What is a plug in Hybrid?

A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is quite simply a hybrid car you can 'plug in' to part charge, meaning the battery can be charged from an electric outlet such as a public charge point or even a three-pin socket in your garage. Plug-in hybrids can travel further using only electric power than conventional hybrids, although not as far as pure electric cars (Battery Electric Vehicle or BEVs). Most PHEVs have an electric-only range of around 30 miles, although some models like the Prius and Hyundai Iconiq have electric-only ranges closer to 40 miles.
