What is the Difference Between Hyundai Electric Cars and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles?
As gas prices continue to climb, our array of Hyundai electric cars is looking more attractive than ever. However, as you do more research, you’ll run into plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) — electrified models that still require gas. Here, our team at Mike Miller Hyundai will help you navigate these uncharted waters and figure out all you need to know about the differences between PHEVs and EVs. Plug-in Hybrid vs. Electric Cars When you see that a vehicle has plug-in capabilities, you might think that it doesn’t take gas whatsoever. That’s not the case. Just as a normal hybrid vehicle is powered by both gasoline and the battery, a PHEV gets power from gasoline and the battery, but with a more powerful battery comes the need to plug the vehicle into an EV Level 1 or Level 2 charger...
As gas prices climb, a Hyundai EV is sounding better than ever. However, as drivers consider making the change to electric and hybrid vehicles, many wonder how long they last compared to traditional gas vehicles. Luckily, our team at Mike Miller Hyundai is ready to help you navigate this course and find the right vehicle for you! Lifespan of a Hyundai EV Typically, an electric car battery is warrantied for about eight years or 100,000 miles. Remember, electric cars do not have traditional engines. The electric car battery is essentially your engine as it runs basically all components of your vehicle including the computer. Even though the vehicle is only warrantied for its first 100,000 miles, on average, electric vehicles last about 500,000 miles. That’s a lot of commutes and ro...

As a car owner, it’s important to do everything you can to get the most out of your vehicle. And while you can pretty much expect years of great performance from a new Hyundai, you have to be more diligent with a used model. Here’s what you need to do to keep your used Hyundai in fine shape.
Do: Be Careful How You Drive
On top of being courteous to other drivers and always using your turn signals, it's also important to drive carefully, as you may inadvertently be causing parts in your car to break down faster.
For example, waiting until you’re almost at a red light or stop sign before applying the brakes will put more of a strain on them. Taking turns so quickly that you hear your tires squeal will also cause your treads to wear down quicker. ...
