An electric vehicle is one that is propelled by an electric motor that recieves power from on-board batteries. There are two types of electric vehicles: Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) that have an internal combustion engine and an electric motor and Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEV) that have solely an electric motor.  Electric vehicles are quieter than comparable gasoline vehicles and more energy efficient.

Ethanol is a fuel produced by fermenting organic materials like corn, grains, crop waste materials and forestry waste materials. Ethanol is usually blended into gasoline used in the United States. E10 (10% ethanol and 90% gasoline) can be used in traditional gasoline vehicles without modification. E85 (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline) can only be used in specific vehicles.
