The Best of Both Worlds
With two sources of power, a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) gives you all the benefits of a hybrid electric vehicle plus an extended CO2 emissions-free electric-only driving range. So you can do more with less, while reducing carbon emissions along the way.
Enhance Your Potential
There is nothing complicated about a PHEV. Just like a hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), it has both a gas engine and electric motors, and automatically switches between electric-mode only (EV mode), gas-mode only, or a seamless combination of both.
Here’s the difference. With its larger battery and more powerful motor, a PHEV allows you to travel further in EV-mode alone than a conventional HEV. Like an HEV, the battery recharges through regenerative braking. You can also choose to plug-in to extend your electric-only driving range.
