What is an Electric Vehicle? 

All-electric vehicles (EVs), also referred to as battery electric vehicles, use a battery pack to store the electrical energy that powers the motor. EV batteries are charged by plugging the vehicle into an electric power source. Although electricity production may contribute to air pollution, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency categorizes all-electric vehicles as zero-emission vehicles because they produce no direct exhaust or tailpipe emissions.

Both heavy-duty and light-duty EVs are commercially available. EVs are typically more expensive than similar conventional and hybrid vehicles, although some of that cost can be recovered through fuel savings, a federal tax credit, or state incentives. (US Department of Energy) 

What is a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle? 

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) use batteries to power an electric motor and another fuel, such as gasoline, to power an internal combustion engine (ICE). PHEV batteries can be charged using a wall outlet or charging equipment, by the ICE, or through regenerative braking. The vehicle typically runs on electric power until the battery is nearly depleted, and then the car automatically switches over to use the ICE. (US Department of Energy)

How Do I Claim My Federal Tax Credit?

Claiming your federal tax credit is easy! Simply fill out Form 8936, Qualified Plug-in Electric Drive Motor Vehicle Credit.

What is the Difference Between an Electric Vehicle and Plug-In Electric Vehicle?

Electric vehicles (EVs) have a battery instead of a gasoline tank, and an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are a combination of gasoline and electric vehicles, using a battery, an electric motor, a gasoline tank, and an internal combustion engine.

Electric Vehicles (EV)

Electric vehicles replace traditional gasoline with the use of electricity and battery sources as the main of powering the vehicle as a whole. The battery under your all-electric Audi model is charged by an electric power source.

An electric vehicle's fuel economy is reported in terms of miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent (MPGe) or the number of miles the vehicle can go using a quantity of electricity.

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles combine a gasoline tank and electric battery to power your luxury vehicle. These types of vehicles are charged by wall outlet or charging equipment, by the ICE, or through regenerative braking.

PHEV vehicles are comparable to gasoline vehicles but hold two fuel economy values: electricity range (MPGe) and gasoline capacity (MPG).
