The benefits of buying electric

Buying an electrified vehicle has multiple benefits for both drivers and the environment. Aside from producing fewer CO2 emissions and a quieter motoring experience, they offer lower running costs, dynamic performance and cheaper servicing and maintenance costs.

Key benefits include:

  • Low to zero CO2 emissions
  • Quiet motoring
  • Dynamic performance
  • Low running costs
  • Zero road tax on fully electric models

Types of electric/hybrid vehicles explained

Discover how an electrified vehicle can enhance your everyday motoring experience.

    Mild hybrid (MHEV) Although an MHEV runs purely on fuel, its engine is supported by an electric motor, which is powered by a small self-charging battery. MHEVs are typically more efficient and produce fewer emissions than cars with only a combustion engine.
    Full hybrid (HEV) HEVs are fitted with a combustion engine and an electric motor, which is powered by a small battery. While they run primarily on fuel, they are capable of covering very short distances on electric power alone and produce fewer emissions than traditional cars.
    Plug-in hybrid (PHEV) PHEVs are fitted with a combustion engine and an electric motor, which is powered by a high-capacity battery. PHEVs can run on electric power alone for short distances, and are much more efficient and eco-friendly than traditional cars. The battery must be plugged in to charge.
    Electric (EV) EVs are 100% electric, which means they produce zero CO2 emissions and are very affordable to run and maintain. They are fitted with an electric motor (sometimes two), which is powered by a high-capacity battery. They must be charged manually.
    Charging Your Vehicle
    How to charge Find out how to charge your electric or hybrid vehicle Charging your vehicle is as easy as filling up with fuel. There are several options for charging at home, including having a wallbox installed. While out and about, you can find charge points in public places such as shopping malls and supermarkets, as well as in motorway service stations, so you’ll never need to worry about your battery running low.

    Where can I charge my plug-in hybrid or electric vehicle?


    You can plug in at home via a standard three-pin power supply or a dedicated fast-charging wallbox, or visit one of thousands of UK-wide public connectors.

    Is an electric vehicle completely carbon neutral?


    Not entirely. The EV battery manufacturing process generates CO 2 – but once it leaves the production line, an EV produces no CO 2 or NOx emissions whatsoever.

    How do I get a charger installed at home?


    First, we'll carry out a home survey and ask about your home and existing electrical supply. Then we'll also check to see if you're eligible for any grants. One of our surveyors will then visit to confirm we have all the right information about your property. They'll then check whether any upgrades are needed and make sure everything is ready for our technical team. Once all of the approvals are in place, we aim to have your installation booked in within 2 weeks.

    From arriving at your property to your very first charge, installation takes around 3-4 hours. Our fully qualified electrical engineers will keep you informed and make sure you're all setup on your charger's app. They'll also run you through a demonstration, so you know exactly how it works. We also won't leave until you're comfortable with everything and you know how to get the most out of your charger.
