PHEV = A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Today we'll aim to address some of the key questions you might have about one of the most talked-about areas of electric vehicles - the PHEV. Is this the ideal kind of car for you?

In short, a PHEV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. That means that like many electric cars, it has rechargable batteries that can be charged via a plug socket. However, the Hybrid part means that it has a traditional combustion engine too, giving you the "best of both worlds" combination of hybrid and electric power within one vehicle.
