Description

Hybrid vehicles are an intermediary solution between conventionnal vehicles and electric vehicles. The idea is making the thermic motor run with a slightly harder charge than necessary, and use this extra energy to charge batteries. Since a motor's efficiency increases quickly at low charge, this superfluous energy is almost free. This is true for "fuel motors", "gas oil motors'" efficiency changing much less with the charge.
