In electromobility, there are vehicles with different drive technologies.
Electric cars (also known as BEV = Battery Electric Vehicles) are fitted with an electric motor and a battery. In the
Plug-in hybrid cars (also known as PHEV = Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles) are fitted with an electric motor, a battery and a combustion engine. In our

Our plug-in hybrid technology has to meet two exacting demands at the same time: first, it must reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Second, it must push the driver deep into the seat. Just as you would expect of a

BEV: Battery electric vehicle.
Kilowatt (kW): The unit of measure for power level. In BEV terms, it is the level of power at which your vehicle can charge.
Kilowatt hour (kWh): The unit of measure for energy storage. It indicates the capacity of the battery.
Volt: The electrical potential or performance of the electrical system, which ultimately influences the charging speed. Like water running through a hose, the higher the volts the greater the pressure, the faster the charge.
Ampere or Amp: The unit of electrical current, meaning how much energy travels through a circuit. Keeping with the hose analogy, then amps is the diameter of the hose.
Amp x Volts = Power 40 amps x 240 volts = 9,600 watts or 9.6kW
State of Charge (SoC): The term used to show how charged the battery is in percent.
ICE – Internal Combustion Engine
The yearly costs of owning an EV can be significantly less costly than the operating costs of a combustion engine. Check out the stats below.
- Average cost of Premium gasoline (4.8.2021) is $3.47 (https://gasprices.aaa.com)
- Average fuel economy is 24.9 miles/gallon (https://www.epa.gov/automotive-trends/highlights-automotive-trends-report)
- That means for 10,000 miles the average vehicle would need 401 gallons.
- At $3.47/gallon that is $1,391 for those 10,000 miles.
- Cost of residential electricity varies widely in the US but the average in January 2021 was $0.1269 per kWh (https://www.eia.gov/electricity/monthly/epm_table_grapher.php?t=epmt_5_6_a)
- The EPA range for the

- 44 x ~80kWh = 3520 kWh needed, at $0.1269 is a cost of $446.69 for 10,000 miles
