A hybrid vehicle in which an engine can always be driven in a highly efficient region in accordance with the required running load. An engine torque of a combustion engine 2, in which an efficiency characteristic can be selected from those in a lean state and in a stoichiometric state, and a motor torque of a generator/motor 3 are transmitted to a driving output system as a driving torque. The combustion engine 2 is always operated in the most efficient state in each efficiency characteristic which is selected, and a vehicle control device 10 adjusts the...
