Hybrid vs. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles

2022 Lexus NX Plug-In Hybrid

There has been a wide range of more fuel-efficient vehicles that you can choose to sport on Cerritos roads, and you may be wondering the difference between hybrid and plug-in hybrid models. Standard hybrid vehicles leverage gas and electric power at the same time to conserve the power of a medium-sized battery. On the other hand, plug-in hybrids use a bigger battery with a 120-volt household outlet or a 240-volt charging unit. They also start with electric power and switch to gas when needed. Get a closer look at hybrid vs. plug-in cars, and then shop for your own among our inventory at Lexus of Cerritos!


Benefits of Hybrid Models

When you opt for a standard hybrid on Long Beach roads, your ride is powered by both the gas engine and an electric motor at the same time. With both of these work at the same time, this enables you to enjoy better fuel savings to keep you moving to your next destination. Plus, when you opt for traditional hybrid models, you don’t have to worry about stopping to recharge your vehicle when you’re behind the wheel.


Benefits of Plug-In Hybrid Models

As mentioned before, when looking at hybrid vs. plug-in hybrid cars, plug-in options also leverage a gasoline engine and an electric motor, however, the vehicle’s battery is much larger and is a major component to pick up the speed on your Long Beach travels. As the battery is used, your vehicle’s engine will take over, serving as a dependable backup. When operating only with the battery, it’s referred to as the vehicle’s electric range, and once the battery power runs out it must be recharged.
