Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicles (SHEVs) belong to the family of electrified vehicles (xEVs), that also includes Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) as these technologies share common core technology of advanced Batteries, Motors and Controllers.
This technology also facilitates regenerative braking which allows storing of energy generated from braking into the batteries. The energy generated is further used to propel the vehicle either by electric motor only or have the motor assist the traditional fossil fuel engine. As the SHEVs use the electric motor and the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) in an optimal manner, fuel consumption is minimized, helping in reducing carbon emissions.
Lastly, Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicles have “onboard charging” function, wherein the electric batteries automatically get charged while in operation. Thus, it does not require any external charging facility.
