Electric Vehicle Q&A:
What kinds of electric vehicles are there?
There are three types of electric vehicles:
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs)
HEVs have an internal combustion engine that runs on conventional or alternative fuel and an electric motor powered by a battery. The battery is charged by regenerative braking, and the vehicle does not need to be plugged in for charging.
Plug-In Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)
PHEVs have an internal combustion engine that can run on conventional or alternative fuel and an electric motor powered by a battery. The vehicle can be plugged in to charge the battery, and regenerative braking also charges the battery.
All-Electric Vehicles (EVs)
EVs have an electric motor powered by a battery. The vehicle is plugged in for charging, and regenerative braking also charges the battery. Newer models are available with extended ranges, so you can drive further without charging.
