The hybrid vehicles we know today got their start earlier than quite a few of the alternative technologies we consider ‘modern advances.’ In 1915, the Dual Power was designed by Woods Motor Vehicle. Below 15mph an electric motor drove the car, while an internal combustion engine drove the car beyond the point. This is not such a far cry from the hybrids of today, though today’s tech has allowed for greater range and durability of the systems that drive our vehicles at low speeds.

A major advancement in the hybrid market has been harnessing the energy that is wasted when slowing in conventional cars. Hybrids today generate power from the energy generated by braking and store the power for later use at lower speeds. Perhaps the newest development among the hybrid market is the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. PHEVs can be plugged in to provide enough power to operate the vehicle over extended distances on stored energy. As hybrid cars continue to increase in popularity, more and more questions are bound to be asked concerning the lifetime cost of hybrid vehicles. For the time being, it is likely that more toxic emissions are emitted in the creation of hybrid vehicles than conventional vehicles. Hopefully, as hybrid technology develops, this can change.

Resources

Hybrid Vehicles at Wikipedia
While Wikipedia has several pages dedicated to the different types of hybrid vehicles, this page is a nice portal to all of them. The site is certainly full of information concerning the historical development and application of multiple power source vehicles, but also a decent bit of recent technological discussion. Be sure to take a look at the ‘Forefathers’ section for today’s hybrid electric vehicles.

How Stuff Works
If you’re unfamiliar with How Stuff Works, this is a great introduction. This page is all about explaining how complex mechanisms and concepts work in easy language. The page has pictures, videos, and diagrams to describe the precise workings of hybrid vehicles.

Hybrid Center
The Union of Concerned Scientists brings us the site to showcase and debate the viability of hybrid technology in today’s cars. The page has a discussion of the most popular hybrids on the market and their merits. Check back as they continue to update the site as more hybrids hit the market.

Hybrids at Autoblog
Autoblog might not have great pages dedicated to the specific industries for alternative fuels, but their hybrid page sort of covers it all, and we’ll take that. Why? Because Autoblog is simply the best in the business. They cover virtually everything that’s actually worth covering. Most of the hybrid page is covered with news about the much-hyped Tesla Roadster these days, but when anything significant happens, you can bet they know about it.
