What’s the Difference between BEVs, HEVs and PHEVs?

Ford Electric Vehicles

As the name suggests, battery electric vehicles are entirely powered by rechargeable batteries. To drive these vehicles, you simply plug them in, charge them as you like and get going.

Hybrid Electric Vehicles

HEVs use an engine and battery to provide environmentally friendly performance and optimized fuel efficiency. These vehicles use regenerative braking to charge the battery, so you don’t need to plug them in to recharge them.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Like HEVs, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are also powered by a battery platform and a gas engine. The battery is used first for efficient performance and then switched to the gas engine once the charge is over. You can also switch between both power options based on the kind of performance you want.
