What is the difference between an all-electric car and a hybrid car?

, , , ,

An all-electric car is powered solely by an electric motor and relies only on its battery to power the vehicle. The battery is charged by plugging the car into an electrical outlet or a charging station.

A hybrid car, on the other hand, has both an electric motor and a gasoline engine. The electric motor helps the gas engine to power the car and also charges the battery. The combination of both the electric motor and gas engine helps to extend the range of the car and improve its fuel efficiency.
