WHY CHOOSE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?
HOW DOES A PLUG-IN HYBRID (PHEV) WORK?
A hybrid vehicle uses the eDrive sytem - a petrol engine and electric engine working together to reduce emissions and fuel consumption without restricting range. The electric motor powers the car within certain speeds and ranges, then the conventional combustion petrol engine kicks in to ensure power and long-range performance remain available. New eBoost technology in some hybrid models means you can accelerate on electric power alone, reducing fuel consumption even when using the combustion engine.
HOW DOES A HYBRID (HEV) WORK?
Hybrid electric vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, which uses energy stored in batteries. A hybrid electric vehicle cannot be plugged in to charge the battery. Instead, the battery is charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine. The extra power provided by the electric motor can potentially allow for a smaller engine. The battery can also power auxiliary loads like sound systems and headlights, and reduce engine idling when stopped. Together, these features result in better fuel economy without sacrificing performance.
HOW DOES A BATTERY ELECTRIC (BEV) WORK?
All-electric vehicles (BEVs) have an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. The vehicle uses a large traction battery pack to power the electric motor and must be plugged in to a charging station or wall outlet to charge. Because it runs on electricity, the vehicle emits no exhaust from a tailpipe and does not contain the typical liquid fuel components, such as a fuel pump, fuel line, or fuel tank.
