    Hybrid cars operate on a dual mode where the electric motor, powered by batteries, takes over once the gasoline engine has gotten the vehicle up to speed. Braking and deceleration generates energy that is used to charge the electric motor’s batteries. porno gay

    Hybrid cars also increase energy efficiency because of their more aerodynamic shapes. Tires used by hybrid vehicles run on a higher pressure and are made of a more rigid material than general car tires. tradestation indicators

    The biggest advantage with hybrid cars is that they are able to generate power with the kinetic energy it will otherwise waste during applying brakes and when the vehicle is going downhill. Though a normal automobile will burn fuel to power the breaks the hybrids will absorb the energy and store it in their batteries in order to use it when the vehicle needs power..nigerian stock
