      Mild-hybrid Incorporating a small battery that self-charges through a process known as regenerative braking, mild-hybrid vehicles are able to provide complementary performance to traditional fuel motors, boosting economy and reducing emissions.
      Plug-in hybrid A higher capacity battery which is able to power the vehicle to run in all-electric mode is available in plug-in hybrid vehicles, enabling you to complete daily commutes without any CO2 emissions whatsoever.
      All-electric Running exclusively on battery power, all-electric vehicles are cost-effective and clean to drive, emitting zero CO2 emissions and costing a fraction of the cost of combustion engine models. There’s also maximum ranges of up to 300 miles achievable.

      Electric Vehicle FAQs

      Take a quick look through our latest frequently asked questions to learn more about making the change to hybrid or electric power.

      What is the best hybrid car?

      What makes the best hybrid car for one person may differ entirely for another. As a result, you should identify the factors most important to you and assess the suitability of those hybrid vehicles that are available. The team at Brayleys Renault will be able to offer advice too.

      How long does it take to charge an electric car?

      This depends on both the vehicle and the charging point being used. High-powered public charge points, for example, will be able to charge your vehicle to approximately 80% in under an hour; home points, meanwhile, often need to run overnight.

      How does an electric car work?

      A lithium-ion battery is charged via a suitable outlet point and is responsible for powering all features of your car. This includes instant delivery of torque to all four wheels, meaning you will be able to pull away with speed and power.

      Are electric cars automatic?

      In essence, yes. Electric cars do not require a traditional transmission and so are akin to driving an automatic model.

      How far can an electric car go?

      The overall range of an electric car varies from model to model, but many of the newer electric vehicles have the ability to achieve up to 300 miles on a single charge.
