What is a hybrid car?

A hybrid car is one which, in addition to its traditional petrol engine, has an electric motor powered by a battery. Often referred to as a HEV, Hybrid Electric Vehicle, although hybrids have a battery, they cannot be charged by connection to an external power source. Instead, a hybrid car charges its battery when the petrol engine is cruising, rather than in stop/start traffic, and especially at times when you brake or release the accelerator, which is when the excess energy is transferred back to the battery.

What is a plug-in hybrid car?

Like a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid will also have both a battery-powered electric motor and a petrol engine. However, the plug-in hybrid, as its name suggests, can be plugged in to a public charging station or even an ordinary domestic power socket and recharged. Usually abbreviated to PHEV, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, these cars offer an electric-only range, which is usually enough for most people’s everyday commute.

The future of PHEVs

The range of new PHEV cars for sale at Brayleys is only set to increase, as vehicle manufacturers bring more to the market. There are now more than 130,000 plug-in hybrid cars on UK roads and the numbers are increasing fast, as drivers recognise their value, both in terms of fuel economy and their more environmentally emissions footprint, especially in built-up areas. What’s more, there is clear government support for these cars with the Plug-in Hybrid Car Grant scheme and the announcement of plans to ban new purely petrol and diesel cars from 2040.
