Choosing the right vehicle for you

There are four key types of electric and hybrid vehicle, each of which is briefly described below. This will help you choose which type of EV is right for you.

Mild Hybrid (mHEV) vehicles

A mild hybrid vehicle has an electric motor that is used to boost the combustion engine in certain situations, such as during acceleration.

The motor cannot power the car on its own, and the system recharges itself, so there’s no need to plug in to a power supply.

Full Hybrid vehicles

Full hybrid vehicles – often called self-charging hybrids – combine a combustion engine with an electric motor to boost performance and reduce fuel consumption. In hybrid mode, part of the engine power is typically diverted to recharging the battery, meaning it’s not necessary to recharge from an external power supply.

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicles

Plug-in hybrid models have a bigger and more powerful battery to support the combustion engine, meaning they’re capable of travelling short distances on electric power alone. They need to be plugged into an AC or DC charging point to be recharged.

All-electric vehicles

All-electric vehicles (EVs) run solely on electric power, with no combustion engine installed at all. A battery pack powers the electric motor that drives the car, meaning it must be connected to a power supply to recharge. The range of many modern EVs exceeds 100 miles, making them capable of travelling long distances on a single charge.
