Prius II Plug-In-Hybrid Electric Vehicle

A PHEV is an HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) with an added battery that can be plugged into a 120-volt outlet and charged. At lower speeds and shorter commuting distances, a Prius II or Escape HEV could run on nothing but the large plug in capable battery pack thus not using any liquid fuel while still having the ability to travel a full range when the large packs SoC (State of Charge) has been depleted. A person who commutes a distance shorter than the car's electric range would never have to dip into the fuel tank in fact!
