There are three different types of hybrids and each works in a different way. 1) Parallel hybrid cars are the most common type of hybrid, and the Toyota Prius is the most widely known example. The car's wheels can be powered in three different ways: either directly by the engine, by the electric motor alone, or by both power sources working together. Whenever you decelerate or use the brakes, the regenerative braking system produces electricity and stores it in the battery for use later on. The battery is big enough that the electric motor can power the car for up to 1.25 miles. 2) Range extender hybrid cars only use their conventional engine to produce electricity for a generator that recharges the batteries. The engine never drive the car, it only produces energy for the electric motor. The BMW i3 with Ranger Extender is one of the most popular examples. These hybrids are also categorized as either strong or mild depending on the amount of battery power they have. With more battery capacity, strong hybrids can drive further than mild ones on electric power only. 3) Plug-in hybrids as the name implies can by plugged into an electric outlet to recharge their batteries, as well as being charged on the move. Effectively, they are a halfway house between conventional hybrids and full electric vehicles. Although they have a conventional engine, they also have larger batteries than regular hybrids and can drive longer distances on electric power alone - up to 30 miles in some cases.

With so many cars on the market, one is perfect for you out of the 400 or more choices. Once you find the car that fulfills your every need, an emotional connection may well form whether you like it or not. Forget the number of models available, the number of body styles alone can be overwhelming: coupes, convertibles, sedans, hatchbacks, station wagon, crossovers, SUVs, and minivans. Coupes and convertibles are typically the most expressive designs, but restricted access to the back seat seriously limits their practicality. Sedans are okay if there are kids in the picture or in the near-future plan since four doors are a likely requirement compared to the difficulty of climbing into and out from coupes. If you add another door bringing the total to five, then you're looking at hatchbacks and station wagons which offer SUV-like space without the dynamic and fuel-economy compromises of heavier vehicles. Jack up the ground clearance of hatchback or station wagon and you have a crossover or SUV. Of course, the higher seating position of a SUV is something many people enjoy, for its increased visibility and for the ease of entry and exit as the seat is at a more natural height. Minivans is the perfect family vehicle. Those with large families who routinely haul five or more people, there is no vehicle short of a school bus that will better accommodate six, seven, or eight passengers. So start buying a car by considering a series of questions. What kind of car do I need? What size car do I need? Do I need all-wheel drive? How much power do I need? What about diesels, hybrids, and electrics?
