What Are PHEV SUVs?

PHEV SUVs are a type of plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that combines the benefits of a traditional gas-powered SUV with the modern advantage of an electric powertrain. PHEVs offer drivers a substantial savings in fuel costs and emissions, as well as more self-sustaining mobility by being able to use both electricity and gasoline for propulsion.

With PHEVs, drivers can choose between running on pure electric power or switching to gasoline to go longer distances when needed. PHEVs are specifically designed to allow the driver the freedom to travel longer with much fewer emissions than a typical gas powered SUV. In short, PHEV SUVs provide drivers an efficient and economical choice while giving them a sporty drive they’d expect from an SUV.
