A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is a car which combines a combustion engine with an electric propulsion system. The electric powertrain is intended to achieve better fuel economy. Modern HEVs make use of efficiency-improving technologies such as regenerative braking, which converts the vehicle's kinetic energy into electric energy to charge the battery, rather than wasting it as heat energy as conventional brakes do.
