The Cars of the Future!

Hybrid Electric Cars

How it Works

  • These cars contain both a gasoline or diesel-powered internal combustion engine as well as an electric motor and battery.
  • Can be partly or wholly run on electricity while still having the ability to be fueled like normal cars.
  • CREATES LESS POLLUTION FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND MORE SAVINGS FOR YOU!

MAKING AN ELECTRIC HYBRID VEHICLE

More about It

  • COST: Like all cars, the price of an electric hybrid vehicle varies anywhere from about $25,000 to over $70,000
  • MAINTENANCE/LONGEVITY: Maintenance is similar to normal cars since it still has a regular combustion engine. The electrical system (battery, motor) requires minimal maintenance. With proper care, an electric hybrid car can last for many years to come!

Pros

  • Encourages efficient driving
  • It's quiet
  • The brakes last longer due to regenerative brakes (energy created when using braking the car is collected and used to power the car)
  • Contributes less to global warming

DISCLAIMER

  • Cars are expensive
  • Lower highway mileage
  • Doesn't work well when traveling long distances
