  • A vehicle is a hybrid if it’s 100% gasoline-fueled but doesn’t rely solely on its gasoline engine for propulsion (defined as the action of driving or pushing forward). Hybrids have electric motors that sometimes power the car in order to delay the gasoline engine and save fuel. At times, both systems work together for added power. Electric motors function as generators when you press the brake.
  • Hybrids get energy at the same time from a gasoline engine and an electric motor. The engine and motor work together to power the car. The engine also uses gasoline to help recharge the battery which powers the electric motor.
  • Hybrids use gasoline engines to keep batteries charged as you drive. There is no need to plug them in.


  • PHEV’s use a gasoline engine and an electric motor, but in different ways. A plug-in hybrid primarily uses its electric motor, which is powered by the battery. A plug-in hybrid won’t use gas until the battery runs out of power. A plug-in hybrid uses its engine as a backup plan.
  • PHEV’s can be plugged into a 120-volt household outlet or a 240-volt charging unit (or wall charger). A plug in-hybrid can be driven on pure electric power without burning any fuel.
  • A PHEV has a much larger battery and a means to recharge it using an external power source. A PHEV acts like an electric vehicle with the gasoline engine not being used when it’s battery has to charge. The engine comes on when the battery runs down which allows the vehicle to continue as a regular gasoline hybrid. It also uses regenerative braking to save fuel.
