What it is

This paragraph is about why are hybrids nice to have. According to howstuffworks.com you have most likely gone to a gas station and saw the gas pump went pass up $10 $15 $20. So, you could save you lots of money. So you should get a hybrid. Hybrids cost lots of money but they can also save you lots of money.

 

This paragraph is about how much does a hybrid weigh. According to Autos.Alo.com, The volt weighs 3,760 pounds and the Leaf weighs 3,370 pounds! Those are heavy cars! Both the leaf and volt are said to be small cars.

How it works

This paragraph is about do they have batteries. According to howstuffworks.com the batteries in a hybrid car are the energy storage devices for the electric motor. Unlike the gasoline in the fuel tank, which can only power the gasoline engine, the electric motor on a hybrid car can put energy into the batteries as well as draw energy from them. That is really cool!

 

This paragraph is about do they need gas. According to howstuffworks.com the batteries in a hybrid car are the energy storage devices for the electric motor. Unlike the gasoline in the fuel tank, which can only power the gasoline engine, the electric motor on a hybrid car can put energy into the batteries as well as draw energy from them. I thought they didnŐt need gas!

 

This paragraph is about do hybrid start without keys. According to fueleconomey.com the hybrid automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop and restarts it when the accelerator is pressed. This prevents wasted energy from idling. That is really interesting.

Add an electric motor and rechargeable batteries to the conventional gas engine—and see your efficiency increase by as much as 50 percent.

This paragraph is about where does the hybrids get there power.  According to hybrid cars.com You probably understand the basics of how the gasoline engine is working, but where is the electric motor getting its juice? ItŐs actually drawing power from, or pumping power into, a set of nickel metal hydride batteries. The computer is performing a lot of magic by knowing when to reclaim excess energy when braking the wheels with the electric motor (which is now working like a generator). It also knows when to pass power from the battery to the electric motor for acceleration. The computer is monitoring the amount of charge in the batteries, making sure that they never charge more than 60 percent and never less than 40 percent of their capacity. In this way, automakers say, the batteries will last a couple hundred thousand miles.
