What is a Plug-in Hybrid?
Should I buy a plug-in Hybrid?
If you’re interested in a hybrid car, chances are a plug-in hybrid ticks all the boxes. Plug-in hybrid s (or PHEVs) are the most popular type of hybrid with nearly 200,000 registered in the UK.
While mild and standard hybrids do offer small efficiency and cost savings, a plug-in hybrid enables you to drive much further on electric power.
Reduce your running costs
Save money at the pump
On average a mile of petrol costs between 11 and 20 pence depending on the cost at the pump and the power and weight of the car. Driving on electricity the cost can be as low as 4 or 5 pence per mile, so you can see how the savings quickly build up.

Charging a Plug-in Hybrid
Staying fully-charged is simple
Most people who buy a plug-in hybrid also get a wall charger installed at home. They’re inexpensive, easy to use and allow the car to be charged more quickly.
There are thousands of public charge points across the UK: in service stations, shopping centres and on city streets. Most work on a subscription basis so you simply sign up and swipe a card.
If you’re travelling to more rural areas with less access to charge points, a plug-in hybrids petrol engine can do the bulk of the work, but it will still use regenerative braking to charge the battery for increased efficiency.
