Hybrid vs. Plug-In Hybrid
If you’re shopping for a hybrid vehicle, you may have also come across Plug-In Hybrids, but what’s the difference between the two? Both have a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric motor, but a hybrid vehicle derives most of its power from the engine while using the electric motor to offset some of the strain and improve fuel economy. A Plug-In Hybrid, on the other hand, operates solely as an electric vehicle at all speeds and uses the ICE only as a backup generator to recharge the battery and propel the electric motor when it starts to run dry. A hybrid and plug-in hybrid will appeal to different drivers for different reasons, and Honda has a lineup of both!
