In a parallel configuration, there is a motor and a generator, but they are connected by a transmission which can either use the motor to power the wheels or the generator. There is a direct connection between the motor and the wheels.

Are electric cars less maintenance-prone ? I assume because of the reduced complexity of the parts used, and the fact that the temperature of the engine is probably significantly less than a gasoline engine, that the car would be less likely to break down and have part wear.

Probably, but it depends. Battery lifetimes are still pretty crappy, and a series hybrid would still have an internal combustion engine of some kind which requires regularly scheduled maintenance.

The main benefit of each is that you are able to get energy from a number of different sources. These sources don't all have the same efficiency at the same load. So you can balance the load between multiple sources to get the best output.

Electric cars are more efficient in one sense because a much higher % of battery power is able to be converted to motive energy
