Electric vehicles (EVs) are the most cost-effective kind of motorised car or van there is, and they’re the only type of automobile that produces no harmful emissions whatsoever.
Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) run mainly on fuel – but can also operate over a certain distance on electricity alone; this is known as ‘electric range’ or simply ‘range’. As such, PHEVs aren’t as efficient or eco-friendly as EVs but they’re certainly the next best thing.
Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) offer a good jumping-on point for motorists used to combustion-engined cars or vans. Although an HEV runs entirely on fuel, its electric motor provides the engine with plenty of support: power boosts and instant torque, for instance. Unlike EVs and PHEVs, MHEVs are self-charging, which means that no owner input is necessary.
Every type of motorised automobile requires servicing, including electrified models. Regular servicing is essential to a car or van’s health and longevity. It enables potential issues to be detected early, thus avoiding costly repairs further down the line.
That said, EVs in particular are typically easier to maintain than regular cars. This is because a fully electric powertrain comprises fewer working parts than a combustion engine, which means it’s less likely to malfunction.
