HEV (HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLE) SYSTEM
The HYUNDAI Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) uses both the gasoline engine and the electric motor for power.The elec-
tric motor is run by a 270V high-voltage HEV battery.
Depending on the driving conditions, the HEV computer selectively operates between the engine and the electric motor
or even both at the same time.
Fuel efficiency increases when the engine is off at idle, or when the vehicle is driven by the electric motor with the HEV
The HEV battery charge must be maintained, so at times the engine will come on even at idle to act as a generator.
Charging also occurs when decelerating or by regenerative braking.
