What are the different types of alternatively fuelled vehicles available?

Electric Vehicles

As the name of this category would suggest, models under this category run off nothing except electricity alone. Sometimes referred to EV or pure electric, they're large battery propels a powerful electric motor. This means the vehicles output no emissions themselves helping keep local positions alone. The ranges of these cars vary by model, but modern electric vehicles have plenty of range for most users. The battery can be charged via a public or home charge-point at a fraction of the cost of filling a fuel tank in a conventional vehicle.

Hybrid Vehicles

Hybrid vehicles is the term that normally relates to self-charging hybrid vehicles. They combine two sources of power - the traditional petrol or diesel engine we're used to and an electric motor. The electric motor powers the car when most fuel would normally be consumed by a traditional engine, at the point of acceleration. It can also power the car entirely for short journeys. On longer journeys, or when you need more power the traditional combustion engine kicks in. There's no need to charge the battery as this is charged by the engine and collects power when braking.

Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles

Plug-in Hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) fall in between self-charging hybrid vehicles and all-electric vehicles. They have a larger battery and electric motor than self-charging hybrid cars allowing them to go further and faster on electric only power. To support this larger battery, as well as the self-charging technology, the vehicles can be charged via a home-charging point or a public one. Finally, they also have a traditional combustion engine for when the electric range isn't enough.

IONIQ Plug-in Hybrid

Mild Hybrid Vehicles

Unsurprisingly, a mild hybrid vehicle is a milder version of a hybrid (self-charging vehicle). They share a lot of similarities in having both a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor and battery that is charged by the engine and braking. However, the motor and battery in these cars is smaller than that in a self-charging hybrid. This means that it can't run on electric power alone, but instead the motor assists the engine during acceleration and the larger battery supports Start Stop and other power consuming features of the car without the support from the engine.
