   (B)   A HYBRID-ELECTRIC VEHICLE, as defined by the United States Department of Energy and United States Environmental Protection Agency, and published in the Fuel Economy Guide, “typically combines the internal combustion engine of a conventional vehicle with the battery and electric motor of an electric vehicle. The combination offers low emissions, with the power, range, and convenient fueling of conventional (gasoline and diesel) vehicles, and they never need to be plugged in.” (Source: U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy web site, www.eere.energy.gov; www.fueleconomy.gov)
