All electric or plug-in hybrid? How to choose | BrandAveStudios


With electric vehicles (EVs) taking the market by storm, it’s time to start thinking about the car style and model that will work for you. There are plenty of news stories about exciting new EVs, but there are important differences in the types of EVs currently available. With easy-to-use comparison tools, it’s possible to compare EV models to make sure you find the perfect EV for you.

Let’s take a look at the electric vehicle models currently on the market, what’s coming down the road and the incentives available to buyers.

Available today

There are several factors to consider when deciding whether a BEV (battery electric vehicle) or PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) will work best for your driving needs. A few questions to ask yourself are:

  • What are your daily travel needs?
  • Do you often take extended trips?
  • Will this be your only vehicle?
  • Is charging at home and/or work an option?

Americans drive an average of 35-40 miles per day, but if your commute is longer and you do not have regular access to charging, a PHEV is most likely the best option for your lifestyle. Alternatively, if you have dedicated at-home charging or have access to workplace charging, a BEV is a great option and gives you all the benefits of fully electric performance.


This is only a fraction of the electric vehicles available today. With over 56 fully electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids available, you can find the vehicle that fits your needs, saves you money and gets you where you need to go safely.

Coming in 2022


Available incentives

Both PHEVs and BEVs are eligible for a federal tax credit up to $7,500. Additionally, for those who install a charger at their home, there is a federal tax credit of up to $1,000, available through Dec. 31, 2021. Be sure to check with your local dealerships for any additional offers they may be running.
