Types of Electric Vehicles:
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) are 100% electric. As there is no internal combustion engine, they don’t produce any exhaust emissions. They are driven by an electric motor, powered by a battery you plug in to the mains.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) give you flexibility as they have both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. So you can either recharge by plugging in to home or public socket, or fill up with petrol or diesel.
They combine the advantages of an electric vehicle for short, every-day drive with those of an internal combustion engine for longer journey.
