What does a plug in hybrid do that a regular hybrid doesn’t?

    A plug in hybrid allows the driver to charge the car’s battery from an electric charging station or home outlet. Standard hybrid cars rely on the gasoline powered engine to generate the electricity that charges the batteries and ultimately turns the motor. By obtaining the electricity from another source, the gasoline engine does not necessarily have to run. This means that, especially in short distance driving, plug in hybrids can run without burning gasoline, making them a lot like regular electric cars. If the charge from plugging in, however, runs out, then the gasoline engine will kick in and generate electricity as a hybrid is designed to.
