While hybrid models are technically still gas-powered, they aren’t fully reliant on the gas engine to generate power. Accompanying the gas engine in hybrid vehicles is a secondary electric motor. The gas engine and electric motor work together to provide power as you drive through Westlake Village, allowing for significant improvements in gas mileage. When it comes to the battery in the hybrid model, the battery self charges so you won’t have to plug into a power source.
Electric vehicles (EVs) run solely on electric power. The battery in EVs is much larger than in hybrids because it plays a more significant role in providing power for the vehicle to run. Since there is no engine and only a battery and electric motor, you will need to plug into a power source for charging. This could be a home charging station or a public charging station. Depending on how much charge the battery has, the mileage range you have to work with in an electric vehicle will vary.
If you’re a little more reluctant to make the switch from gas to electric, a hybrid model is a great place to start. You’ll be able to earn some serious fuel savings without completely changing your driving habits. A few other benefits include:
