Hybrid Pickup Trucks
There are three pickup trucks available with a hybrid engine system in the US market. Even with the help of the hybrid system their miles per gallon figures are at around 20 mpg at best. The hybrid system in these vehicles improves the combined mpg figures around 2 mpg. This actually shows that there is something fundamentally wrong with the engines of these (and other) pickup trucks; they consume far too much fuel. In the below table hybrid pickup trucks are listed from best mpg to worst.

Hybrid Technology
In a hybrid vehicle a gas engine is used together with an electric motor to improve fuel economy. Energy normally wasted during braking and coasting are used to charge the battery. The electric motor is used to assist internal combustion engine during acceleration, low speed driving or hill climbing to compensate for the lesser efficiency of the internal engines in these type of situations.
