What is a hybrid system?

The hybrid system used combines a diesel engine and lithium ion batteries to provide the electric motor with power to move. During start-up, the battery power is used, and the diesel engine works to move the generator during acceleration. This combination makes the motor operate. During deceleration, the motor is used as a generator, and the brake energy is converted to electricity and stored back in the batteries.
