The electric motor propelled the vehicle. These were called "series" hybrids. The little little gasoline engine's job was to charge the batteries, making the series hybrid more of a pure electric vehicle than not.

The History Of Hybrid Cars

Exclusive summary about History of Hybrid Cars By Thomas Jones

Ever curious how exactly hybrid cars became the economic revelation they are today? Although there are conflicting views as to which hybrid came first, the actual hybrid car developed by Porsche utilized a similar engine as in conventional vehicles today to rotate a generator that would power electric motors, located in the actual car wheel's hubs.

It seemed that electric and hybrid cars would be the way to travel, and in 1900, the "voiturette," the first of these hybrids, was made by Pieper and was very similar to the hybrids we already know. There was even a reliability test in 1902 to see which would fare better, a hybrid, or steam-powered or gas-powered vehicles.

There were also hybrid trucks that were used from 1910 to 1918, and still, hybrid cars offered in 1916 could still reach 48 miles to the gallon, although speeds were much lower. Finally, in 1997, manufacturers Toyota and Audi premiered their hybrid cars to mixed reactions.
