I don't think that hybrid cars are so ecological. Because at the first we haven't got ways to utilize batteries and at the second when you charge them heat pollution is on.

I do not understand what you mean by "Because at the first we haven't got ways to utilize batteries". We utilize the batteries by powering the motor(s). Also "heat pollution" is pretty much negligible. The most serious ecological issue with electric and hybrid cars is the ecological damage done by mining and processing the Lithium to make the batteries in the first place, plus any carbon footprint from the generation of the electricity used to charge the batteries.

In other words, the ecological issues unique to electric/hybrid cars are mostly battery related, but not really in the terms you describe.


Have Fun!
