What is a Mild Hybrid?

Combining a combustion engine and an electric motor, a mild hybrid is an electrified car that doesn't need to be plugged in or recharged. It stores energy generated by braking with its battery and uses it to boost the engine for added fuel economy. This helps reduce emissions as well.
