Types of EVs
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)
A Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) is a common type of EV as it’s fully powered by an electric motor to run the vehicle and a battery to run onboard electronics. BEV’s don’t use any source of gasoline and have zero tailpipe emissions, while still being able to drive 200-250km on a full charge. Typically, BEVs are powered by electricity from an external source, an electrical outlet, or charging station.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) uses a gasoline or diesel engine, an electric motor, and a large rechargeable battery to propel the vehicle (https://www.fleetcarma.com/everything-need-know-electric-cars/). PHEVs can be plugged-in and recharged from an outlet, resulting in a longer driving distance on electricity. In the case that the battery is empty the vehicle will function using the conventional engine.
