Once I found out how the battery worked I was concerned if it’s disposal would pose an environmental problem. If ti was a problem we were then back to square one. Because my big interest in the hybrid is how it can help our environment. I started looking through the research I had and on different website’s to see if I could find my answer. I had a hard time finding it but I stumbled across a web site that had frequently asked questions about hybrid cars and that was one of them. I found out that hybrid battery packs are designed to last for the lifetime of the car, somewhere between 150,000 and 200,000 miles and probably aa whole lot longer. Hybrids use NiMH batteries, not the environmentally problematic rechargeable nickel cadmium. Nickel Metal Hydride
Although the environmentally beneficial factors that come into play with electric and hybrid electric vehicles, drivers always enjoy the advantage of minimal gas usage. Electric vehicles rely only on electric power to operate. Any outlet with the proper voltage can be used to charge up your electric car, and get you from point A to point B while completely eliminating your gas expenses. Similarly to the electric vehicle, the electric hybrid runs different than your traditional car. The electric hybrid vehicle uses both electric and gas, with not external power source needed. The electric hybrid car will use you automobiles moment while running on gas to charge up its electric power sources.
