Hybrid Cars

By Ty Mie Shoo

Intro

Have you ever wondered what a hybrid car really was? Or have you ever wanted a car that will save money by saving gas? Well, in this report, I will tell you about what the word hybrid means, some examples of hybrids, what it is, how much less pollution it makes than a regular car, the history, and how it works.

What is a Hybrid Car?

This paragraph is about what the word “hybrid” means.  According to Julia Layton, the word hybrid means two of anything.  So, something that has TWO power sources is a hybrid.  That's why we call cars that use gas and electricity hybrids. I think that’s cool because it has two power sources, not just one.

 

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. There are a lot of hybrids that are not just cars, and all of them are cool.

 

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. Hybrids have two power sources, and that makes them better than normal cars.

 

This paragraph is about how much less pollution a hybrid car makes than a regular car.  According to Toyota.com, A hybrid makes less than half of the pollution than a normal car.  These dangerous emissions are called CO2. Half the pollution means you can save money on gas, and save the environment.
