Which Electric Vehicle
Is right for you?

    All-Electric (EV) Fully electric vehicles (EV) run on electric battery power alone. They require no fuel and are easily recharged by attaching the car to a suitable power outlet. Because these cars use no fuel at all and produce zero emissions, they are therefore the most economical and environmentally sound option. No more trips to the pump!
    Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) Technology laden, Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) have the best of both worlds as they combine a petrol or diesel combustion engine with a battery-powered electric motor which provides a zero-emissions driving range of up to 34 miles. PHEVs have a large battery which requires charging at an external electricity source.
    Hybrid (HEV) Hybrid Vehicles (HEV) combine a combustion engine with a battery-powered motor. They work in perfect harmony, switching between power sources for maximum fuel efficiency. Short journeys may even be driven on electric power alone. No external recharging of the battery is required as the engine recharges it through regenerative braking technology.
    Mild Hybrid Mixing an economical combustion engine with an electric motor, a Mild Hybrid (MHEV) can seamlessly switch from electric at low speeds to diesel or petrol power at higher speeds or on longer journeys. The high-density lithium-ion battery does not require an external power source but is recharged through regenerative braking technology.
