There are many key benefits to driving an electric or hybrid vehicle. They're not only better for the environment, but they help reduce running costs, require less maintenance and there are also Government grants available too.

Electric cars are really easy to drive and also great fun. Plus, they're quieter and effortless to drive offering a more comfortable and smoother driving experience.

With electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids, you'll need to charge your car and this is now even easier than ever. As of 2022, there are over 42,000 charging points across the UK situated at supermarkets, shopping centres and more. Our team here at Halliwell Jones will show you everything you need to know so you're comfortable when it comes to charging your vehicle.

In comparison with petrol and diesel vehicles, owning an electric vehicle is much more cost-effective. The cheapest option is to charge your vehicle at home overnight, however, there are even big savings to be had from using external car charging points.

When it comes to charging your vehicle using a car charging point away from home, there will be specific tariffs available dependent on the provider. In most cases, you just use your card, plug in and you're away.

An electric car offers an entirely new, emotionally charged driving sensation. Thanks to the torque available from a stand-still, you experience fascinating electric dynamics and spontaneous acceleration. At the same time, the almost silent electric engine gives you a new and relaxed driving experience.

When actually driving, an electric vehicle is also emission-free (the term also used is “locally”).

What types of electric cars are available?

Hybrid (HEV)

Hybrid (HEV)

Hybrid vehicles regenerate and store energy from braking and assist the vehicle when accelerating. This helps to reduce emissions and lower the cost of fuel.

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)

Plug-in hybrid vehicles work by combining petrol/diesel engines with an electric motor. With larger batteries, you can drive for longer on electric only and you'll need to plug-in the vehicle to charge the batteries.

Fully Electric (EV or BEV)

Fully Electric (EV or BEV)

Fully electric vehicles (or Battery Electric Vehicles) are powered by electricity only. With no combustion engines, these have no emissions, incredible performance and save costs with no fuel required - just charge and drive.
