Ford electric-drive animation – Click above to watch video after the jump

Ever wonder what differentiates a gas-electric hybrid from a pure battery-powered vehicle? Probably not, but maybe you're perplexed about what actual features distinguish a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) from a battery-powered car that plugs in. While we're fairly certain that most of our regular readers have a thorough understanding of the differences between hybrids, electric vehicles (EVs) and PHEVs, newcomers to the green scene may have difficulty grasping some of the complex concepts.

Fortunately, Ford has released a three-minute animated video that does a rather remarkable job of explaining, in simplified terms, the differences between hybrids, PHEVs an EVs. Hop the jump to catch Ford's animated clip explaining the distinguishing features of each of its electric-drive models.
