Last week, I uploaded a video asking  Do Plug-In Hybrids Make Good, Affordable, Transitional Cars — And Should You Buy One?  (https://transportevolved.com/2017/10/17/do-plug-in-hybrids-make-good-affordabletransitional-cars-and-should-you-buy-one/). 

And as a response, I heard from plenty of you who were a little confused (and in some cases, bothered) about why I left out the BMW i3 and Chevrolet Volt from my list of plug-in hybrids.

The answer? In my head, the Volt and BMW i3 REX are two very different cars and, as a consequence, do not classify quite as plugin hybrids. And while this is a controversial topic, I thought it would be a great opportunity to explain why neither vehicle are plug-in hybrids — and why we should treat them differently to plug-in hybrids.
