Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
PHEVs are powered by an internal combustion engine that can run on conventional or alternative fuel and an electric motor that uses energy stored in a battery. The vehicle can be plugged into an electric power source to charge the battery. Regenerative braking technology can also charge the battery when decelerating. Some PHEVs are also called extended range electric vehicles (EREVs).
EXAMPLES: BMW i3 Range Extender, Cadillac ELR, Ford Fusion Energi, Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid, Toyota Prius Plug-in.
