Mild Hybrid (MHEV)
- A smAll-Electric motor that helps improve efficiency.
- Mild Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power that work together – a conventional engine and a battery -driven electric motor.
- The electric motor does not power the car. It simply assists it.
- A seamless blend of conventional and electric power.
- Hybrid vehicles have two sources of power.
- They can automatically switch between conventional mode, pure electric mode (for short distances) or use both to power the vehicle as needed.
Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)
- Plug In. Charge up. Improve Efficiency.
- Plug-in Hybrids have the two sources of power like a Hybrid, but with a larger high voltage battery, enabling you to drive longer distances on All-Electric power.
- 100% Electric.
- Just charge it up and go.
- All-Electric cars are powered by electricity alone.
- This means they have to be charged before you can drive
