Read on to learn about the Audi Q5 PHEV and find out more about plug-in hybrids and why they might be right for you.

What Is a Plug-In Hybrid?

A plug-in hybrid is a type of electric vehicle that uses both an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. This type of vehicle relies on both battery power (for the motor) and fuel (for the engine). There are many ways to charge the battery, including plugging it into a wall outlet or charging station, through the power of the internal combustion engine, or through regenerative braking.

Typically, plug-in hybrids use the battery's power first, which is often enough for when you're driving around town. When necessary, the vehicle switches to the combustion engine, such as during significant acceleration or when the battery is almost drained. This means that the way you use the vehicle can affect its fuel efficiency. It's possible to run the vehicle almost entirely on electricity.

Why Should You Consider Getting a Plug-In Hybrid?

Plug-in hybrids are more fuel-efficient than traditional vehicles. This can reduce the day-to-day cost of driving, as it uses less fuel. Also, the ability to minimize fuel consumption can help you when gas prices spike, or you might like this feature if you're environmentally conscious. Plug-in hybrids also tend to contribute less to greenhouse gas emissions compared with conventional vehicles. However, the size of this effect depends on the source of the electricity used to charge them.

Plug-in hybrids also have an advantage over electric cars. Because they have the option to run on fuel, plug-in hybrids can keep going with a quick stop at the gas station, just like a conventional vehicle. In contrast, electric vehicles typically require a longer charge when the battery is depleted compared with stopping at the pump. If you want a car that can handle road trips without you having to pause your adventure to charge for long periods, a plug-in hybrid might be right for you.
