Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles/Extended Range Electric Vehicles

INL and testing partner Intertek conduct Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) and Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV) testing as part of their conduct of DOE's Advanced Vehicle Testing Activity. PHEVs and EREVs are similar to hybrid electric vehicles with a few exceptions - PHEVs and EREVs have much larger battery packs, allowing for increased all-electric and/or electric-assist range, and PHEVs and EREVs must be connected to the electric grid to fully recharge the onboard traction energy storage devices (normally batteries).
