It is a little confusing. The notion of a hybrid is that both the gas engine and electric motor drive the car, and, usually, that some power from braking is captured as well.The Volt uses the gas engine to charge the batteries. The gas engine isn't connected to the wheels, and so it never runs the car directly.
