Owning an electric vehicle is quite simply EEEASY.

Choosing your electric car

ECO-Car types explained

?

Electric

Powered entirely by a chargeable electric battery. A battery electric vehicle is better for the environment than a petrol or diesel car as it does not emit harmful CO2 emissions, is cheaper to run, and simple to own. Cars are charged via home charging units or public charge points. These cars can also add charge to their batteries whilst you are out driving by recovering energy that would normally be lost.

?

Hybrid

Along with a petrol or diesel engine, hybrid cars also have an electric motor that is powered by a small battery. The aim of the electric motor is to assist the engine and occasionally drive very short distances on battery power – as opposed to driving long distances on battery power alone. The battery is charged by recovering energy that would otherwise be wasted. The battery then feeds this energy to the electric motor to help with acceleration or to drive the car at low speeds. This means lower emissions, better fuel economy and more money to spend on the things you enjoy.

?

Plug-in Hybrid

Combine battery and electric motor with an economical petrol engine. Plug-in hybrid cars can offer you many of the benefits of an electric car, they have a shorter electric battery range (approx. 30 miles) but can rely on their petrol motor for longer trips. The battery can be charged whilst driving, but for the full benefit, you will need to plug in. Charging a PHEV should take less than three hours. In a PHEV you can enjoy miles of low-cost, all-electric driving while still having a petrol engine for any long distance trips.

Mild-Hybrid EV (MHEV)

Petrol or diesel engine is supported by an electric motor. The electric motor allows the engine to switch off when coasting, braking or when stopped and quickly turns it back on when needed. Very similar to a self-charging hybrid car but it has a smaller battery. The petrol or diesel engine does the majority of the work but the electric motor provides assistance. Because the engine isn’t working as hard this means lower emissions and increased fuel economy. Battery is charged by recovering otherwise wasted energy such as when slowing down. There is no need to plug-in a Mild-Hybrid.

How much does it cost?

The great news is that electric vehicles are likely to cost you less over the course of your ownership than traditional petrol or diesel models. The costs to charge electric vehicles (ie: electricity) are much less than petrol or diesel. That's not all electric cars require less maintenance as they have fewer parts than a normal engine. There are also lots of government grants and schemes available to help get you started on your electric journey, not to mention tax exemptions and discounted or even zero congestion charges.
