1. Introduction
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEVs) has materialized as an encouraging technology to implement the reduction of petroleum consumption of the vehicle. It has a high potential in the technical financial and environmental fields. Mainly, in this report explores that the relationship between technical and financial of the PHVEs. By the comparison between the cost of purchasing the vehicle and energy to show the economic benefit for the consumers. Furthermore, there will be an investigation of “consumer interest in plug-in hybrid Electric Vehicles” justifies that there is a large market development space of PHEVs. Nowadays, more and more vehicle companies bring this technology. In this article will introduce Toyota Vehicle Company, primarily Toyota owns its first plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle, which is an improvement versionof Prius, and it is named Prius-plus. This type of vehicle has a 130kg of lead-acid batteries. However, it reached to approximately twice fuel economy of a standard Prius. In its all-electric state, it could travel up to a trip of 9 miles. 2. Technology of PHEVs

2.1 introduction of plug-in hybrid electric vehicle
To produce the PHEVs technology, start with an interpretation of the hybrid-electric vehicle (HEV). HEV is a type of hybrid vehicle and electric vehicle, which provides with the conventional-internal combustion engine propulsion system with an electric propulsion system. Established on HEVs, a Plug-in hybrid-electric vehicle likes an improved vision of HEV. It is not only equipped with electric motor, an internal-combustion engine, but also it equipped...
