BEVs, PHEVs, & HEVs: What’s the Difference?
Alternative fuel vehicles come in many different styles — some are more conventional while others are performance-driven. However, when it comes to powertrains, there are three main types of hybrids and EVs on the market:
Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs)
- Power is created by electric batteries exclusively
- Zero-emission performance
- Fast-charging or Level 2 charging capable
Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)
- Include larger batteries and electric motors than what’s found in HEVs
- Include gas tanks and charging ports
- Low-emission performance
- Are usually compatible with L2 chargers
Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs)
- Include gas-powered engines and electric motors
- Can operate on electricity alone at low speeds
- Low-emission performance
- No plug-in charging is necessary
Why Consider a Hybrid or EV?
There are a lot of good reasons to choose a hybrid or EV for your Roslyn or Syosset journeys:
- Environmentally Friendly: It’s no secret that hybrids and EVs are friendlier to the environment; they produce little to no emissions. They consume less fossil fuel (or no fossil fuel at all) and will reduce what you spend at the pump.
- Tax Credits & Incentives: Federal tax credits and incentives are available for a wide range of models that run on electricity.
- Regenerative Braking: Regenerative braking allows hybrids and EVs to recharge a small amount of their power when the brake is applied.
- Good Resale Value: Due to increasing popularity, the resale values for hybrids and EVs are climbing. Should you decide to sell yours at some point, you can expect to get a good price for it.
