How close are plug in hybrids to electric cars?



  1. 0 Votes

    The general structure of both the hybrid plug-in and electric vehicle are very similar but there is one important element that clearly distinguishes them.  The plug-in hybrid has an electric motor and battery as well as a gas tank and combustion engine.  In this case the two systems are connected by a generator which uses the gasoline engine to charge the battery when needed.  A diagram on the cited page will outline these main differences.
