Hybrid cars are vehicles that combine gasoline engine and electric motors to generate energy when running. The tend to use two or more distinctive power sources in operation to get the on board energy for propulsion, an example is of a diesel engine for combustion with electric engine that powers the electronics motors and battery packs.
However, hybrid cars should and must not be confused with electric cars since they use gas to burn out the energy that is picked by the electric operated parts to run them.
Hybrid cars are classified in to lay outs since they don’t pose and operate in the same measure due to their variance in system lay out.the following can be identified forms of hybrid cars UK
Series hybrid �” these are the oldest form of hybrid cars UK has , they are run in a way that the drive wheels are turned by electric motors and the dedicated engine burns the fuel to expel the emission this in return produces electric power on board the vehicle.an example of such hybrid is the 2014 BMW i3.
Parallel hybrids �” these are the less complex and cost effective automotive engine. With this type the output from the engine and the electric motor are blended to upstream the power transmission. Their engines their electric motors push up extra power boost that may in return run the engines over short distances depending on the engine capacity. Most of them are powered by the regenerative energy that recharges the batteries.an example of such vehicles is the Honda civic hybrid.
Series parallel hybrids �” in this type of modern form of hybrid cars in the UK computer system monitors the driving condition of the vehicle and therefore decides which mode is the most suitable to run the vehicle at that moment. This is continued by continuous variable transmission through the planetary gear set contrary to a system of variable pulleys and belts.an example of such run vehicles is the ford c-max.
Plug in hybrids �” these are the type of hybrid cars are slightly distinguished by the factored battery enlargement that permits the electric driving to extend beyond the one or two mile range that is accorded with the regular hybrid cars. They also provide an option where the car can be plugged and charged to a specified outlet when parked. Their main benefit is that they can do short trips on electric mode reserving the gasoline engine for longer drives. An example of such is the Toyota Prius.
