When hybrids like the Toyota Prius came out in the early 2000’s, they set a standard of function that the modern hybrid has stuck to for a while now. The traditional hybrid, we’ll call it, used systems like regenerative braking and excess engine power to recharge a battery.
However, in the last couple of years, a new type of hybrid vehicle – the plug-in hybrid – came onto the scene. These vehicles can be plugged into a charging station to recharge the battery at the owner’s convenience. This type of powertrain is found in the 2022 BMW X5 and other BMW vehicles.
