Of course. Though you are right; many people don’t think about the fact that hybrid cars can take just as much energy to build as less-efficient cars. Like any other car, a hybrid car takes a significant amount of electricity and other sources of power to assemble. However, it takes 13 percent — at most — of the vehicle’s lifetime energy to make the car, which in context isn’t too bad when you consider a hybrid’s potential efficiency.
Any car also ultimately requires significant mining, for the iron, copper, bauxite (aluminum ore), titanium, beryllium, barite, neodymium, lithium, and more that go into an automobile. Then there’s the oil and/or natural gas that goes into the plastic throughout the vehicle, as well as in the synthetic rubber in the tires.
