how does hybrid car works

hbrid cars are powered by the combined fuel technology.they are unique in their nature because of their look and unique its name reflect hybrid means combination of two things it can be diesel-elctric or gas-electric.any vehicle having two sources of power sources is considered hybrid .most hybrid car currently running on the roads are mainly gas-electric hybrid.gasoline powered hybrid cars are more likely to find around a Gas Powered car there is a furl tank that supply gas to the engine and then engine turns transmission which moves wheels.while in case of electric car there are batteries that supply electric power to the motor which turns wheels. while hybrid car is the compostion of both by reducing the pollution as the secondary source of electric power and even to get more mileage .the main key facts in the HYBRID CAR is that it has a small gas engine rather big engine to produce more power as in conventional car.smaller engines are much better than the large engines because in big engine the displacement of cylinders are more so there is more fuel required to operate and even big engines are heavier thats why car need more energy to be accelerated fast.

here engine employs Atkinson combustion cycle which delays closing the intake valves to boost efficiency and reduce emmisions.
this hybrid car realtes to gas/electric GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe.
the two mode hybrid powertrain which delivers big SUV fuel ratings.
it would cost approximately $57,000 with two wheel drive and $60,000 for 4*4 wheel drive.

hybrid car efficiency

In case of hybrid car gasoline engine is put to be smaller than in conventional car making it most efficient.efficiency of engine can be improved by making it light using smaller cylinders and parts as big size engine needs more engine for operation.
piston and other internal componets are big so reuire more energy.thats why hybrid car saves gasoline and indirectly money.
