Just a few years ago, hybrid and plug-in cars were low-volume specialty models from just a few manufacturers. The technology has come of age in the late 2010s, and now several manufacturers offer multiple hybrid and plug-in hybrid models throughout their lineups. Hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles can deliver great fuel economy, using their motors and engines together and separately in strategic alignment with sophisticated computer control. Plug-in hybrids prioritize battery-only operation when a full charge is available, and can be recharged overnight using just household 110-volt power. Unlike full-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids can match or exceed the range of gasoline-only vehicles, eliminating the dreaded range anxiety that plagues battery-electric operation.
