Electric & Hybrid Vehicles

Are you thinking about making the switch to a hybrid or electric car? Trying to choose the right vehicle for your lifestyle can be tricky.

Mild Hybrid

Mild hybrids allow your engine to switch off more frequently, which improves fuel economy and reduces emissions. Mild hybrids work in a similar way to self-charging hybrid, but have a smaller battery. Because the battery is smaller, a mild hybrid cannot drive on battery power alone.


Hybrid cars can offer you improved fuel economy and lower emissions, without the need to change how you use your vehicle. No plugging in required. Self-charging hybrid cars work just like a conventional car - no need to plug in - just fill up with fuel at the pumps, and off you go!

Plug-in Hybrid

Plug-in hybrid cars can offer you many of the benefits of an electric car, they have a shorter electric range but can rely on a petrol motor for longer trips. The battery is much larger than in a self-charging hybrid, meaning the car is able to travel around 30 miles on battery power alone.


A battery electric vehicle is better for the environment than a petrol or diesel car, cheaper to run, and simple to own. Energy is stored in a large battery, which drives a powerful electric motor. To charge it, simply plug it into a home chargepoint, or a public charger, and the car will take care of the rest.
