Definition Edit

A plug-in electric vehicle (PEV)

get their power from the electric grid. There are two kinds of PEVs: (1) Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) use both gasoline and electricity. PHEVs are similar to today's hybrids but have larger batteries and a plug for charging; and (2) Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) use only electricity. BEVs do not use any gasoline.[1]

Privacy issues Edit

Charging PEVs raises the possibility of tracking physical location through new energy consumption data.
