Plug-in hybrids are able to offer the best of both electric- and gas-powered vehicles.  Utilizing advanced electric motors, efficient hybrid engines and powerful batteries, a plug-in hybrid is able to rely on solely electric power, only gasoline, or a combination of both.  This is why these vehicles have their own fuel measurement of miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPGe), which measures the average distance that is traveled per unit of energy consumed.  Of course, a plug-in hybrid also has a gasoline-only rating which is still measured in MPG, an all-electric driving range and a combined driving range of both gas and electric power. 

Given the plug-in hybrid’s versatility in fuel consumption, these vehicles are known to be incredibly efficient and offer amazing savings.  Plus, there are a few different ways to charge the vehicle, including just a regular household power outlet.  And now, manufacturers are designing plug-in hybrids to feature many advanced technologies, premium amenities, attractive styling and other such advantages.
