There are two types of electric vehicle: Battery Electric Vehicles and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles.
Battery Electric Vehicles are powered 100% by electricity and have zero tailpipe emissions.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles have smaller battery packs for short all-electric driving distances before a gasoline engine or generator turns on for longer trips.
No matter what kind of electric car you buy, cost savings and sustainability are becoming more important by the day for individuals, businesses and governments. Electric cars rise to the challenge and the EV Revolution is here to stay.
