What is the best type of electric car for you? Do you want a gas-electric hybrid vehicle, a plug-in hybrid or an electric vehicle? There are many different types to choose from, so let the team at Honda Auto Center of Bellevue assist in your search.
Hybrid cars remain a popular choice among drivers who want the benefits of both gasoline and electric vehicles. With extensive total driving range and exceptional efficiency, a hybrid car is a smart choice for those looking to reduce the time and money they spend at the gas pump.
Plug-in hybrid cars are the perfect solution for motorists seeking to reduce their carbon footprint but who don't want to drastically change how they refuel their vehicle. Plug-in hybrid electric cars have both an electric motor and a gasoline engine.
Plug-in hybrids can be plugged into a normal household outlet and can use full-electric power until it's depleted, at which point they switch over to the gas-electric hybrid powertrain for extensive driving range, just like a traditional automobile. Plug-in hybrids allow drivers to fill up on gas and recharge the electric battery, meaning there are multiple ways to refuel for your commute or cruising around town.
Then, there are electric vehicles, which only use electricity as a power source. Full EVs can create "range anxiety" among drivers, since many electric cars can't match the total driving range of hybrids, but that is gradually changing. The downside to electric cars is that they can take hours to recharge, plus their relatively limited range.
Honda has a storied history of hybrids and electrified vehicles, and it helped pioneer the industry with the original Honda Insight. Today, Honda offers five electrified models that harness the power and efficiency of hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electric car technology.
