The hybrid vehicles can be categorized under 3 types:

  1. Hybrid electric vehicle- these vehicles use multiple propulsion systems to deliver motive power. The gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles are the most popular ones. They use gasoline (petrol) and electric batteries for the energy. The motors of this vehicle are relatively small, but you cannot feel the difference while driving the vehicle.
  2. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle-earlier most plug-in hybrids in the U.S. were adaptations of conventional hybrid electric vehicles. In December 2015, almost 500,000 highway-capable plug-in hybrid electric cars have hit the roads in all corners of the globe.
  3. Pedal-assisted electric hybrid vehicle-these are seen in very small vehicles. The two commercially made vehicles based on this technology are the TWIKE and Sinclair C5.

Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles are the best to save the environment. These green cars do not emit smoke and pollute the atmosphere. The Chevrolet Volt is considered the ultimate “green” car. They are costly but do not perform as per their worth. If you consider the pollution factor, then these vehicles may appear to save the nature apparently, but if you estimate the pollution caused during the industrial production of electric vehicle batteries, then their greenness diminishes. Yet, these cars are every day coming up with new technologies and there is a hope that in future these cars would replace all standard cars in function today.

Diesel Vehicles

The cars with diesel engines are not only a good option as compared to the standard gas engines in large trucks like the F-350, but also gives better gas mileage. Nowadays a lot of car owners who come to buy cars at Flemings ultimate garage prefer to spend on diesel cars.
