What’s the difference between an Electric car and a Hybrid car?

An Electric Car runs on and is charged up with electric. An Hybrid car is powered by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, hybrid cars don't need to be plugged in to charge the battery. Instead, the battery is charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine.

Can Electric cars drive through water?

Yes, like all cars electric vehicles are just as safe to drive through “wading depth water ” which is listed in the manufacture hand book.

You can also drive or charge your electric car in the rain.

Can Electric cars go as fast as Non-Electric cars?

Electric cars accelerate much faster than petrol or diesel cars.​ Most modern EVs have a top speed of between 90mph and 120mph.

Hybrid & Electric Benefits Find out more about the benefits of driving electric-powered car Choosing an electric or hybrid car is great for the environment, helping to lower our collective carbon footprint. But there are lots of other advantages too. Running costs are much cheaper, for example, with UK electricity rates averaging just over 16p per kWh in 2021. That means topping up to 100 miles of range costs less than £3.40. Plus, because emissions are lower, you’ll pay less road tax, and with fewer moving parts under the bonnet, servicing is more affordable. Not only that, the instant torque produced by the electric motor results in dynamic performance and swift acceleration.

How to charge Find out how to charge your electric or hybrid vehicle Charging is easy, whether you’re at home or on the go. At home you can use a standard three-point socket or a home charging point, which can be fully installed from £449 with the government OZEV grant. A home charging point or Wallbox is preferable for many motorists, as they dramatically reduce charge times. When you’re out and about, you can charge at a public point at your local supermarket, gym, cinema, or shopping centre. These usually offer 7kW charging, giving you 20-30 miles of range per hour. Motorway services have rapid charging points too, for which the cost is slightly higher.
