Understanding the Classification of New Energy Vehicles: BEV, PHEV, HEV, and FCEV


The Thai government places a high priority on the development of the new energy vehicle industry and has introduced a series of policies and measures to support it. The Thai government's goal is for zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) to account for at least 30% of total vehicle output by 2030, that is, 725,000 cars and 675,000 motorcycles.


The second stage of the Thai Electric Vehicle Committee's electric vehicle package (EV 3.5), which lasts for 4 years (2024-2027), is to promote the continuous growth of the electric vehicle industry and provide investment opportunities for new participants in Thai electric vehicle manufacturing. The government will provide subsidies for the purchase of electric vehicles, electric pickups, and electric motorcycles based on the type and battery capacity of the vehicles.



Classification of New Energy Vehicles

New energy vehicles are vehicles that use non-traditional energy for driving.

1. Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV): Driven only by electric motors, using battery-stored electricity as a power source.


2. Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV): Driven by both electric motors and engines, can use both battery electricity and gasoline or diesel as power sources.


3. Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV): Driven by both electric motors and engines, but cannot be charged externally, only the engine can generate electricity to charge the battery.


4. Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV): Vehicles driven by fuel cell power generation, where fuel cells convert hydrogen and oxygen into electricity.
