A mild hybrid uses a traditional combustion engine as a base. It doesn’t have a power outlet. Instead, it has a small electric engine that’s charged by motion energy from the car. When you break or roll down a hill, the combustion engine shuts off. Ultimately, this lowers emissions from the car. Our mild hybrids are marked with a ”B”.
A plug-in hybrid (also known as PHEV) can be charged using its power outlet. It also charges from motion energy, such as when you break or roll down a hill. The car will run off the electric motor until the battery is empty. It will then shift into using the combustion engine. The range will depend on the car model and driving style, but many times you can drive as far as 90 kilometers from one charge.
