Although only vehicles powered by 100% electricity are currently considered electric, cars with mixed technologies, hybrids, are available in the market. Learn about the three types of typologies:
Electric (EV) - 100% electric vehicles without combustion engine, emitting CO2, representing the cleanest alternative for a sustainable future.
Hybrids (HEV) - vehicle with two engines: electric and combustion. The electric motor acts as a support for the combustion impeller, having very short battery life. Electric motorization can regenerate energy through inertia or braking, working to reduce average consumption.
Plug-inhybrids (PHEV) -vehicles that may operate on an electric or combustion engine. This way you can start your trip with the electric motor (usually the battery allows up to 50km) and, when necessary, switch to the combustion engine. Charging can be done easily in the electric charging stations. When you are making use of the electric motor, there are no CO2 emissions.
