Although we have a ton of used vehicles here at Briggs Supercenter, our selection of hybrid & electric models is still quite limited. However, with the increase in electrification across the entire automotive industry, we expect that to change drastically over the next couple of years. So, if you’re in the market for a used hybrid or electric vehicle here in the Manhattan, Kansas, area, be sure to check out what we have available right here at the Supercenter by following the below button.
The most common and prevalent type of electric vehicle on the market today remains the hybrid. There are already tons of hybrid vehicles available on the marketplace, dating all the way back to the turn of the century when Toyota introduced the Prius. There are all kinds of hybrids built today, in all shapes and sizes, including sedans, crossovers, traditional SUVs and even pickup trucks.
Trailing just a bit behind the true hybrid electric vehicle is the plug-in hybrid, which is a happy medium or stop gap between true hybrids and full battery electric vehicles. They supplement the traditional advantages of a hybrid vehicle with a rechargeable battery, letting you have a small amount of range where you can operate entirely on electricity. To recharge this battery, you have to plug your car in just like a full BEV.
While they’re still relatively few in number on the marketplace, at least compared to hybrids, the true battery electric vehicle is without a doubt the future of the industry. Tons of automakers are introducing new BEVs or making BEV variants of their existing models. A battery electric vehicle does away with the conventional oil engine altogether, instead operating entirely on electricity at a more limited range.
As mentioned, we don’t have a ton of these kinds of vehicles just yet at the time of this page’s creation, but we definitely expect the presence of these kinds of vehicles to rise. So, give our online inventory a check to see what’s available and don’t hesitate to give us a call with any questions that you might have.
