Hybrid and electric cars are considered eco-friendly and are designed in such a way to lower gasoline use. Electric cars are entirely dependent upon electricity. Hybrid cars make use of a combination of gas and electric power. The primary source of hybrid cars is the internal combustion engine.

An electric vehicle has rechargeable batteries that deliver power. In a hybrid car, the cells of an electric car do not get recharged unless plugged to some source of energy. Hybrid cars cause less pollution because of the gasoline engine. Hybrids are electric zero-emissions vehicles, while hybrids are low emissions vehicles.

Compared to cars that use gas, hybrid and electric cars are more friendly to the environment. They are also cheaper to manufacture and cheaper to buy. Their purpose is to reduce the amount of gasoline used. Instead of gas, electric cars use electricity. Hybrid gas still uses some gas, but the use is mixed with electrical power.

Electric cars have rechargeable batteries as their source of power, while hybrid cars have a combustion engine, batteries, and DC motors. To recharge the batteries of the electric car, they must be plugged in. In a hybrid car, the energy is stored in the batteries.
