PHEV SUVs: A Bridge Between Fully-electric and Gas SUVs


A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) SUV is an automobile that combines the benefits of an electric vehicle and a traditional gasoline powered car. It is powered by a combination of an electric motor and a gasoline engine.

The electric motor is powered by a battery that can be recharged by plugging it into an electric outlet. The gasoline engine provides additional power when needed, such as for acceleration and climbing hills.

The PHEV SUV offers better fuel economy than a conventional SUV, as well as potential tax incentives and other benefits. With a PHEV SUV, the driver can choose when to use the electric motor for environmental and financial benefits, or the gasoline engine for longer trips.
