What Is a Hybrid Battery?

As you may know, a hybrid vehicle combines the functionality of a gas-powered motor and an electric hybrid battery. The battery is rechargeable and provides enough power to keep even a large vehicle running. Every major car maker, including Acura, Buick, Cadillac, and Chevrolet, offer hybrid vehicles in their lineups. 

Hybrid vehicles offer the best of owning an electric car and a car run on fuel. They offer a very impressive fuel economy, and this is because of the hybrid battery that powers the car. An electric engine become much more functional when a gas-powered engine is added to it; these two components combine to produce the best efficiency and reliability. 

A hybrid vehicle utilizes a 12-volt lead-acid battery and gasoline like a traditional vehicle while also pulling energy from an electric battery. The vehicle can switch seamlessly between power sources, so seamlessly, in fact, that the driver isn't even aware of the transition. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the electric battery recharges. This makes hybrid vehicles 20%-35% more fuel-efficient than traditional vehicles.
