Hey there everyone, new guy here.

I'm looking into how hybrids are manufactured in auto plants. I want to know if there are any recycled materials being used, if they are made on the same assembly lines as the rest of the cars being made, what happens to the batteries when they don't hold a charge anymore, and any other information like that.

I know that hybrids are supposed to save fuel, but are they conserving raw materials that the cars made up. I know for a fact that MB S-Class is build with recycled materials, and an oil efficient method of production.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
