What's the difference between Ford electric & hybrid?
There are 4 main types of electric vehicles available. Mild Hybrid (MHEV) vehicles feature a small electric motor, but it does not solely power the car. It is simply there to assist the conventional engine. Hybrid (HEV) vehicles are mostly powered by a conventional engine, but an electric motor can take over for short distances. Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicles have two sources of power; a larger battery enables longer distance driving on solely electric power. And then there are All-Electric vehicles, which you simply plug in, charge and off you go.
