Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) combine an electric motor with a gasoline engine. These vehicles cannot be "plugged-in" to be "recharged.” The gasoline-powered motor also acts as a generator to recharge batteries on hybrids.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) combine an electric motor with a gasoline engine. PHEV batteries are recharged by the gasoline-powered motor during braking and by plugging into an outlet or charging station.

Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) operate solely on their electric motor. BEV batteries are recharged by plugging into an outlet or charging station.

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) use hydrogen fuel and an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. While BEVs run on batteries that must be plugged in to recharge, FCEVs effectively have their own efficient power plant on board: the hydrogen fuel cell.
