Electrified Vehicles at Balise

At the Balise Auto Group, we believe that having options is essential to customer satisfaction. We stock an extensive array of the latest and most innovative vehicles at all of our locations, with a growing emphasis on electrified models. As the automotive landscape evolves, the demand for electric vehicles (EVs) continues to grow. While regular gas-electric hybrid vehicles have been in the mainstream for nearly 25 years, automobile manufacturers are introducing more all-electric models and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs).

With that said, if you’re considering the transition from a gas-powered vehicle to one that’s either full or partially electric but feel uncertain about where to start, you’re in the right place. Here, we’ll explore the distinctions between EVs and PHEVs to help you make a well-informed decision about the alternative-fuel vehicle that best suits your needs.

  Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs)

PHEVs represent a pivotal bridge for buyers venturing into electric territory since they combine the advantages of conventional gasoline engines with sustainable electric power, eliminating the worry that you’ll run out of charge mid-trip. With its rechargeable battery, a PHEV can be charged via an external power source to provide a predictable range of emissions-free electric driving. If most of your drives are short, a PHEV will allow you to operate on all-electric power as long as you plug in before you reach the end of the range. Once the battery power runs low, the powertrain will operate like a conventional gas-electric hybrid by switching between the motor and engine as the driving situation dictates. In essence, PHEVs cater to those seeking the balance of eco-friendly all-electric driving with the flexibility of long-distance driving without having to plan for charging en route.

  Electric Vehicles (EVs)

EVs rely exclusively on electricity for propulsion, with no combustion engine for backup power. Many eco-conscious drivers favor these vehicles because they produce no tailpipe emissions, and they provide higher torque for a satisfying drive quality. With advancements in battery technology, today’s EVs offer longer driving range than earlier models, making them a viable option for both commuting and long-distance travel. Since they have fewer mechanical components, EVs typically have lower maintenance costs, too, so they’re generally considered the more economical choice overall. Plus, some EVs come with a promotional period of complimentary charging sessions, saving their drivers even more money.

Explore Balise Auto Group’s Selection of Electrified Vehicles

Hyundai IONIQ 6


As one of the most practical vehicles for daily commuting, sedans are an excellent choice for buyers who prefer this traditional body style and closer proximity to the road. Our electrified sedan selection is highlighted by cutting-edge models like the Hyundai Ioniq 6, Toyota Prius Prime, and Genesis Electrified G80. These stylish four-doors give drivers fine fuel economy and plenty of advanced technology and comfort features, making them ideal for commuting, errands, and weekend getaways.

Toyota RAV4 Prime


If you're in need of a little extra space and versatility, you’ll find the most choices in the electrified crossover segment. The selection is diverse, with models such as the Chevrolet Blazer EV, Hyundai Tucson Plug-in Hybrid, Toyota RAV4 Prime, Kia Sorento Plug-in Hybrid, GMC Hummer EV, and Mazda CX-90 PHEV. Each of these vehicles boasts a spacious interior, advanced safety technology, and the ability to tackle any adventure with ease – all while minimizing operating costs and emissions.

This vehicle class will continue to grow rapidly, with automakers releasing more and more electrified versions of established internal combustion models, as well as starting new nameplates expressly for their electrified models. For example, Volkswagen, which started its foray into EVs with the ID.4, is expanding that line with the ID.7 and ID.Buzz, while Hyundai continues to add to its Ioniq lineup.

Ford F-150 Lightning

Pickup Trucks

Pickups are enormously popular, so it makes sense that manufacturers offer electrified versions in this highly practical vehicle class. Ford offers a fully electric truck called the Lightning, while Chevrolet has the Silverado EV and GMC presents the luxurious Hummer EV Pickup. These vehicles’ electric powertrains give them not just emissions-free driving but also exceptional torque, which comes in handy for towing and overall brawn.
