How a hybrid works
The car has an internal combustion engine, a high-voltage battery and an electric motor. In the «full» hybrid Toyota C-HR, the engines work alternately or together. The crossover starts on an electric motor, and then the internal combustion engine is connected to work. During braking and coasting, kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and charges the battery. This charge is used by the electric motor, which allows the gasoline engine to rest.
The benefits of hybrids are undeniable: they produce less emissions and save fuel when the electric motor is running, and when both engines are connected, the car has more power. In addition, there is no need to look for a charger.
The hybrid operates in three modes that switch automatically: Charge (energy recovery and battery charging), eco (the car selects an environmentally optimal mode) and power (the internal combustion engine or both motors are running).
The driver can activate the EV-mode. It instructs the car to drive exclusively on electric traction and not waste gasoline. To prevent EV mode from disengaging, you need to drive smoothly and do not accelerate more than 50 km / h. So I managed to drive 2.4 km.
