Types of Electric/Hybrid Vehicles Explained
Everything you need to know about hybrid, fully electric and fuel cell cars
Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)Switching seamlessly between power sources, a Toyota full Hybrid Electric Vehicle offers the versatility to drive using either electric energy or a combination of petrol and electric. It has both a fuel tank and larger battery which is self charged by the vehicle when in use.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle drives using either electric energy or a combination of petrol and electric. It has a fuel tank and a larger battery which can also be recharged through an external charging point, this allows longer periods of pure electric driving.
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)Electric Vehicles are propelled solely on electrical energy that is stored in a battery. The battery is mainly recharged with electricity from an external charging point.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)Fuel cell vehicles are propelled solely on electrical energy. The energy is produced in a fuel cell stack from hydrogen gas stored on board and is converted to electricity, emitting nothing but water.
