Electric car types

  • Pure Electric Vehicles

    Electric vehicles (you'll often see them referred to as EVs) are powered by an electric power only, with a battery powering the drive to the wheels. The range of EVs is ever improving, but most offer a range of between 100-300 miles.

  • Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles

    Unlike EVs, plug-in hybrid vehicles (or PHEVs for short) are powered by both battery power and either a petrol engine. As PHEVs have smaller batteries than pure electric cars, it means they have a maximum EV range of between 15-40 miles depending on the model. 

  • Hybrid Electric Vehicles

    Hybrid vehicles (abbreviated to HEVs) can only be driven a few miles on pure electricity, with the battery recharged under braking. Take a look at our guide to PHEV vs HEVs for more info, while we also rank the best hybrid cars.
