Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV): All-electric vehicles are completely powered by batteries and do not have traditional fuel engines. They use electric motors to drive the wheels and need to be charged via charging points or charging equipment. BEV is currently the most common type of electric vehicle.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV): Plug-in hybrid vehicles combine electric drive and internal combustion engine drive. They have a rechargeable battery and a fuel engine. The battery can be charged through a charging station or charging equipment, and it can also be charged through the internal combustion engine to generate electricity. PHEVs can travel a certain distance in pure electric mode, or they can use the internal combustion engine as a generator to provide power when needed.

Extended Range Electric Vehicles (EREV): Extended range electric vehicles are also plug-in hybrids, but they use the internal combustion engine to generate electricity after the battery is exhausted to extend the range. The role of the internal combustion engine is only to generate electricity and does not directly drive the wheels. It provides power to the electric motor through a generator.

Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV): Fuel cell vehicles use the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to generate electricity to drive an electric motor. They use fuel cells to convert hydrogen into electricity and emit only water vapor. Fuel cell vehicles require hydrogen supply stations to recharge, and the hydrogen recharging process is similar to refueling.
