Types of vehicles

Not all electric vehicles are equal. Just as traditional cars can range from a Ford Fiesta to a Land Rover, electric vehicles come in many makes, models and price points.

To narrow it down, first determine which broad category works best for your lifestyle

  1. Plug-In Electric Vehicle
  2. Non Plug-In Electric Vehicle

As the name suggests, plug-in electric vehicles have electric batteries that are recharged by plugging the car into an electric source. You can either go all-in with a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) that is a pure EV and powered with only electricity, or opt for a plug-in hybrid that can use either an electric battery or gas. With a plug-in hybrid, a gas-powered engine can turn on if your battery depletes.

Vehicles in the other category, Non plug-in EVs, don’t have to plug in to recharge. Instead, these vehicles are hybrids with a battery and gas engine that work together using regenerative breaking to recharge the battery.
