The Road Map for Savings with Cars

The Question

Our family is in the of purchasing a new car, and we are considering a model. We keep vehicles for a time (our current are six and 10 years old), and we are curious the maintenance costs and reliability of cars, especially battery Will the larger investment of a hybrid vehicle pay off in the long

The Explanation

There are many of hybrid vehicles, and some are common than you might For example, busses in several cities and most locomotive run on diesel and electricity. It is simply the of multiple types of energy defines a vehicle as a “hybrid.”

The popular hybrid car models on the market are gasoline-electric hybrids, combine a small version of the combustion engine found in cars with an electric powered by a battery pack. technologies substantially increase efficiency. A conventional car can convert 20 percent of the thermal energy by the combustion of gas into work, hybrid cars convert 70 percent.

In a gas-powered car, gasoline from a fuel tank to an combustion engine, providing the necessary for the engine to turn the transmission, which then the wheels. A hybrid car has a smaller tank and engine, typically a few additional mechanical tweaks increase efficiency and reduce These small engines use parts, less fuel, and energy-consuming cylinders, thus less energy to propel the

Hybrids also have a electric motor that can as either an engine or a generator. it acts like an engine, flows into it from the pack, providing energy for the to turn the transmission and so turn the When the driver presses on the and slows down, the electric acts like a generator, the excess kinetic energy and it in the battery pack for future

Hybrid Cars Possible Current Technology

There are different kinds of hybrid currently on the market. “Micro” engage their electric only for non-driving functions, activating the internal combustion In “mild” hybrids, around 10 of the driving power comes the electric motor. In “parallel” both the electric motor and the engine can turn the transmission at the time; in “series” hybrids, the motor can accept power either the engine or the battery to turn the transmission and move the
