Types of Electric Vehicles
Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV)
Mild hybrid electric vehicles are designed to harvest and store energy that is typically lost when your vehicle decelerates, and uses this stored energy to assist the engine. These vehicles are also equipped with a cutting-edge stop start system which will shut down the engine while the vehicle decelerates to improve overall fuel efficiency.
Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)
A standard hybrid electric vehicle works with a conventional engine with an electric motor and a battery pack. These vehicles have great fuel economy because the battery is charged while driving through regenerative braking.
Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
The plug-in hybrid vehicle is equipped with a conventional engine with an electric motor as well as a battery. The battery in this vehicle is charged with an external power supply along with regenerative braking. The vehicle is designed to select a certain power source or blend the two in order to give you the best overall performance and fuel efficiency.
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)
A battery electric vehicle runs solely off of an electric motor and battery. It recharges using a plug-in electric source and regenerative braking, and uses only electric power to move. This vehicle achieves zero emissions.
