Hybrid Cars

Hybrid cars are commonly somewhat incorrectly thought of as only vehicles with both a piston engine and an electric motor. However, a hybrid car can be that, or any combonation of two different sources of power. For example, if a vehicle is designed to be powered by an electric motor, and there are a hydrogen fuel cell and a gasoline-powered engine on board to recharge the batteries, this would be a hybrid car.
