What is a hybrid car!?

Hybrids are a brand of cars that help the environment. These are cars are your typical cars but just modified so it doesn’t harm the environment, but it still does run on gasoline or diesel engine that charges the battery. Also when hybrids slow down, the energy from the wheels turn the motor, which functions as a generator, converting energy normally wasted during coasting and braking into electricity, which is stored in a battery until needed by the electric motor. Hybrids with a diesel engine have the best mileage usually because diesel fuel is less polluting and can actually get better gas mileage.
