Why EV?

Making the switch from a conventional petrol or diesel engined car to a hybrid or electric vehicle may seem like a daunting leap at first.

In the case of Hybrids, the step up from a conventional car is fairly small – you still put fuel in at a petrol station, and you still have an engine providing the motive force to get you down the road (most of the time!). You don’t need to plug them in, but they use less petrol than a traditional combustion-engined vehicle. Learn more about our Hybrid cars here.

Plug-in Hybrids, or PHEVs for short, offer the next step along the journey towards electric driving. They rely on a battery and motor for short trips, but with the get-out-of-jail-free card of a petrol engine to allow you to complete longer journeys without stopping to charge en-route.

Fully Electric Vehicles (or EVs) are the ultimate choice for people who want to save money on fuel, and also do their bit to reduce exhaust emissions. They don’t have any exhausts, or engines, or fuel tanks – instead they have batteries and motors. They might require you to charge up more often than you are used to visiting petrol stations, but with the driving range of some models now reaching 300 miles to a charge, and the ability to refuel your car at home in your driveway, they offer a great solution for many people.
