Is a PHEV Right for You?
Many buyers find that plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are the perfect combination of electric driving performance and efficiency without the “range anxiety” of an electric-only vehicle. PHEVs enable some drivers to perform their daily commute and errands around town solely on electric power, functioning almost as if there wasn’t a gasoline engine under the hood at all. The same PHEV would also let them go on that cross-country road trip without being forced to find EV charging stations along their route (though they certainly have the option). As with any recommendation, determining if a PHEV is the right choice for you really depends on how you plan to use your car, but for many buyers, it’s the perfect middle ground.
