What Is A Hybrid?

A hybrid powertrain combines 2 different power sources in one vehicle. By combining an electric motor with an internal combustion engine, the best aspects of both power sources can be used, resulting in fuel efficient, clean and powerful performance. Delivering fuel consumption of up to 72.4mpg, and with even less emissions it comes with very low road tax.

Also, you don’t need to plug it in to charge the car – it charges as you drive and brake which is known as Regenerative Braking.

This means that if you’re approaching a junction and brake for 300 metres, you can recycle enough energy to drive again for 300 metres without the need to use the petrol engine.
