Electric Vehicles Explained.

Unsure which type of electric or hybrid vehicle is right for you? Check out the brief overview below to help you decide on the perfect solution for your needs.

    Electric Electric vehicles have no combustion engine, instead using a battery pack and electric motor to power them. They produce no CO2 or NOx emissions, typically have a range of 150-450km, and need to be plugged in to charge.
    Plug-in Hybrid Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) have a combustion engine twinned with a battery pack and electric motor, and can run on either fuel or electric power alone, or a combination of both. Their all-electric range is typically up to 65km, and they must be plugged in to charge.
    Hybrid Full hybrid or self-charging hybrid cars have a small battery pack and electric motor that supports the combustion engine. They can only travel a couple of miles on zero-emissions power, and the battery is charged by the engine, meaning there’s no need to plug in.
    Mild Hybrid Mild hybrid cars typically use a 48V battery to support the combustion engine. They can’t travel on electric power alone, but the motor provides a boost to acceleration and helps to reduce emissions. There’s no need to plug them in, as the battery is charged by the engine.

    How often will the battery on my EV need replacing?


    Electric vehicle batteries come with an extensive warranty – often between 8-12 years. That means if you’re buying new, you probably won’t need to replace the battery during ownership.

    How long does charging take?


    Charge times vary for different models, and also depend on what type of electric vehicle you choose. Fully electric vehicles, for example, need longer to charge than plug-in hybrids.

    Can I still take my Land Rover PHEV off-road?


    Of course! Plug-in hybrid Land Rovers are designed to have the same capabilities as those with a combustion engine, so there’s no need to put a limit on your adventures.
