Different types of EVs photo, hybrid vs. fully electric graphics

What are the differences between hybrid, plug-in hybrid and pure electric vehicles?

Hybrid vehicles

Hybrid vehicles are cars that have both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. The electric motor makes the vehicle more energy-efficient because it uses less fuel and emits fewer pollutants than an internal combustion engine.

Plug-in hybrid vehicles

Plug-in hybrid vehicles are similar to hybrid vehicles, but with a larger battery. This allows the vehicle to travel longer distances in electric-only mode without the need to switch on the combustion engine. The battery of plug-in hybrid vehicles can be charged from the grid, giving them a longer electric range.

Pure electric vehicles

Pure electric vehicles run on electricity alone. They do not have an internal combustion engine, but only an electric motor. They are powered by a battery that can be charged from the mains. Pure electric vehicles are completely friendly-electric-buses/">environmentally friendly as they do not emit any pollutants.
