A '''plug-in electric vehicle''' ('''PEV''')
A '''plug-in electric vehicle''' ('''PEV''') is any motor vehicle that can be recharged from any external source of electricity, such as wall sockets, and the electricity stored in the rechargeable battery packs drives or contributes to drive the wheels.

PEV is a subcategory of electric vehicles that includes all-electric or battery electric vehicles (BEVs), plug-in hybrid vehicles, (PHEVs), and plug-in conversions of hybrid electric vehicles depending on battery size and their all-electric range. Plug-in electric vehicles are also sometimes referred to as grid-enabled vehicles (GEV) and also as electrically chargeable vehicles.

A plug-in electric vehicle (PEV)

get their power from the electric grid. There are two kinds of PEVs: (1) Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) use both gasoline and electricity. PHEVs are similar to today's hybrids but have larger batteries and a plug for charging; and (2) Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) use only electricity. BEVs do not use any gasoline.[1]

Privacy issues[]

Charging PEVs raises the possibility of tracking physical location through new energy consumption data.
