  • What is the difference between Plug-in Hybrid, Hybrid, or All-Electric battery-electric vehicles?: There are two kinds of plug-in electric vehicles, the plug-in hybrid and the all-electric or battery-electric vehicle. Regular hybrid vehicles, while having electric components in the drive train, are not plug-in electric vehicles. The difference between them is primarily in how far you are willing to go to divorce yourself from gasoline. The plug-in hybrid (or PHEV) still relies on gasoline, and uses gasoline to implement long range driving, while the all-electric vehicle uses no gasoline, and therefore relies on fast charging for long range.
