Not sure of the difference between electric, hybrids and plug-in hybrids? Our guide can help you understand how they work and which is best for you.

Electric (EV)

Running 100% on battery, electric cars are the go-to green vehicle for the environmentally-minded. Cost-effective and low on noise levels, these zero-emission vehicles feature all manner of benefits that the driver can enjoy, safe in the knowledge that they're reducing their carbon footprint every time they hit the road.

  • The greenest performance available
  • Low to zero road tax
  • Incredible yearly cost savings

Why choose a full electric vehicle?

With the sale of petrol and diesel cars set to be banned from 2030, and certain hybrids being banned from 2035, electric cars are truly the choice of the future.

If staying ahead of the curve in a way that offers incredible performance without harming the environment is what you want out of your driving, then a fully electric car offers both in plentiful supply.

Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV)

The best of both worlds, Plug-In Hybrids drive like petrol and diesel engines, with the added benefit of a larger battery and a bigger motor that let you go further on electric alone – with zero tailpipe emissions. And with at-home charging capabilities, your next journey is ready to go wherever you're heading.

  • Lower emissions than regular hybrids
  • Covers short journeys entirely on electric
  • Huge cost savings when running on electric only

Why choose a plug-in hybrid vehicle?

If you’re put off by the price of a full electric, then a plug-in hybrid might be the more affordable option. Throw in the fact that they’re cheaper to run than a regular petrol, and you’re looking at a vehicle that – in the long term – could be much easier on the wallet.

Plus, with tax benefits thanks to their lower CO2 emissions, especially for company car drivers, the savings you could make go as far as a plug-in hybrid’s distance – and that’s a lot.

Hybrid (HEV)

More efficient than regular petrol or diesel cars, our hybrid range combines an internal combustion engine with an electric motor, delivering an efficient, environmentally-friendly drive without compromise. And what's more, those green credentials get you improved mpg in return, along with a lower first-year road tax to boot!

  • Self-charging hybrid battery
  • Powerful, electric-only drive capability
  • Less dependence on fossil fuels

Why choose a hybrid vehicle?

Don’t fancy charging at home or having to find a charging station? You’re in luck. The self-charging battery keeps you topped up at all times, so you don’t have to worry about running out of charge.

Hybrids also use what’s known as regenerative braking. That means whenever you brake, your car creates energy to fill up the battery. And if you still need the power of a traditional petrol engine, a hybrid car offers that, and then some.
