Hybrid & Electric Benefits Find out more about the benefits of driving electric-powered car Buying an electric or hybrid car doesn’t only benefit the environment – there are lots of advantages for drivers too. For example, fuel costs are dramatically reduced, with UK electricity rates averaging just over 16p per kWh in 2021. For a 100 mile range that’s less than £3.40. Lower emissions also means lower road tax, while fewer moving parts under the bonnet means reduced servicing costs. Plus, performance is exciting thanks to the instant torque produced by the electric motor – even an SUV can sprint from 0-60mph in under 10 seconds!

Choosing a home charging point or Wallbox means charge times are significantly lower. You can also change at one of the many public points across the country. These are often located in car parks at the supermarket, gym, cinema, or local shopping centre, and typically offer 7kW charging, giving you 20-30 miles of range per hour. Service stations also offer rapid charging at a slightly higher cost.
