Did you know there are three types of electric vehicles available ?
The new Range Rover PHEV will be arriving soon at JLR retailers. What to know about the differences between the various types of electric vehicles:
HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLES (HEV)
HEVs combine a traditional combustion engine with an electric motor, but the electric motor, but the electric-only range is very small because the battery is charged by the engine and regenerative braking. JLR offers this derivative in other markets, but has taken a different approach to electrification in North America.
PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLES (PHEV)
PHEV, including the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models, combines an internal combustion engine and an electric motor (like a HEV). The main difference is a PHEV can also be charged from an external source of electricity, typically with a much larger battery than a HEV. This results ina greater range of driving on electricity.
