a hybrid with a backup gas-powered motor
 
GM Takes on Tesla

Quote:

Despite many duds in its past, GM also has the chops to build great cars, as just about any Corvette owner will attest. Even the Volt (which is really a hybrid with a backup gas-powered motor) has a core coterie of devoted owners who say the car is reliable and enjoyable, especially when motoring purely on electric power, which costs about one-fourth as much as gasoline.
Really, Rick Newman?

1) Having a following doesn't make a car great. Edsels are prized collectibles today.

2) It's a hybrid because it has batteries and a backup gas-powered motor to charge them! If it was a hybrid without the backup gas-powered motor, you'd probably call it a tribrid with the ICE.
