European Nation HEV Car Sales : 2016


Another sort of alternatively powered car is the full hybrid, that doesn't plug in but uses a motor to generate electricity. They are known as a  hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and they either recharge the batteries or to directly power the electric drive motors. I see these becoming redundant in the long term but in the meantime offering electric propulsion with a superior range. The cost of both an engine and batteries is more expensive. Using the motor to drive electric motors sounds more cost effective.

As we can see, the quest for an alternative to fossil fuels is not proving an easy one. This sort seems a stopgap measure until full electric, hydrogen fuel cell of some other sort of propulsion establishes itself. The UK is currently the leader here in Europe, with France another major player. With a 29% increase in total, it is gaining momentum.
