Layton, some examples of non-car hybrids are trains, buses, and submarines.  The trains and the buses use diesel fuel and electricity.  The submarines use nuclear power and electricity. If you take a r.c car and a chimpanzee then smash them together then you got a hybrid.

 This paragraph is about what a hybrid car is.  According to Toyota.com, a hybrid car has two sources of power.  First, it has a gasoline engine.  Second, it has an electric motor. The hybrid has double the power and awesome sweetness as a ordinary car.

History

This paragraph is about how hybrids work

According to Julia Layton a hybrid car can re-charge its own battery by stepping on the brakes all that energy charges up your battery instead of going up into space. It can go up to 100 miles per gallon now thatŐs good gas mileage. Hybrids are so totally awesome and mega cool!
