EDTA promotes hybrid, plug-in hybrid, extended-range, battery, and fuel cell electric technologies.
Hybrid electric vehicle
A hybrid car, or hybrid electric vehicle (HEV), uses both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine to propel the vehicle.
A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), or plug-in car, has a battery that can be charged off board by plugging into the grid.
An extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) operates as a battery electric vehicle for a certain number of miles and switches to combustion engine gas.
A battery electric vehicle (BEV) is powered exclusively by the electricity from its on-board battery
Fuel cell electric vehicle
A fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) converts the chemical energy from a fuel, for example hydrogen, into electricity.
