range-extended electric vehicle (REEV)

A Range-Extended Electric Vehicle (REEV) is an electric vehicle with extended range. The REEV concept works with a small combustion engine that does not drive the wheels but a generator, which in turn produces electricity to charge the batteries. The batteries are charged while driving and extend the range by up to 500 km. The combustion engine is much smaller and lighter than that of hybrid electric vehicles (HEV).
