Hybrid cars rely on intricate computerised systems that switch between the engine and electric motor. Not only that, but these systems also ensure the batteries maintain their charge (and that's only the tip of the iceberg of what the system can do). Check out whether 'hybrid cars are a better choice' in one of our recent articles here.
