EREV - Extended-range electric vehicle (or REx)

Term Definition

An Electric-Range Extended Vehicle or Range Extender vehicle is the term given to a battery-powered vehicle that has a form of on-board charging capability — traditionally this comes in the form of a petrol or diesel generator. This differs from a Hybrid, as the fossil-fuel motor is not connected to the drive wheels, but rather only re-charges the battery.
Examples: Chevrolet Volt. BMW i3 REx
