    Plug-in hybrid As the name suggests, a plug-in hybrid requires regular charging of the battery. This battery, however, is capable of powering the vehicle in all-electric mode for a limited range, meaning zero CO2 emissions and improved running costs.
    All-electric All-electric models feature a high-capacity battery that is the sole source of power for your motoring. Charged at suitable outlets, the model emits zero CO2 emissions and is the cleanest driving option currently available.
    HEVs Today's hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are powered by an internal combustion engine in combination with one or more electric motors that use energy stored in batteries. HEVs combine the benefits of high fuel economy and low tailpipe emissions with the power and range of conventional vehicles.
