What makes a vehicle a hybrid? Hybrid vehicles typically have two modes of power production; conventional combustion engines and electric motors powered by batteries. In addition to all the systems of a regular combustion vehicle, hybrids have a sophisticated electronics system to ensure efficient operation of charging and battery power displacement, including separate batteries, electric motors, and monitoring systems. The main difference is the battery system and services that the system takes special training and diagnostic equipment like our technicians have here at Ortega Car Care.
Models The first car that pops into your head when you hear the word “hybrid” is probably the Toyota Prius. While in many ways the Prius paved the way for hybrid vehicles, these days hybrid technology has been adopted by nearly every automaker, for all styles of vehicles. Full-sized SUVs like the GM Yukon, mid-size SUVs like the Toyota Highlander, Sedans like the Ford Fusion or Honda Accord, and even many full-size pickups are now being offered with hybrid systems and technology.
Issues with Hybrids Overall, hybrid vehicles have proven to be very reliable; the systems are complex but based on technology that is straightforward and has been understood for a long time. When the electric motors are in use, they supplement the work that would normally be provided by the combustion engine. However, hybrid vehicles have more parts, meaning there are also more parts to replace eventually.
Hybrid Specialists Having your Hybrid serviced by technicians trained in the field is extremely important. A typical mechanic isn't likely to have the experience and equipment needed to properly care for and diagnose issues with a hybrid vehicle, or maintain it in such a way that prevents problems from arising. Our technicians have the knowledge, ability, and equipment necessary to maintain and repair any make and model of hybrid vehicles. The only part of hybrid vehicles we do not specialize in is the battery pack or testing of the batteries.
