Less Work for the Gas/petrol Engine Means Lower Emissions

Hybrid vehicles are equipped with gas/petrol engines that are designed with cutting-edge technologies that reduce the toxic substances in exhaust emissions. The electric motor is also used to reduce the load on the gas/petrol engine while driving, helping to reduce the overall amount of emissions. When driving en EV (electric vehicle) mode, the gas/petrol engine is turned off, meaning that emissions are reduced even more. With the gas/petrol engine stop function, it brings significant benefits in terms of reduced exhaust emissions and improved fuel efficiency when the vehicle stops.
