They encompass the best of both electrical and fossil fuel based modes of propulsion in motor vehicles. Hybrid cars have a normal internal combustion engine in addition to a battery pack and an electric motor which also acts as a dynamo to charge the battery. Hybrid cars save energy by recapturing that which may otherwise be lost during braking or driving downhill. In a hybrid car, no kinetic energy is lost. Instead, it is saved in the battery pack for later use when the car needs a power boost. This leads to owners saving money through reduced fuel usage. It also reduces pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels.
