Ford Electric Vehicle Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What do PHEV, HEV, BEV, ZEV, and ICE stand for?

    • PHEV: At Hawk Ford of St. Charles, PHEV stands for Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle. PHEVs are a great choice for those transitioning from traditional gas and diesel cars but aren't quite ready for a fully electric vehicle yet.
    • HEV: HEV represents Hybrid Electric Vehicle. These vehicles at Hawk Ford have both a gas engine and a battery but don't require charging by plugging in. Drivers often hear the gas engine running, with the battery replenishing through regenerative braking.
    • BEV: In our context, BEV stands for Battery Electric Vehicle. These vehicles rely solely on battery power and operate as 100% electric vehicles.
    • ZEV: ZEV stands for Zero Emission Vehicle, exemplifying our commitment to sustainability. Any vehicle emitting no harmful pollutants from its exhaust pipe is considered a ZEV. BEVs are exemplary ZEVs, operating entirely without emissions.
    • ICE: ICE stands for Internal Combustion Engine, representing conventional gas-powered vehicles. We at Hawk Ford of St. Charles are dedicated to providing comprehensive information about these vehicle types, empowering our customers to make informed decisions.
