EV Types

Electric Vehicle (EV)

If you are looking to minimise your carbon footprint then an EV might be the car of choice for you. The most environmentally friendly out of the range, electric vehicles don’t use any fuel at all. Not only do these vehicles help with going green, with the rising costs of fuel, they will save you money on running costs.

There are also lower maintenance costs for EVs. An electric vehicle has fewer moving parts in comparison to a typical petrol or diesel car, meaning you can save money by not having to worry about oil changes, spark plugs and gearboxes.

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

Plug-in hybrids are cars that run on both petrol and an electric battery, but unlike hybrids the PHEV needs to be plugged in to charge. This means that the plug-in hybrid allows for more battery range than your standard hybrid vehicle. The electric motor that allows the driver to travel a certain distance defined by the size of the batteries. Once this electric battery is depleted, the petrol engine kicks in.

Plug-in vehicles are an ideal option, as they allow for electric efficiency around town, as well as the traditional petrol option for longer road trips.

Hybrid

Hybrid vehicles travel using a mix of petrol and an electric motor. Unlike electric cars and PHEVs, the hybrid does not need to be plugged in, as the vehicle uses the power whenever you decelerate or brake and stores this energy in the battery for later.

One of the key benefits of the hybrid is the lower fuel consumption. Hybrids typically cost much less to run in comparison to your standard petrol and diesel vehicles, making hybrids an ideal choice for a city run-around.

Government Electric Vehicle Rebate

There are many benefits to going electric, one of which is you may be eligible for a rebate as part of the government’s Clean Car Discount. Customers who purchase a new EV vehicle before 31st March 2022 may be eligible for a rebate of up to $8,625.
