First know the technology of petrol engine
A petrol-powered engine or an internal combustion engine primarily runs on petrol. In this, the process of burning fuel takes place in the combustion chamber of the engine, after which power is transferred to the wheels through the driveshaft. The smoke of burnt petrol comes out into the atmosphere through the exhaust pipe. Some examples of petrol powered cars are Maruti Suzuki Alto, Hyundai Verna, Hyundai i20, Tata Nexon (Petrol) and other similar cars. Most of the vehicles in the Indian market run on petrol. They cost less than hybrid, diesel and electric cars.

What is Hybrid Engine?
The hybrid car gets an electric motor and battery along with the regular engine. It is an electric drivetrain combination of all three, which works together. Most of the hybrid cars sold in India mainly get a petrol engine. Whenever the car slows down, it automatically shifts to the electric drivetrain. The hybrid motor enhances the performance while using less petrol. The battery in the car is charged by the regenerating braking system. In some cars, it can also be charged with an external charger. The biggest advantage of hybrid cars is that they give good mileage.
