Benefits of buying electric

It goes without saying that the main benefit of electric vehicles is their reduced impact on the environment. Producing significantly fewer – or zero – CO2 and NOx emissions, they help to reduce air pollution – and thanks to their quiet motors, noise pollution is decreased too. As a driver, however, the advantages don’t stop there. Running and maintenance costs are lower due to lower energy tariffs and a smaller number of moving parts under the bonnet. Reduced emissions also means lower road tax, and if you live in a city with restricted emissions zones, you can access them without incurring a penalty. Electric vehicles are easy and fun to drive too; instant torque delivery makes acceleration quick, and with just one gear on many all-electric models, clutch control is a thing of the past..

Key benefits include:

  • Greener motoring
  • Cheaper running and maintenance costs
  • Lower road tax
  • Government incentives
  • Quicker acceleration
  • Simple to drive

Mild hybrid Mild hybrid vehicles feature a small battery that boosts engine power when needed and helps to reduce fuel consumption. There’s no electric-only range available on these models, and they don’t need to be plugged in to charge.
All-electric All-electric vehicles (EVs) are powered by a battery pack and electric motor in place of a combustion engine. Modern EVs typically have a range of at least 100 miles and are charged using an electrical power supply.

Hybrid and Electric FAQ's

Browse our most frequently asked Fiat Hybrid & Electric related questions at BS Marson

Where can I charge my electric car?


Electric cars can be charged at home, at many public places such as supermarkets and car parks, and at fuel stations.

How much does it cost to run an electric car?


Electric cars are typically cheaper to run than petrol or diesel cars, with an average cost of 2-4p per mile.

What is regenerative braking?


Regenerative braking takes energy that would otherwise be lost during braking and stores it in the battery to be reused during acceleration.

How often do hybrid batteries need replacing?


The batteries in modern electric and hybrid cars are designed to last for a minimum of 100,000 miles, so it’s unlikely that the battery pack will need replacing due to wear unless you’re buying a high mileage used vehicle.

Do hybrid vehicles cost more to maintain?


Routine maintenance is no more costly for hybrid vehicles as it is for petrol and diesel ones. Electric cars may even be slightly cheaper to maintain due to the presence of fewer moving parts.

Can I charge my electric car at home?


Yes – your electric car can be charged using a normal home power point, but it is advisable to invest in a wall box, which charges your vehicle more quickly.

How does a hybrid car save energy?


Hybrid cars have several features that help them to conserve energy. These include regenerative braking and Auto Start/Stop, as well as an electric-only mode on some vehicles. Contact us today to find out how these will benefit you.
