HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle)

A Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) is a type of vehicle that combines a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) with an electric battery. HEVs do not rely solely on electric power but use a combination of gasoline and electricity for propulsion. HEVs recharge their batteries through regenerative braking rather than relying on external charging stations. The HEV’s battery is not charged by plugging it into a charging outlet, but rather by recapturing the energy that would be lost during deceleration and braking.
