Do plug in hybrids use different batteries than regular hybrids?



  1. 0 Votes

    Both types of hybrids use the same type of battery (Lithium Ion), usually in different ranges, arrays, and thickness depending on the car’s make and model.  The variations in the hybrid type are apparent when the batteries are used in parallel with the gasoline combustion engines.  In traditional hybrids, the electric motors are often supplemental to the gasoline engines, whereas in a plug in hybrid the car may run solely off the electric motor until a specific speed is reached or a range limit is met.
