Do hybrid cars get their power 50/50 from both engines?

    Not quite. It depends on what type of hybrid you are driving.

    In a parallel hybrid, the system is close to what you are describing. The car has a fuel tank, which is used to power the engine, and a set of batteries that power the electric side. They both work into the transmission, which is used to steer.

    In a series hybrid, the fuel is used to power the engine which turns on the electric motor and then does not power anything else once the electricity has been turned on. The gasoline side never directly powers the car, it just powers what’s powering the car when it is initially engaged.
