Electric Vehicles

Georgia Power is excited about what the growing electric vehicle (EV) market offers our consumers.

Three Types of Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles all have batteries and need to be plugged in to charge. There are three different types of electric vehicles: the battery electric vehicle (BEV), the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), and the extended-range electric vehicle (EREV). However, all electric vehicles need to be plugged in to recharge.
