What is an EREV?

In the video below,  the Mississippi State EcoCAR team answers the question, “What is an Extended Range Electric Vehicle (EREV)?”

Team leader, Matthew Doude, shows off the team’s vehicle and explains how the EREV is powered and what happens when the battery power is depleted.

Mike Wahlstrom from Argonne National Laboratory also makes an appearance and describes how the fuel economy of each EcoCAR vehicle is calculated.
