An extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) operates as a battery electric vehicle for a certain number of miles. After the battery has been discharged, a gas engine powers an electric generator for several hundred miles of ‘extended-range’ driving. A current example is the Chevrolet Volt.
"If the [electric] vehicle is plugged in every day, as recommended, it may be possible to drive 1000-2000 miles or more between fill-ups" (Plugging-In)
