What Is a Hybrid Electric Vehicle?
Simply put, a Hybrid Electric Vehicle works more efficiently than a regular vehicle because it has two sources of power - a supercharged 2.5 litre engine and a 15kW electric motor. Rather than relying on internal combustion alone, a hybrid uses both combustion and battery power to drive the wheels. What does this mean for you? Well it means fuel consumption is reduced by 15%* without sacrificing power and performance.
