Learn About Electric Vehicles 
at Volkswagen of Nanuet

If you are shopping for a new Volkswagen vehicle, you may have come across our electric vehicle (EV) inventory. Now you may think that electric vehicles are powered only by electricity. While that may be true, we at Volkswagen of Nanuet would like to share more about what makes these vehicles inventive and special.

When it comes to electric vehicles, there are three types to choose from. They consist of the following:

Types of Electric Vehicles

Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV)

A BEV is powered solely by an electric motor that derives its power from a battery pack. As a result, the BEV develops zero emissions.

Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)

A PHEV runs mainly on a battery that's recharged from a power outlet. The gasoline engine thus takes over as the electric shuts off.

Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV)

A HEV combines the power of electric and gasoline motors. Thus, you get the best of both worlds in power and efficiency.

While saving money on fuel is a plus, there are other benefits to enjoy when you purchase an EV.

What Types of Charging Are Available for an Electric Vehicle?

With charging, you can use three methods to keep your vehicle charged for the road. At the bottom end of the spectrum lies a Trickle charger. You can use a standard three-prong 220-volt plug into a wall outlet. You may contact your electric provider before going ahead with charging.

The second option is an AC wall charger. With it, you can charge the battery much faster through a wall box. There are also AC public charging stations you can use on the road. The third option is DC fast charging. It's the fastest way to charge your vehicle, delivering up to 50 kilowatts of charging power. You can look forward to charging up the battery in full in under an hour.
