How does a hybrid car work and what are its characteristics?

Increasing environmental awareness propels that there is an ever-wider offer of more sustainable and environmentally friendly cars.

Currently we can choose between electric cars and hybrid cars. The latter combine an engine that uses gasoline as fuel, with an electric one.

The benefits of the hybrid car and what differentiates it from electric cars is that it has an autonomous propulsion system. This technology is responsible for independently coordinating both engines and the driver does not have to worry about anything.

We at MalagaCar.com offer several models of plug-in hybrids, also called PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle), discover them below.

PHEV – Plug-in hybrids

Plug-in hybrids (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) have both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. The battery has a range of around 50 km. So, on the highway we can use  the traditional engine, while in cities we can move 100% in ecological mode.

New groups with hybrid cars

Below, we present the latest models purchased, as well as the assigned group, to make it easier to find them when looking for Hybrid Car Hire at Malaga airport:

Plug-in hybrids are currently one of the best alternatives to gasoline and diesel, because they can make short journeys in fully electric mode and long journeys without range problems thanks to their hybrid drive.

And, in addition, they benefit from the advantages of the zero label of the Spanish DGT. This is something to take into account with the upcoming implementation of the Low Emissions Zone in Malaga, since this type of vehicle allows us to circulate in the Costa del Sol cities without restrictions, in addition to being able to park for free or with significant discounts.
