Definition Edit

A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is

[a] hybrid car[] with an added battery. As the term suggests, plug-in hybrids — which look and perform much like 'regular' cars — can be plugged into a 120-volt outlet (for instance each night at home, or during the workday at a parking garage) and charged. Plug-ins run on the stored energy for much of a typical day's driving — depending on the size of the battery up to 60 miles per charge, far beyond the commute of an average American — and when the charge is used up, automatically keep running on the fuel in the fuel tank. A person who drives every day a distance shorter than the car's electric range would never have to dip into the fuel tank.[1]
