Hybrid cars are known to save fuel, but how much? I don't know, if you don't know. Let me ask you one more question. There are all kinds of hybrid cars on the market, which are hybrid, plug-in and additive. What are they?
At present, hybrid cars on the market can be roughly divided into three categories. The first type is called petrol-electric hybrid power, which represents Toyota twin engines. This technology is actually the most complex, the principle is to connect the gasoline engine and electric motor battery through a very complex way, the two power sources work together, technically the most complex, the technical threshold is the highest, at present this technology is basically Toyota and Honda alone.
The second type is called plug-in hybrid, or PHEV. PHEV these four words you must have seen many, actually plug-in electric hybrid technology difficulty is very low, its working principle is very simple, in a common fuel in the car and fitted with electric motor and battery pack, simple coordinate the efforts of the gasoline engine and electric motor, it's done, almost no technical difficulties, so this is also on the market at present most hybrid species.
The third, relatively rare, is called a plug-in electric vehicle. This car is a pure electric car by definition. It has a gasoline engine, but that gasoline engine does not drive the car, but only generates electricity for the battery pack. Simply put, a plug-in electric vehicle is a pure electric vehicle with a gasoline generator. It's a relatively small number of cars, you don't see a lot of them.
In theory, of course, a plug-in electric car is the most fuel-efficient, because it is a pure electric car, its fuel consumption is only used for power generation, which means it can use hundreds of milliliters of single cylinder or dual cylinder machine (who dares to compare fuel consumption with such a small engine?). . But considering the size of the car, we'll skip it for the moment.
It can be said that, if the most fuel-efficient words, the technology is the most complex, the theory of the least fuel-efficient hybrid oil and electricity, but is the most fuel-efficient. In addition, this technology is by far the most comfortable and convenient among all new energy vehicles with the lowest failure rate, the lowest maintenance cost and the most comfortable use. Toyota and Honda have spent countless hours, manpower and financial resources behind all this.
