AN OVERVIEW OF BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLES AND PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC VEHICLES
The depletion of fossil resources, the increase carbon emissions and the studies of smart transportation technology have ve increased the importance of electric vehicles. Today, Europe and United States have started to encourage the use of electric vehicles. Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) run on a battery and drive train. These vehicles will become an alternative for conventional vehicles in the future. This study presents the technological properties of BEVs and PHEVs with some comparisions.
