Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles Overview

A Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHV) is a vehicle which works on batteries, internal combustion engine (IC Engine) and an electric motor. It can be recharged by plugging in the external source of electric power as well as its on-board engine and generator. The combination of both IC engine and battery lead to travel long distances and less utilization of fuel; which is environment friendly and cost-effective. Conventional vehicles emit more harmful greenhouse gases than the plug-in hybrid vehicle. PHV majorly focuses on passenger cars but it also entails with light commercial vehicle, heavy commercial vehicle and two wheelers. Charging the battery from the grid can cost lesser than using the on-board engine which consumes fuel such as petrol, diesel, and CNG helping to reduce operating cost.
