"There is another reaction of alkenes, hydrogenation, which deserves mention but which is not related to the electrophilic addition mechanism. Hydrogenation is the addition of molecular hydrogen (H22) to the alkene double bond. This converts a simple alkene into an alkane."quoted from a website.

Yes, hydrogenation of alkenes is an electrophilic addition reaction. Two hydrogen atoms are added across the double bond. It differs from bromination, etc, in that it requires a catalyst (nickel) and a temp of 150C.
