The hybrid electric vehicles use a small electric battery to addition a standard engine. It increases fuel efficiency by about 25 percent. The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle is also having the electric motor and the internal combustion engine. It has a larger battery pack, which is charged from the power grid. This battery complements an engine smaller than those that are in hybrid or conventional vehicles. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid both combine an internal combustion engine with a battery and electric motor to increase fuel efficiency. The difference between them is that you can use electricity as a fuel, because plug-ins can recharge from an electric outlet. An extended-range electric vehicle works on the principle charging successively of an internal combustion engine to power an electric generator, the battery system in a linear process — the engine powers a generator, which charges the battery. The last is battery electric vehicles, which are all electric. They do not have internal combustion engine and they have to be plugged into the electric power grid to recharge. This study took the approach of estimating the ‘macro cost and micro cost’. The macro cost would be considered the total cost that government would face if enforcing electrical cars would be implemented, such as substitution of petrol stations by electric charging stations, duties paid by holders of
