Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids were introduced for the 2011 model year with the “extended-range electric” Chevrolet Volt and since then numerous manufacturers have emulated the formula of adding a big battery to a hybrid powertrain for part-time EV driving. They are a way for manufacturers to meet emissions regulations, and drivers may radically reduce day to day fuel consumption and emissions, while having full flexibility (no “range anxiety”) to travel far with gas fill ups. A federal tax credit from $2,500-$7,500 is available depending on battery size, as are varying subsidies in many states.
