What is a plug-in vehicle?

Plug-in vehicles can either be fully electric or they can be a plug-in hybrid which can utilize traditional fuels as well as electricity. Unlike conventional hybrids, you can charge them by plugging in, enabling you to recharge your battery using electricity instead of through the use of the engine and braking alone.

Why consider an electric vehicle?

  • They’re fun to drive
  • They have few to no tailpipe emissions
  • They’re cheap to fuel
