The History of the Hybrid Car: An Evolution for the Future

Because of the desire of having a automobile wherein everyone can consume less gas and will not contribute to the air pollution, the hybrid vehicle was finally created to meet this end. And due to the rapid advancements in the gasoline engine, the hybrid car has become extremely popular.

A hybrid vehicle is a means of transportation using two fuel sources; it uses a rechargeable fossil fuel storage system found on board and a fuelled gasoline source as the automobile's driving force. More information about driving force can be found here: http://malaysia.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091207173326AAqWCuZ. The hybrid automobile pollutes less and uses less resources.

Back in 1899, Ferdinand Porsche have developed and led the way to the very first working hybrid-electric automobile. Other people followed suit in Ferdinand Porsche's invention. Many people who became interested in the hybrid-vehicle concept have been continually making hybrid automobiles.  However, there was no major vehicle manufacturer who invested in the hybrid concept and mass produced hybrid automobiles until the late twentieth century. The hybrid technology was mainly utilized in developing diesel-electric submarines during that interim period.

The diesel-electric submarines mainly operate very much the same as a hybrid vehicle. However, the submarines main goal was to conserve oxygen rather than spend less resources. During the later years, submarines have evolved and have begun using the nuclear gasoline as a substitute for diesel.
