Series Hybrid Car

In a series hybrid, the electric motor does all the work of propelling the vehicle. While a series hybrid vehicle does have a gasoline engine, the engine does not have a direct connection to the drive train; it is used only to power the generator. At the time of this writing there are no true series hybrids in mass production, although the Toyota Prius is a blend of series and parallel hybrid configurations.
