What is a hybrid vehicle?

A hybrid vehicle is an automobile powered by an engine assisted by an electric motor.

Hybrid vehicles
Combining fuel efficiency, low running cost and performance

In a Hybrid vehicle, the electric motor assists the engine to help reduce fuel consumption in standing starts and accelerations.
This means that compared to a regular car of the same size, a hybrid is cheaper to run.

Furthermore, electric motors deliver maximum torque from zero rpm for powerful, exhilarating standing starts and added power for acceleration.

Combining fuel efficiency, and driving performance with environmental performance through reduced fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions: that is what hybrid vehicles are all about.
