WHAT IS AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?
Electric vehicle technology has rapidly progressed over recent years, with new and previously inconceivable innovations helping drive this new way to view transportation in a modern world. With quantum leaps in electric motor and battery cell high-tech mechanics, automotive OEMs across the globe are racing to switch their model line focus to specialize in electricity as opposed to gasoline combustion.
ELECTRIC VS. PLUG-IN HYBRID
In addition to hybrid vehicles and fully electric vehicles, there is a third breed of new electric vehicle technology: The Plug-in Hybrid.
What is the difference between a fully electric vehicles, a standard hybrid and a plug-in hybrid? Like hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrids have both electric and gas motor. The major difference is that on a plug-in hybrid, the gas motor is held in reserve in case your battery runs out of change. In other respects, a plug-in hybrid functions more like a fully electric vehicles, in that it primarily relies on an electric motor, powered by a large battery that you plug in to charge.
