HYBRID CARS Welcome to the world of advanced technological cars
INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Any vehicle is a hybrid when it combines two or more sources of power. Hybrid cars run off a rechargeable battery and gasoline. </li></ul><ul><li>Hybrid engines are built smaller to accommodate the 99% of time when not going up hill or accelerating quickly. It uses the battery to provide extra acceleration power when needed. </li></ul><ul><li>When the car is stopped, hybrid gasoline motors can shut off and run off their electric motor and battery. </li></ul>
INTRODUCTION <ul><li>Hybrid cars are often lighter and more aerodynamic; tires are often stiffer and inflated higher to reduce drag. </li></ul><ul><li>Hybrid cars often recover braking energy and use it to charge the battery </li></ul>

ENVIRONMENT Driving Trends A massive increase in car use: more people driving more cars on longer trips
ENVIRONMENT Global Warming Experts say that rising tides in the South Pacific, as on Tuvula pictured above, are caused by global warming. Carbon dioxide from cars is a leading culprit. What effect could global warming have on the world?
ENVIRONMENT Health Effects Personal masks are becoming a common sight in urban areas with the worst air quality.
ENVIRONMENT Pollutants Every day, you are driving in and through—and contributing to—a lethal cocktail of air pollution.
