Electricity

Electricity can be used to power electric vehicles and plug in hybrid electric vehicles. Nearly all forms of electrification can help improve fuel economy, lower fuel costs, and reduce emissions.

 

EVs charge their batteries using energy directly from the grid or from other sources such as wind or solar. Using electricity to power vehicles has significant energy security and emissions benefits.
