How Honda Hybrid Cars Work

2018 Honda Clarity Plugin Hyrbid Driving

Honda hybrid cars work from two different systems: Traditional Honda hybrid systems and Honda Plug-In hybrid systems. Both hybrid systems, however, mix electric power with gasoline power. So, if you’re looking for an environmentally friendly and fuel efficient car around Troy, then it’s worth knowing how your next Honda hybrid car works.

Honda’s Two Hybrid Systems

  • Honda Plug-In Hybrid Systems – Honda Plug-In Hybrid Systems are a step in a new direction. Plug-In Hybrid cars work on electric for an extended period. Later, in extended range driving, the gasoline engine kicks in, working with the electric motors. If you’re looking to experience Honda’s innovative plug-in hybrid systems, keep your eyes open for the Honda Clarity Plug-In.
  • Traditional Hybrid Systems – This system uses a set of motors. During ordinary driving to work in Troy, the gasoline engine flips on the generator. The generator then produces electricity for the hybrid motor. During extended range driving, the gasoline power works in tandem with the hybrid car’s electric system, thus improving the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. You’ll find traditional hybrid systems in Honda vehicles like the Honda Accord Hybrid.
