You may have noticed some strange vehicle terms and acronyms around the place, including this site! These are descriptive terms for vehicles and how they are propelled along.
ICE cars are the most common these days although you could say they are in their twilight years. ICE stands for Internal Combustion Engine, and covers all vehicles that burn fuel (petrol, diesel, LPG) to travel.
BEV cars are the new high technology type, and the acronym stands for Battery Electric Vehicle. These vehicles only use a large battery for locomotion.
PHEV cars are a hybrid type that uses both an engine and a small battery. The acronym stands for Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicle. This means that you can both fill it up with fuel, and charge it with a plug or electrical connector.
Hybrid or Mild Hybrid cars are the final type and are similar to PHEV except you cannot charge them externally. They use some of the fuel engine power to charge a small battery internally to be used in stop/start traffic.
