How Hybrid Vehicles Work
Hybrid vehicles combine gasoline power with electric power. Since the power’s combined, a hybrid car is more fuel-efficient and, thus, eco-friendly. So if you’re looking to save at the pump for your I-90 commute or drive to an arts venue, you may be interested in a hybrid car.
Traditional Hybrid Systems vs. Plug-In Hybrid Systems
There are two different Honda hybrid systems. Here’s a closer look:
- Traditional Honda Hybrid Systems – The powertrain works through a combination of a gas combustion engine and an electric motor, or set of motors. This motor (or set of motors) works through battery power. The gas engine helps generate the power in the battery. The electric motor boosts the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Redmond drivers can find the Traditional Honda Hybrid Systems on vehicles like the Honda Civic Hybrid, and even the Honda Accord Hybrid.
- Honda Plug-In Hybrid Systems – Consider plug-in hybrids a step in a different direction. Plug-in hybrid vehicles run on electric power for a while. So, if you’re driving to work at the Microsoft Office, you may not use gas at all! But if you’re going on an extended road trip down I-5, the gasoline engine kicks in, and works with the electric power. At this longer range, the plug-in hybrid works like a traditional hybrid car. You can find Plug-In Hybrid Systems on vehicles like the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.
