Hybrid vs Electric vs Gas

How Gas Engines Work

How Gas Works

In gas engines, gas and air are pulled into a combustion chamber. A piston then compresses the air-gas mixture, and it is ignited by a spark plug causing ignition of the fuel. The combustion force pushes the piston down generating the power the vehicle needs to move.

How Hybrid Vehicles Work

How Hybrids Work

Hybrid utilize both electric and gas powered engines to generate the energy needed to propel the vehicle. Excess energy generated from the engine is also utilize to recharge the batteries as needed. On the electric side, the energy stored in the batteries power an electric motor that is able to turn the wheels on the vehicle. In a hybrid, the vehicle is able to switch back and forth as energy needs change.

How Electric Vehicles Work

How Electric Works

Electric vehicles are propelled solely by the electric motor. The difference between different manufacturers is the ability to generate energy beyond what is contained in the batteries. With the Chevrolet Volt, for example, the batteries can be recharged while you are driving through a gasoline generator. This extends your range, while giving you the full benefits of an electric engine the majority of the time.
