A 'series' hybrid electric vehicle uses the electric motor to provide added power to the internal combustion engine when it needs it most, for example, in stop-and-go driving and acceleration.

Advantages of hybrids:

  • Reduced fuel consumption and tailpipe emissions

Challenges of hybrids:

  • Complexity of two powertrains
  • Component availability--batteries, powertrains, power electronics
  • Higher initial cost
