Hybrid Service and Repair in Borden, PEI
A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is a type of hybrid vehicle that combines a conventional internal combustion engine system with an electric propulsion system. Modern HEVs make use of efficiency-improving technologies such as regenerative brakes. Many HEVs reduce idle emissions by shutting down the engine at idle and restarting it when needed; this is known as a start-stop system. A hybrid-electric produces fewer tailpipe emissions than a comparably sized gasoline car since the hybrid’s gasoline engine is usually smaller than that of a gasoline-powered vehicle.
Ferdinand Porsche developed the Lohner-Porsche in 1901. But hybrid electric vehicles did not become widely available until the release of the Toyota Prius in Japan in 1997, followed by the Honda Insight in 1999. Initially, hybrid seemed unnecessary due to the low cost of gasoline. Worldwide increases in the price of petroleum caused many automakers to release hybrids in the late 2000s; they are now perceived as a core segment of the automotive market of the future.
