A battery electric vehicle is better for the environment than a petrol or diesel car, cheaper to run, and simple to own. Like the sound of that? Our simple guide can tell you more.
Hybrid cars can offer you improved fuel economy and lower emissions, without the need to change how you use your vehicle. No plugging in required.
Plug-in hybrid cars can offer you many of the benefits of an electric car, they have a shorter electric range but can rely on a petrol motor for longer trips.
Mild Hybrids allow your engine to switch off more frequently, which improves fuel economy and reduces emissions.
The two most common places to charge an EV is at home or at work. Public charge points can either be: a valuable alternative for EV users without access to a home or workplace charger, a convenient way to occasionally top-up, or essential for ‘en route’ charging during longer EV journeys.
Charge your Electric car when you want and as you want thanks to a large choice of solutions. You can have access to the largest quick charging network across Europe during your journey on your sat nav or using our charge map here(add link to the map). At home you can use a simple domestic socket or a 7kW wallbox to charge faster or the supplied charger .
Charge points tend to be similar in operation from network to network, but access requirements and costs can vary. Some require an RFID card to use them, others an app, while an increasing number offer contactless card payment. Most networks need/allow a user to register details beforehand.
Costs vary greatly for public EV charging, depending on how much charge is required, the cost of electricity for each network, and what type of public charge point is used. Some will cost nothing to use, while rapid charging will typically be priced higher than fast charging, due to convenience and higher charge point installation costs.
EV charging costs vary from model to model as different battery sizes affect how much energy is used. Expect a cost per charge at home to cost around £5 for an EV, and less than £2 for a PHEV.

Luckily, being kind to the environment is also good for your wallet – electricity is much cheaper than petrol or diesel, so your journey may cost less than a third of what it would in a combustion-engined car. And that’s before you take into account the fact that battery-electric vehicles can also travel in the UK’s new and upcoming Clean Air Zones – and London’s Congestion Zone – for free. There are tax incentives, too. There’s a £3,500 plug-in car grant available, and up to £8,000 for eligible vans, plus, for company car drivers, battery-electric cars are subject to a lower company car BiK tax, which is currently 16%, but drops to just 2% in 2020/2021.
There are no exhaust emissions from the tailpipe of an electric vehicle – in fact, it doesn’t even have a tailpipe – this is particularly helpful for improving air quality in urban areas.
Another major perk is home charging. Imagine waking up every day with a ‘full tank’. You can get a £500 OLEV grant to help you pay for the home charger, too. Just plug in when you get home, and your car takes care of the rest
Of course, electric cars are incredibly quiet inside, making for a relaxing atmosphere. Driving is easy, too, because electric motors produce maximum torque at all revs, so acceleration is instant.
