      Battery Electric

      Battery Electric vehicles are solely powered by an electric battery, meaning that there is no engine and no need for traditional fuels. They can be charged at home or on the go by plugging into an electrical socket or charging station which can be take up to several hours.

      Plug-in Hybrid

      Plug-ins work similar to a standard hybrid vehicle, but due to the higher capacity battery, users can enjoy extended fully electric driving when travelling short distances. A benefit of a plug-in hybrid is that even when the battery is not charged, the vehicle will still work as a conventional hybrid.


      The two power sources that make up a Hybrid vehicle is a standard combustion engine alongside a battery-powered motor. The benefits of having both is that the engine will automatically switch between the two engines to improve your fuel economy.
