Is a Plug-In Hybrid 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. A plug-in hybrid's all-electric driving range is anywhere from 28 to 60 miles depending on the make and model. For this reason, 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.
