That’s why PHEV batteries should be standardized – MotorBiscuit | CarTailz

The size and shape of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) battery pack may seem strange to the government.

Additionally, future advances in battery technology could allow you to convert a PHEV into a long-range EV if you can upgrade it with a standard-sized aftermarket battery.
