Do plug in hybrid batteries last longer than regular hybrid batteries?



  1. 0 Votes

    While a hybrid car achieves about twice the fuel economy as a conventional car of the same size, a plug-in hybrid car can achieve twice as much as that same hybrid. The typical plug-in hybrid has an EV range of 200-300 miles per single charge, while a standard hybrid used to get only 10-40 miles per charge. Also, while gasoline is still the main source of energy for a standard hybrid, in a plug-in hybrid, fuel is stored as electricity in the batteries, which allows for charging even on the go. There is a back-up gas tank, however, for when the batteries do die. Don’t worry though, you can charge at work or at home, for all you need is your standard, run of the mill outlet.
