Using the PHEV (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle) to Transition Society Seamlessly and Profitably From Fossil Fuel to 100% Renewable Energy

Green Car Congress

The PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle), a subset of the electric car, combines a primary electric motor with a much smaller back-up engine fueled with a hydrocarbon/biofuel mix. (In In this paper PHEV refers solely to the long-range PHEV of 60 miles (100 km) electric-only range.) The PHEV does not require the heavy, costly batteries required by other electric cars, nor does it suffer from a limited range or poor freeway performance.

Revenge of the Electric Car

Plug-in hybrids differ from hybrids on the road today in that they can go longer distances on battery power and can be recharged via electrical outlets. These vehicles are expected to range in price from about $40,000 to more than $100,000. Which has the longest range? is 50 mph and its nominal range is 50 miles; it retails for about $12,000. PHEV. GM calls the Volt an extended-range electric vehicle, or EREV.

DOE to Award Up to $2.4B for Advanced Batteries, Electric Drive Components, and Electric Drive Vehicle Demonstration/Deployment Projects

Green Car Congress

billion in federal funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) in support of the development of advanced electric drive vehicles (EDVs) including plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV), electric vehicles (EV), and fuel cell vehicles (FCV). For purposes of production volume estimation each PHEV battery must be capable of delivering at least 5 kWh of available energy (total production of 100,000 to 500,000 kWh).

Greenlings: Benefits of charging stations vs. battery swaps vs. home charging

Tony Karrer Delicious EVdriven

It eliminates waiting in lines or out of order machinery and gives you the benefit of your vehicles full range right from your doorstep. Although charging infrastructure is beginning to find its way into cities, it may be awhile until they are available in residential neighborhoods en masse. They offer the opportunity of adding range to your vehicle while you are working, eating or shopping. I would prefer to recharge at home, and could do so.
