You’ve seen them in the news and on the roads. So what exactly are hybrid cars, anyway? In this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby take you under the hood to see how they work. In this educational, animated movie you’ll learn how a hybrid combines the engine of a petrol-powered car with the motor of an electric car in one high-tech package. If you’re looking for a car that doesn’t cost a lot to fill up at the petrol pump, and that doesn’t need to spend hours plugged in, then a hybrid car is probably what you need! You’ll discover how unique features like regenerative braking help increase fuel efficiency and make low mileage a thing of the past. And you’ll explore why these same features make hybrid cars so friendly to the environment. You won’t even have to get your hands dirty!
