If you are a car enthusiast you will be interested to know how a hybrid car works. They are the most viable answer found so far to the problem of high fuel prices. They basically have two power sources. One is an internal combustion engine that burns gasoline in order to power the vehicle. The other is a battery that could store electric power to run an electric motor that could power the automobile.
The biggest advantage with hybrid cars is that they are able to generate power with the kinetic energy it will otherwise waste during applying brakes and when the vehicle is going downhill. Though a normal automobile will burn fuel to power the breaks the hybrids will absorb the energy and store it in their batteries in order to use it when the vehicle needs power. Due to this reason, a hybrid car is able to provide much better mileage per gallon of fuel than regular automobiles.
