Flexible Fuel Vehicles
FFV’s are the most similar to conventional gasoline vehicles. They use internal combustion and run on gasoline.
Electric Drive Vehicles
Electric drive vehicles use electricity as their primary fuel to improve the efficiency of conventional vehicles. They come in hybrid, plug-in, and all-electric.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
Fuel cell electric vehicles, powered by hydrogen, are more efficient than conventional vehicles and produce no harmful exhaust.
Natural Gas Vehicles
Natural gas vehicles run on compressed natural gas and work much like gasoline powered vehicles with spark-ignited engines.
Propane is also known as liquefied petroleum gas, or autogas. There are two types of propane vehicles: dedicated and bi-fuel.
Diesel Vehicles Using Biodiesel
Biodiesel and conventional diesel vehicles are one in the same. Although diesel vehicles are not technically “alternative fuel” many can run on biodiesel.
More than a dozen alternative fuels are in production or are under development for use in alternative fuel vehicles and advanced technology vehicles.
