Types of Electric Vehicles

Battery Electric

Fully electric cars offer the smallest environmental footprint and the biggest savings on maintenance and fuel.

Plug-In Hybrid

Plug-in hybrids have a rechargeable electric motor and a gas-powered engine to extend range if needed.

Traditional Hybrid

Powered by an electric motor and gas-powered engine, hybrids recharge as you drive. Tax Credits and other benefits may not apply.

Types of Charging

  • Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about two to five miles of range per hour, making level one a good choice for plug-in hybrid vehicles, but not for battery electric vehicles.
  • Level 2 chargers can be installed at your Moreno Valley-area home by a professional electrician. They charge about 10 to 20 miles of range per hour, making them a good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all day if possible.*
  • Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level three can charge about 60 to 80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.
