- PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) – this is a hybrid of a combustion and electric engine which can also have its battery charged from a power socket. The vehicle typically runs on electric power until the battery is nearly depleted, and then the car automatically switches over to use the ICE (internal combustion engine).
