Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) combine power from both an internal combustion engine and a high-voltage electric source. The vehicle is run by a battery powered electric source, which is charged by the internal combustion engine. When the vehicle reaches the limit of electric drive the internal combustion engine takes over, increasing driver confidence that the vehicle will take them where they need to go. HEV’s can deliver more than 20% fuel efficiency when compared to…

How Hybrid Electric Vehicles Work! (Animation)

Hybrid electric vehicles have existed for a long time. Already at the beginning of the 20th century, Henri Pieper and Ferdinand Porsche developed hybrid electric vehicles. Today, efforts are being made, in particular in order to lower CO2 emissions, which have increased over the past years. Moreover, because of the low energy density of Li-ion batteries, purely electric vehicles are not yet an alternative to the traditional vehicles with combustion engines. Contents 1) Historical view…
