Know the Difference Between Hyundai EVs


Pure Electric

Pure electric vehicles are the truest form of EVs. These electric models are abbreviated as BEVs. They use a battery pack and electric motors. The result is long range, instantaneous torque, no emissions, and no fuel. Hyundai all-electric vehicles are perfect for frequent trips up and down I-5 between Salem, Eugene, and Portland.

Plug-in Hybrid

Want the best of both worlds? Corvallis drivers can choose a Plug-In Hybrid, which merges pure electric power with conventional power. These PHEVs have a gas-powered engine that's paired with an electric motor. Hyundai Plug-In Hybrids use less fuel, as their battery packs can provide more than 30 miles of pure electric power before the PHEV runs on gasoline and hybrid power.


A Hyundai Hybrid is a mild-electric vehicle that's remarkably fuel-efficient, earning more than 50 miles per gallon. There's no battery pack, but the hybrid powertrain consists of an electric motor and a gas-powered engine. Regenerative braking also helps Hyundai Hybrids earn high fuel economy ratings as Salem motorists make trips to Newport and Oregon's Pacific Coast. Hyundai Hybrids are labeled as HEVs.

Fuel Cell

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) are powered by hydrogen, only emitting water vapor and warm air. The fuel cells convert hydrogen-stored energy into electricity with a propulsion system.
