    • A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (also called PHEV) is a car that has batteries that can be recharged through a conventional outlet. PHEVs have both traditional internal combustionengines and batteries that can fully power the carby themselves. The advantage of PHEVs is that when they run on their electric charge only it isestimated they cost about 20-30% of what theywould running on gas. Not only does this benefit the consumer, it is also great news for the environment, as these cars reduce air pollution and the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.unix hosting
    • A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (also called PHEV) is a car that hasbatteries that can be recharged through a conventional outlet ÂPHEVs have both traditional internal combustion engines andbatteries that can fully power the car by themselves  Theadvantage of PHEVs is that when they run on their electric chargeonly it is estimated they cost about 20-30% of what they wouldrunning on gas
    •  Not only does this benefit the consumer, it is also great news forthe environment, as these cars reduce air pollution and thegreenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming The future isbright for plug in hybrids  The first PHEVs by large commercialcarmakers will be produced in 2009, with even more companiesentering the market in a large way in 2010
    •  Even today its possible to have a PHEV if you unix hostingalready have a conventional hybrid vehicle through the use of easilyobtained conversion kits  In fact, the Prius you saw today may be aconverted PHEV! Plug-in hybrids are often driven in what is calledcharge-depleting mode at first, exclusively running from cheaper andcleaner battery power  At a certain level of the batterys depletion,the internal combustion engine kicks in
    •  More advanced PHEVs may be able to use what is called blendedmode, driving in different modes depending on the maximum energyefficiency that can be achieved on a long trip  As of now it isunclear what the all electric range will be for new PHEVs, but it willbe easy to tell: It is likely that PHEVs will come in denominationssuch as a "PHEV-50" indicating a 50 mile all-electric range In partsof Europe recharging spots in parking areas are being installed
    •  These are pay-per use outlets for use by people who drive PHEVsand want to get a full charge for their ride home or to their nextdestination  In fact, a major car maker has plans to install anelectric recahrging spot infastructure in parts of Europe for its fleet ofPHEVs  It is possible that as PHEVs get more mainsteam, manyhotels and places of business may have recharging stations in theirparking lots as well Despite the fact that carbon emissions areproduced when electricity is created, PHEVs are still much lesspolluting than conventional cars and even regular hybrids
    •  If clean coal, nuclear, or other clean means of producing electricitybecome more widespead, this difference will be even morepronounced  In addition, PHEVs help create a more efficient anddistributed use of electricity production, because they are oftenrecharged during off peak periods (e g
    • at night) Â Finally, a little known but powerful potential use ofPHEVs is as a source of emergency power for the home Plug-inhybrid electric vehicles are soon to become available in the masscommercial market, and could be a significant means for thereduction of our dependence of fossil fuel, our contribution to globalwarming, and the financial stress on people who have to fill theirtanks with gas
    • Â For these reasons we can all hope that PHEVs develop into apreferred and widespread means of transportation Article Tags: , ,
