Difference Between Hybrid and Electric Cars

Ford is looking towards the future, finding new ways to implement new automotive green technologies that minimize environmental impact. Right now, the three major types of electric vehicles (or EVs) are hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and all-electric vehicles.

Any type of EV is less harmful to the environment than a traditional, gas powered vehicle. An all-electric vehicle like the Focus Electric produces no tail pipe emissions, while hybrids like the C-Max Hybrid rely on gas but also use electrical energy to decrease environmental impact.

Not every EV type is suited for everyone. View the infographic below to determine which EV fits your lifestyle:
