Electric Vehicle Definition and Terms

Electric Vehicles (EVs) includes Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) powered solely by an electric battery and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) powered by a combination of an electric motor and a gasoline engine.

The term Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) is a subset of EVs and includes both PHEVs and BEVs. These terms may apply to cars, vans, all size trucks, buses, and off-road equipment like commercial lawn care products or material handling equipment.

MassEVolves Recognition Program for EV Leaders

MassEVolves began in 2018 and is a voluntary state program recognizing an organization’s work in supporting the use of zero emission vehicles for their operations, employees, and communities. MassEVolves participants create a ZEV action team and plan that includes implementing one or more ongoing programs to help more people gain access to clean transportation.
