Electric cars aren't just different to ICEs because they run on a battery power rather than fossil fuels. Other big differences include:
While some hybrid cars can run on battery power alone, their range is much shorter than a pure electric car. In many cases, the battery is only there to make the engine run more efficiently.
Petrol & Diesel (ICE) Cars
A hybrid car is fitted with an internal combustion engine, an electric motor and a battery pack. These work together to make a hybrid more efficient than a pure ICE. However, because of the presence of fossil fuels, they are not as environmentally friendly as electric cars. Mild hybrids also cannot run on battery power alone.
