Understanding your electric vehicle options
Which electric vehicle is right for you?
Electric vehicles come in many forms to match your lifestyle. All have batteries and must be plugged in to recharge. Meet the three types of electric vehicles.
Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) have no gasoline engine and run exclusively on the energy stored in on-board batteries. Examples include the Nissan LEAF, Chevrolet Bolt, Tesla Model 3, BMW i3, Mitsubishi Outlander and Chrysler Pacifica.
Extended Range (EREV)
Extended range electric vehicles (EREVs) can run on conventional or alternative fuel and an electric motor that uses energy stored in a battery. The battery is charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine and is not plugged in to charge.
Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are powered by an internal combustion engine that can run on conventional or alternative fuel and an electric motor that uses energy stored in a battery. The vehicle can be plugged in to an electric power source to charge the battery.
Georgia Power customers may be eligible to receive up to a $250 rebate for installing a Level 2 Charger in their home. Submit a rebate request form with a copy of paid installation and charger invoice(s) within 60 days after the EV charger has been installed. To learn more about the rebate program, click here.
