Basic Electric Car Answers
- Electric vehicles (EVs) run on electricity.
- Some EVs run 100% on electricity, while others (hybrid electric vehicles) run partly on electricity and partly on some other fuel (e.g. gas or diesel). Vehicles that can at times run solely on electricity, and can be plugged in to charge their batteries, are called plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).
- 100% electric vehicles and PHEVs are clearly much better for the environment (and, thus, humans) than their gasoline-powered cousins. Their fuel (electricity) is also much cheaper.
