Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) offer the advantage of using both an electric motor and a petrol engine. The electric battery can be easily recharged at home or at public charging stations.

How it works

How it works

Plug-in hybrids offer two sources of power, combining a conventional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) with a battery-powered electric motor. In addition, power-split hybrid technology connects the petrol engine, electric motor, and generator together.

PHEVs offer enough electric-only, zero-tailpipe emission driving for most daily journeys. They’re efficient too, achieving improved fuel economy and lower CO2 tailpipe emissions than Internal Combustion Engines (ICE)3.

Charging is easy, via a 230-volt power socket using the approved charging cable supplied with the vehicle or an AC Home or Public (Level 2) ‘wallbox’ charger installed by a qualified contractor.

The electric capability is ideal for daily commuting, school runs or other short drives. But you always have the assurance of a petrol engine as back-up.
