Electric or Hybrid- Whats The Difference?
These simply use an electric battery powered motor that can be plugged in and charged. They create zero emissions and on the most part produce little to no noise when in use.
These cars are powered by an electric battery-powered motor and standard internal combustion engine, hence the name ‘hybrid’. These naturally use less fuel and have lower emissions than a normal engine, as how the car is powered can be shared between the two components. Plus, in certain models, the internal combustion engine can be used to recharge the batteries.
