    • The main level is a larger battery that can be used for low speed driving / maintaining a set speed as well as the above features
    • The highest level is the Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle which has the features of the above, as well as an even larger battery and a EV Charging Port and the associated electronics, allowing it to be able to drive short to medium distances solely on electricity
