THE MARKET FOR HYBRID PRODUCTS:
Hybrid Vehicle Types:
- Parallel Hybrid
The electric motor(s) and gasoline engine are coupled in a shared gearbox that combines the two power sources in this most popular arrangement. It could be an automatic, a manual, or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Toyota Prius and Chevrolet Volt both feature a power-split CVT, which is a popular hybrid transmission. The key parameters that define how a parallel hybrid accelerates, sounds, and feels are the transmission type and the size of the gasoline engine. Toyota, Lexus, Hyundai, Kia, Ford, Honda, Lincoln, Nissan, and Infiniti are among the brands that adopt the parallel design.
