Q: What is a hybrid vehicle and why should I consider one for my next vehicle purchase?
A: Any vehicle that combines multiple power sources for movement is considered a hybrid. Hybrid vehicles on the market today use an electric motor and an internal combustion engine for propulsion. Hybrids combine the convenience of a gasoline-burning car and the efficiency of an electric car into one reliable mode of transportation. The internal combustion engine on a hybrid recharges the batteries as well as supplements the electric motor to move the vehicle. Consider buying a hybrid if you want to lower your fuel bill and reduce harmful emissions.
