Hybrid or not[edit]

The article contains a paragraph questioning hybrid nature of the new car.

Multiple sources, including the official GORD news release, indicated that
the cars are hybrid. However the entire energy comes from the original
oil from the car's gasoline tank. The abovementioned collected heat
can be utilised or stored differently, but it still would originate
from the chemical energy of the source fuel. The new car features a
decrease in heat and chemical emissions, but is technically only
powered by a single source of energy.

The paragraph is my own point of view, and I tried to provide it with an explanation. If it's debatable or you think it's wrong, we may want to discuss it here. --Gryllida 11:55, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Off the top of my head, it's been my understanding (I maybe know where to look for info on this point, when I've got a chance) that the sort of cars called "hybrid" are usually like this, ultimately powered entirely from gasoline. The en.wp article, which of course I don't take at face value, seems to support this understanding of what is meant by "hybrid". It's definitely a point to understand clearly, though it does seem likely that paragraph is POV. --Pi zero (talk) 12:33, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hybrid electric vehicle confirms what you said: technically a second non-fuel engine is sufficient to classify a car as hybrid nomatter what energy it uses; I have edited the paragraph accordingly. -Gryllida 12:59, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I have requested properly licensed photos from GODR by e-mail; if that's unavailable within twelve hours we may proceed publishing without photos. This should not affect review process and it may be started meantime. Thanks, Gryllida 13:17, 30 November 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
