Hybrid cars are now often marketed as ‘Self-charging electric’, whereas they are actually 100% petrol, such advertising is not permitted in Norway as it’s considered misleading.
Range extended vehicles are rare. London style taxis are Hybrid (Range extended), they require petrol power to extend the range as the battery capacity is just 80kWh and they sometimes need to cover long journeys. The manufacturers don’t like the term Hybrid being used. The only other such Hybrid was the BMW i3 REx which is no longer available.
