if a person owns a hybrid car can they decide when to operate

Customer Question

if a person owns a hybrid car can they decide when to operate it on gasoline or electric or is this done automatically by the workings of the car? In other words can you press a button to operate it on gasoline (petrol) or electricity?

Hi,

Petrol electric hybrid cars will automatically select which power source to use based upon the operating cycle of the vehicle and level of charge in the batteries. There isn't a model I am aware of that enables the driver to select the power source.

I hope this answers your question.

Best Regards
