Plug in Vehicles

Plug in hybrid electric vehicles are much like the regular cars that have more powerful batteries and the simple electric plug. They use electricity to accelerate and move its wheel. You can charge them at home by plugging them into a grid provided electricity. Although Plug in vehicles are still in the initial stage of development. But they are the single most powerful development of our generations. Plug in hybrid electric vehicles are the most suitable for the shorter distances. Infact it is the most affordable solution to reduce global warming created through vehicles.

Plug in VehiclesPlug in hybrid vehicles is the composition of the internal combustion engine powered by the powerful batteries. The energy conversion unit (internal combustion engine ) can be loaded with the gasoline, hydrogen, compressed natural gases and the other fuels. Internal combustion engine serves as the back up to provide increase range, if the battery is low, the engine will kick on and charge the battery. The stored electricity is used power the electric motor that assists the vehicles gasoline engine during acceleration. Most of the energy used by the plug in vehicles comes from the electricity. They are more attractive to the environmental conscious consumers.

Plug in vehicles have much larger battery pack that are usually lithium-ion, which are more powerful than the standard hybrid's nickel metal hydride batteries. Plug in vehicles need to be recharged daily by plugging them into a standard 110 volt electrical house outlet wall. If they are not plugged in they will work similar to the hybrid electric vehicles. The plug in hybrid electric vehicle has a battery only range of 20 -60 miles. When the charge is no longer sufficient, the gasoline engine provide additional power to charge the batteries.

  • Plug in vehicles can also be designed to use renewable and domestically produced alternative fuels instead of diesel or gasoline.
  • The gas tank remains untouched as long as the battery is charged.
  • Grid connection potential.
  • Plug in reduces the vehicle maintenance cost.
