All-electric range


All-electric range

All electric range (AER), is the range of a vehicle using only its electric battery pack. In the case of a battery electric vehicle, it means the total range per charge. For a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), it means the range of the vehicle in charge-depleting mode. PHEVs can travel considerably further in charge-sustaining mode while using fuel.

A plug-in hybrid's all-electric range is designated by PHEV-"(miles)" or PHEV"(kilometers)"km representing the distance the vehicle can travel on battery power alone. For example, a PHEV-20 can travel 20 miles without using its internal combustion engine, or about 32 kilometers, so it may also be designated as PHEV32km.
