The auto industry has always been identified with innovation. The most talked about product from them recently is hybrid cars. While petrol cars cause a lot of harm to the environment by smoke and exhaust fumes, electric cars are very hard to maintain and charge up and also they do not have capability to travel long distances without charging. This is where hybrid cars come in; they negate the bad things of both and retain only the positive aspects.
In a hybrid car one still uses commercial gasoline but instead of the gasoline directly running the car engine, it charges the battery which in turn produces electricity to run the engine. This way a lot of gasoline use is reduced and the car can also travel long distances. Also when one brakes or releases the accelerator, the motion in the car’s motor is taken in by the generator and it puts the energy back into the battery.
