What is a Full Hybrid Car?

So what is the difference between the mild hybrid vs. full hybrid? A full hybrid vehicle uses a combustion engine and an electric engine to drive, both at the same time or independent from each other. Although they’re the most common type of hybrid vehicles, the battery size holds small amounts of electricity, meaning that it needs a combustion engine. This makes full hybrid vehicles the best options for longer distance drivers. 

Full hybrid vehicles also use regenerative braking to improve efficiency. Whether a petrol or diesel car’s kinetic energy energy would not be used slowing down, a hybrid vehicle’s kinetic energy is stored in the battery, making the vehicle perfect for Camp Lejeune and Richlands pages. 

What is a Mild Hybrid Car?

Like full hybrids, mild hybrids use an electric motor alongside a combustion engine, but a full hybrid vehicle cannot run on electric power alone. The electric motor inside of vehicle is attached directly to an engine or transmission, which gives the car a boost when accelerating. 

Like full hybrid vehicles, mild hybrid vehicles use regerative braking, which uses kinetic energy to allow for smoother performance. The benefits of a mild hybrid car is that it is more affordable for Sneads Ferry owners, and are closer to gas-powered vehicles if that is your preference.
