Why Hybrid ?
In this age of global warming, electric and hybrid cars are gaining in popularity as an easy-to-use way of reducing your carbon footprint. While an all-electric car draws all of its power from an electric motor, a hybrid car uses two power sources. A conventional gasoline engine, when paired with an electric motor, emits less pollutants and also increases the mileage.

The battery uses a rechargeable energy storage system. The technological advancement has allowed hybrid cars to be used as 'fun' cars, while maintaining the harmful emissions associated with conventional gasoline-only engines to a low level. Hybrid cars have now become a common sight in many parts of the world.
