    Types of Electric Vehicles Explained

    Electric vehicles are all designed to offer an efficient performance and reduce emissions. There are many different types of electric vehicles, each with their own benefits and highlights including pure electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid.

      Electric Vehicles (EV) An electric vehicle operates using an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. This means they are not powered by petrol or diesel but are instead plugged into a charging point. Electric vehicles store electricity in rechargeable batteries which power the electric motor.
      Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV) A hybrid vehicle has both an electric motor and an engine. The two work together in harmony to provide a powerful performance while improving overall fuel economy. A HEV is not plugged in to charge. Instead, it relies on regenerative braking to charge the battery as well as the internal combustion engine.
      Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles Plug-in hybrids are different to standard hybrid vehicles. While they still have an electric motor and a combustion engine, hybrids typically run on electric power until it runs out and then switch to the combustion engine. The battery can be recharged to deliver more electric power and reduce emissions.
      Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles (MHEV) The internal combustion engine is assisted by an electric motor. At low speed, or when stationary, the engine can switch itself off and the 48V starter-generator seamlessly restarts when needed. The separate 48V Li-ion battery is automatically recharged by regenerative braking during coasting and braking. There is no requirement to connect the battery to a power source.

      Yes. Electric and hybrid cars are very reliable with many boasting an impressive electric-only range. Electric and hybrid cars usually come with an information display which shows the driver exactly how much charge is left.

      How long to electric vehicles take to charge?

      Fast and rapid charging options mean you can recharge your electric car in as little as 30 minutes. Home charging is also an option and the speed will depend on the power supply and the quantity of electricity you need to charge the car’s battery.

      Do electric cars need servicing?

      Yes, electric and hybrid cars need servicing to keep them in top condition. Electric cars tend to have fewer parts, however, making servicing cheaper.

      How do I install an electric car charging point?

      These are quick and easy to install, taking just a few hours. The best thing to do is to contact a certified OLEV (Office for Low-Emissions Vehicles) installer and you’ll be able to claim a government grant of £500 in the UK towards it. Choosing an installer like this will ensure your home charger is fitted to the highest safety standard.
