Autos: Understanding Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Small Engine + Electric Motor = Huge Efficiencies

Cars are generally designed with engines more
powerful than needed. The idea is to budget
for demanding occasions. However, in order to be
mighty, the engines have to be big, which, in turn,
means they also have reduced fuel efficiencies.
Hybrid Electric Vehicles put out more power while
running on less fuel because they have modest engines
that are backed up by electric motors. For ordinary
driving tasks, the small engine is called upon, and
should matters become challenging, it's helped out
by the electric one.
