Parallel vs. Series Hybrid

There are a couple of different types of Honda hybrids available around Gretna, a parallel and series hybrid. Both work in similar ways, the gas engine and electric motor work together to power you through Lincoln. Let’s check out the differences between the parallel and series hybrid below:

Parallel Hybrid

This Honda hybrid configuration is where both the electric and gasoline motors are connected to the transmission, and the two power sources together propel the vehicle. This is perhaps the most common type of hybrid available.

Series Hybrid

A series hybrid is where the electric motor is paired with the transmission, and the gas engine is not. The electric motor is the vehicle’s main power source, while the gas motor acts as a power source for the electric motor.

How Do Hybrid Cars Work?

Unlike traditional vehicles, hybrid cars use both a gasoline and electric motor to power the vehicle. Often, the electric motor kicks in when at slow speeds, such as in the city, and then the gas motor kicks on at a certain speed. This saves gas, as you don’t burn fuel waiting in traffic or at red lights, not to mention, it’s much kinder to the environment as well!
