The benefits of buying electric

While many drivers choose an electric or hybrid car because they want to reduce their impact on the environment, there are many reasons to make the switch. Not only is local air quality improved by zero-emissions driving, motorists can also make significant savings on running costs, road tax and maintenance. Meanwhile, performance benefits include a near-silent drive and swift acceleration due to the instant availability of torque from the electric motor.

Key Benefits Include

Electric cars offer a range of financial, performance and environmental benefits when compared with internal combustion engine vehicles.

GREENER Producing fewer CO2 and NOx emissions than petrol and diesel cars, electric vehicles help to reduce air pollution. And because they’re near-silent to drive, they lower noise pollution too.
Faster Electric and hybrid cars feature an electric motor, which produces instant torque and makes acceleration from 0-62mph more rapid.
CHEAPER TO RUN Charging an electric car costs between 1-10p per mile. That means you could save over £1000 a year in fuel costs.
MORE CONVENIENT TO OWN Electric cars can be charged at your destination, meaning there’s no need to make specific fuel stops. In addition, some locations offer electric vehicle drivers priority or dedicated parking.
SOON TO BE CHEAPER TO BUY OR LEASE The cost of manufacturing electric car batteries is falling, meaning that within the next few years, the vehicles themselves will become cheaper to buy or lease.

Electric Vehicle FAQs

Below, you’ll find the answers to some of the most common questions about electric and hybrid cars. If you’d like to learn more, get in touch with us today.

What is a Hybrid Vehicle?


A hybrid vehicle combines a combustion engine with a battery pack and electric motor. Both sources provide power and the motor helps to improve efficiency.

Hybrid vs plug-in hybrid


Mild hybrid vehicles - i.e. those with self charging technology - are often able to simply complement the performance of the fuel engine, sometimes providing all-electric capability for a short period of time. Plug-in hybrids, meanwhile, provide a greater range thanks to being able to hold a greater charge in its battery.

Where can I charge my electric vehicle?


Electric cars can be charged at home using a domestic socket or wallbox, or at one of the many public charging points across the country. 

How do electric vehicles work?


Instead of a combustion engine, fully electric cars use a battery pack and either one or two electric motors to propel them. 

How often do hybrid batteries need replacing?


Hybrid batteries are made to last and typically come with a warranty of 8-12 years. As such, they rarely need replacing during the vehicle’s lifetime.

How efficient are Electric Vehicles compared to standard Diesel/Petrol Vehicles?


As with a petrol or diesel vehicle, efficiency is affected by a number of factors including your driving style and the exterior temperature.
