A Hybrid car is a gas-electric hybrid powered vehicle uses a mixture of technologies. Today's hybrid cars are driven by electric motors powered by both batteries and an ICE. Most commonly used when refering to petroleum-electric hybrid vehicles, the Hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV) uses gasoline (petrol) or diesel to power internal-combustion engines (ICEs), and electric batteries to power electric motors. A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle using an on-board rechargeable energy storage system (RESS) and a fueled propulsion power source for vehicle propulsion. They are low-polluting and low-petroleum consuming cars. The different propulsion power systems may have common subsystems or components.
