Hybrid vehicle refers to a vehicle that has two or more sources of energy. There are two types of hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs), series and parallel. In a series hybrid, all of the vehicle power is provided from one source. For example, with an internal-combustion/electric series hybrid, the electric motor drives the vehicle from the battery pack and the internal-combustion engine powers a generator that charges the battery. In a parallel hybrid, power is delivered through both paths. In an internal-combustion/electric parallel hybrid, both the electric motor and the internal-combustion engine power the vehicle.
