The first hybrid  campervan on the market for you to hire out. The Beta Hybrid  has 3 seats rather than 4 as well as a hybrid engine which means you can save fuel and its better for the environment. The Hybrid Spaceship has ‘Hybrid Synergy Drive which automates the changes between drive by the petrol motor and drive by the electric motor depending on the amount of power needed and the current charge in the batteries.  It also regulates the amount of power used by the petrol motor to charge the batteries and directs the energy from regenerative sources braking back to energy creation.
