Crucial Hybrid Parts
Hybrid vehicles have many parts that are either different from or don’t exist in other cars, trucks, and SUVs. Here are some of the most crucial hybrid parts.
Hybrid batteries store energy and supply electricity to the electric motor. A system recharges them in the vehicle that holds energy without needing to be plugged into a power source. Hybrid batteries typically last 120k or longer and can be very expensive to replace.
Hybrid vehicles combine a small internal combustion engine with an electric motor. Both parts work together to power your vehicle. The combustion engine is smaller and lighter than that in other vehicles and produces fewer emissions. The electric motor draws energy from and returns energy to the battery.
Vehicle Charging Control System
This computer-controlled electronic unit regulates charging, monitors temperature, and controls the operation of the electric drive motor. This system is often connected to the cooling system.
Regenerative Braking System
All brakes create friction and heat. With a regenerative braking system, that heat is converted into energy and stored in the rechargeable battery.
