Electric vs. Hybrid vs. PHEV Models in Vaughan, ON

With hybrid, fully electric, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles continuing to emerge and Ford joining the charge, we at Pine Tree Ford Lincoln are taking the opportunity to fill drivers in on the difference between these three kinds of vehicles. Learn more about these alternative powertrains and contact our dealership in Vaughan, Ontario for further details.

What Is an Electric Car?

Unlike a traditional gas-powered vehicle, an electric car relies solely on battery power. Modern electric vehicles provide smooth and responsive performance, and you can recharge their battery with either a household outlet or at a public charging station.

What Is a Hybrid Car?

A hybrid car combines a gas engine and electric power, as it includes both a gas-powered engine and an electric motor backed by a battery. Hybrid vehicles are known for their exceptional fuel efficiency, with their battery often recharged through a regenerative braking system as you drive.

What Is a PHEV?

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) include the same hardware as standard hybrid models, but instead of depending on regenerative braking to recharge the battery, a PHEV can be plugged in and recharged through an electrical outlet. Most PHEVs are compatible with a variety of outlets, and like standard hybrid vehicles, they're incredibly thrifty on fuel.
