As the industry at large turns more and more towards electrification, we suspect you’ll be seeing an increase in the number of used hybrid & electric vehicles for sale around the country. We typically have a nice selection of models in this category to choose from here at Briggs Dodge RAM in Topeka, Kansas. While it’s certainly not the largest subsection of our inventory, the models that do grace our inventory are great options in their respective segments. Check out below for some details about those segments!
The oldest and most prevalent example of electrification on the market, hybrids have been around since the turn of the century when Toyota first introduced the Prius. Today, there are dozens of different hybrid vehicles in all manner of body styles and classes. Whether you’re in the market for a sedan, a crossover or maybe even a truck, you’ll likely find some form of hybrid or another to suit your needs.
The introduction of the plug-in hybrid took us one step closer to true electrification, while still hanging onto the roots of our internal combustion engines. These models are very similar to regular hybrid vehicles in that they have both an ICE and at least one electric motor, but they also have a battery pack that can be recharged externally through a socket. Hence the name, you can plug in it to charge!
You can also plug in true battery electric vehicles to charge them. The difference is, that’s the only way you’re going to get them to move! There’s no traditional gasoline engine to back up the electric powertrain, simply the motors and the battery. We’re seeing more and more of these year after year and soon we wouldn’t be surprised if they became more prevalent than conventional oil cars altogether.
