Types of electric vehicles

A diagram explaining how a hybrid electric vehicle is powered. A hybrid electric vehicle is fueled by gasoline and recharged by regenerative braking. Gasoline enters the gas tank and fuels the engine, which in turn fuels the electric motor and the battery. The battery charges the brakes.
A diagram explaining how a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (or a PHEV) is powered. A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle is fueled by gasoline and electricity, and recharged by regenerative braking and an electrical outlet. Gasoline enters the gas tank and is fed into the engine, and an electric current charges the battery, which feeds into an electric motor powering both the brakes and the engine.
A diagram explaining how a fully electric vehicle (EV) is powered. A fully electric vehicle is fueled by electricty and recharged by regenerative braking and electrical outlets. An electric current charges the battery, and the battery fuels the electric motor and the brakes.
