There are two different types: hybrid and plug-in hybrid. Both use a traditional gas engine and electric battery to efficiently power the vehicle. Continue reading below to find out more about the difference between these two models, as well as perks of taking home both.



Difference Between Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles

Conventional hybrid models use gas and electric power simultaneously to operate the vehicle. The gas engine essentially charges the medium-sized battery, so you don’t have to worry about charging it yourself.

Meanwhile, the primary difference between Hybrid and Plug-in hybrids vehicles is that Plug-in Hybrids have a larger-sized battery because it is the primary power source. The gas engine is used like a backup generator. When the battery runs low on charge, the gas engine will kick in to power the vehicle.

Hybrid vs. Plug-in Hybrid: Benefits of Hybrid Models

The conventional hybrid is perfect for Howell Township drivers who are a bit hesitant to incorporate new driving features and techniques. These vehicles feel very familiar and are very intuitive. You won’t have to find public charging stations to charge your electric vehicle, but you’ll still have incredible gas mileage. Your daily routine will remain largely the same with conventional hybrid models, and you won’t have to adapt to a new schedule.

Hybrid vs. Plug-in Hybrid: Benefits of Plug-In Hybrid Models

As mentioned above, the electric battery is the primary source of power in plug-in hybrid vehicles. Once its charge is drained, the car will switch over to the gas engine. In this case, the gas engine is the backup power source. If your primary concern is environmental safety, the plug-in will be your best option since electricity is the preferred power source. The battery is large enough to where you can run all of your errands and commute on solely electricity!
