Hybrid Electric Vehicles, otherwise known as Full Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FHEVs), feature a similar drivetrain to MHEVs. In this case, however, the combustion engine and the electric motor can run independently, which helps deliver enhanced fuel economy. An FHEV can run on electric-only power at low speeds and over limited distances (a mile or so).
