Types of Electric Vehicles
There are three types of electric vehicles available: BEV (Battery Electric Vehicles) are 100% powered by electricity. PHEVs (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles) are cars with an internal combustion engine and a battery charged from an external socket; in other words, they have a plug. Hybrid cars are cars with an electric battery that is charged using the internal combustion engine (they don't have a plug).
Battery Electric Vehicles, or BEVs. These are cars that are powered only from an electric battery.
Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicles, or PHEVs. These are cars that have both an electric battery and a combustion engine. The electric battery is recharged from a plug.
Hybrid cars have an electric battery and a combustion engine. The electric battery is charged using the combustion engine.
