    Yes, they do.

    Hybrid as a word means: something that is powered by more than one source of power. And that's exactly how hybrid cars work. They have both a combustion engine and electric motor(s). Depending on what type of car, either both of the motors work together, or one of the two acts as an additional source of power.

    Oh, and a hybrid car doesn't necessarily run on solar power. In fact, as far as I know, most hybrid cars don't run on solar power.

    i imagine putting photo voltaic panels on a hybrid electric powered automobile makes a tremendous number of expertise. to boot the initial value and ongoing upkeep of the gadget it makes use of a renewable source of means to charge and make more effective the variety of the motorized vehicle. If the hybrid could also plug into and get charged from a photo voltaic powered gadget or an worry-free kinfolk contributors socket then that is even more effective. The link lower than is going to a company that from the images has a fairly slick integrated photo voltaic roof for the Prius and some different somewhat clunky variations for different automobiles.
