Types of EVs

Electric vehicles (EVs) can also be called zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs). A ZEV is a vehicle that has the potential to produce no tailpipe emissions. They can still have a conventional internal combustion engine but must also be able to operate without using it.

These categories are different members of the EV family:

  • Battery-electric vehicle (BEV): powered 100% by electric batteries
  • Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV): has an electric motor as well as a gasoline engine
  • Extended-range electric vehicle (ER-EV): has an electric motor and a battery that is recharged by a combination of electricity and gas
  • Fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV): 100% powered by hydrogen

Regular hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) that do not plug-in are not considered ZEVs or EVs.


* Automakers provide a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) when they apply to make their vehicles eligible for rebates. MSRPs listed do not include any fees that are part of the sale of a vehicle. They also do not include the cost of any optional accessories. Vehicle prices change often. Refer to automaker or dealer website for up-to-date prices.
