There are several kinds of hybrid car batteries. The production of Lithium-Ion batteries is growing rapidly. Most of today's hybrid cars use Lithium-Ion batteries as one of their power supply.

Toyota Vitz, a small compact car which is only available in Japan, uses Lithium-Ion battery packs to power the air conditioner, lights in the gauges, head lights, and the heater while the car is in idle, allowing the car to save gasoline.

The battery pack gives the vehicle 105 horsepower and reduces the car's emission to zero.

Hybrid Car Battery - The Raw Truth

A hybrid car battery is like any other battery. As mentioned above, hybrid car batteries work together with the car's gasoline engine as well as the electrical motor. As the hybrid electric vehicle battery technology progresses, more and more types of hybrid car batteries emerge.

Exclusive Summary About Pros and Cons of Buying a Hybrid By Gina E Clark

As everyone knows, hybrid vehicles get better gas mileage than non-hybrids. Hybrid vehicles also help the environment by reducing emissions that cause global warming. Hybrid cars are hard to resell. Hybrid vehicles need special parts that are not sold by all companies, as non-hybrid car parts are. The replacement parts for hybrid vehicles tend to be much more expensive as well.

This means that repairs to hybrid vehicles must be done by those with more specialized training than the average mechanic has, making the repair price higher for hybrids than non-hybrids.

A benefit of buying a new hybrid vehicle is that you may be eligible for a tax break on your federal income taxes of up to $3,000.
