What’s the Difference Between a Hybrid and a Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)?


  • A vehicle is a hybrid if it’s 100% gasoline-fueled but doesn’t rely solely on its gasoline engine for propulsion (defined as the action of driving or pushing forward). Hybrids have electric motors that sometimes power the car in order to delay the gasoline engine and save fuel. At times, both systems work together for added power. Electric motors function as generators when you press the brake.
  • Hybrids get energy at the same time from a gasoline engine and an electric motor. The engine and motor work together to power the car. The engine also uses gasoline to help recharge the battery which powers the electric motor.
  • Hybrids use gasoline engines to keep batteries charged as you drive. There is no need to plug them in.

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)

  • PHEV’s use a gasoline engine and an electric motor, but in different ways. A plug-in hybrid primarily uses its electric motor, which is powered by the battery. A plug-in hybrid won’t use gas until the battery runs out of power. A plug-in hybrid uses its engine as a backup plan.
  • PHEV’s can be plugged into a 120-volt household outlet or a 240-volt charging unit (or wall charger). A plug in-hybrid can be driven on pure electric power without burning any fuel.
  • A PHEV has a much larger battery and a means to recharge it using an external power source. A PHEV acts like an electric vehicle with the gasoline engine not being used when it’s battery has to charge. The engine comes on when the battery runs down which allows the vehicle to continue as a regular gasoline hybrid. It also uses regenerative braking to save fuel.

Charging Your Hyundai: How and Where?

When Charging at Home

As an owner of a Hyundai electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, you have 2 options when it comes to charging your car or SUV at home: plugging into a wallbox and plugging into a regular home power outlet. They supply completely different kinds of voltages and power outputs and different cables are needed to plug in.

Plugging into a wallbox – Type 2 cable

Typical wallboxes work with 230V (1-phased) or 400V (3-phased) alternating current (AC). Cars are plugged in with Type 2 cables. Depending on the wallbox, the cable might be permanently connected to the box, or have plugs at both ends. They support a charging speed of up to 22 kW.

**Purchase separately. You can order a ChargePoint Home Flex here. Requires hardwired installation and may require electrical upgrades depending on your electrical panel capacity.

Plugging into a domestic socket – ICCB cable

To charge your electric vehicle from a domestic 230 Volt socket you need an ICCB-cable (In-Cable Control Box). They have a household plug at one end and a Type 2 plug at the other. The control box communicates between the charging port and the vehicle to ensure safe charging. Because ICCB cables and wall outlets only allow for up to 2.7kW (depending on domestic electric power supply and ICCB setting) charging, the process takes a lot longer. And because residential circuits are not built for that kind of continuous strain, plugging into a regular power outlet should only ever be a fall-back solution.

*Comes standard with every electric or plug-in hybrid Hyundai purchase. No additional equipment needed.

When Charging in Public

When pulling up to public charging stations, you will come across two different kinds of plugs that provide different kinds of voltages and power outputs. Some stations have both options and your selection depends on what you need at the moment.

Regular charging stations (AC) – Type 2 cable

Just like wallboxes, most public charging stations work with alternating current (AC) and require the same Type 2 cable. The on-board-charger then converts the alternating current (AC) into direct current (DC). The charging speed (maximum charging capacity per hour) is determined by the power of the charging station, usually between 11 and 43 kW (3-phased) or your car’s on-board-charger, usually 7.2 kW (1-phased) or 10.5 kW (3-phased) – whichever has the lower kW.

Fast-charging stations (DC) – CCS Type 2 cable

Fast-charging stations use direct current (DC) and usually have a permanently connected Combined Charging System cable (CCS or Combo 2). These cables are similar to Type 2 cables but have two additional contacts to allow high-power DC fast-charging. The charging speed is not limited by your car’s on-board-charger which is completely bypassed (it doesn’t need to convert from AC to DC). CCS cables can transmit up to 350 kW but few charging stations deliver that kind of speed.

*For public charging within Chicagoland, we’ve seen average prices of $1-$4 for about 2 hours of charging time. However, it depends on the individual unit’s owner to determine pricing.


Which cables do I need to buy to charge my electric or PHEV Hyundai?

The ICCB cable for using at a domestic socket is often included in the vehicle’s price. A Type 2 cable can come at an extra cost, but is usually included in higher equipped vehicles – and you should take this cable with you when you want to charge at a public station with AC power. The CCS type 2 cable is usually installed at all the fast-charging stations (DC), so you don’t need to buy and carry around this cable.

Maintenance/Service of your Plug-In Hybrid or Electric Hyundai

The Hyundai electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles have a maintenance-free, calcium-based battery.

  • If the battery becomes discharged over a short time (because, for example, the headlamps or interior lights were left on while the vehicle was not in use), recharge it by slow charging (trickle) for 10 hours.
  • If the battery gradually discharges because of high electrical load while the vehicle is being used, recharge it at 20-30A for two hours.

AGM battery (if equipped)

  • Absorbent Glass Matt (AGM) batteries are maintenance-free and we recommend that the AGM battery be serviced by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer. For charging your AGM battery, use only fully automatic battery chargers that are specially developed for AGM batteries.
  • When replacing the AGM battery, we recommend that you use parts for replacement from an authorized Hyundai dealer.
  • Do not open or remove the cap on top of the battery. This may cause leaks of internal electrolyte that could result in severe injury.

WARNING: Do not do any repairs on the vehicle yourself. Electrical cables and/or components that have come loose may only be corrected by an authorized Hyundai workshop. Schedule service today!



Hyundai Warranties for the Hyundai Electric and Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles

Hyundai Vehicle Limited Warranty

  • 5-year/ 60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty
  • 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty
  • 7-year/unlimited miles anti-perforation warranty
  • 5-year unlimited miles 24 hour roadside assistance

Hyundai Battery Warranty

Hyundai’s battery warranty is guaranteed for 10 years/100,000 miles. The Hybrid/Electric Limited Battery Warranty covers defects in the factory workmanship or materials of the vehicle’s lithium polymer battery for 10 years from the date of original retail delivery or date of first use, or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. Coverage does not apply to lease and commercial vehicles or vehicles serviced or registered outside the U.S. See Patrick Hyundai and your Owner’s Handbook for complete warranty details and limitations.

Federal Tax Credit

State incentive programs for Electric vehicles vary in their scope and applicability. While tax incentives are most frequently mentioned, rebates, HOV access, toll reduction, and sales tax exemptions are also offered. Please consult your knowledgeable financial planner or tax specialist to determine how the state and federal incentives may apply to you.

You Can Qualify for a Federal Tax Credit on New All-Electric and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles

Owning a BMW, MINI, Cadillac, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover, Hyundai or Genesis plug-in hybrid or electric comes with many financial incentives.

On August 16, 2022, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law, which amends the current U.S. EV tax incentives. Under the amended law, only qualified EVs and PHEVs assembled in North America will be eligible for the $7,500 tax credit.

In addition to other state incentives such as rebates, tax credits, and grants. You could also save up to $1,500 in fuel costs within five years.

IEPA EV Rebate

Starting July 1, 2022, customers who purchase fully electric vehicles will be able to apply to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) for a $4,000 rebate ($1,500 for electric motorcycles). Only one rebate will be issued to a purchaser in any 10-year period. Click here to learn more.

Note: This is not a dealer or manufacturer-supported rebate program
