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).
