How do Plug-In Hybrids (PHEVs) work?
Plug-in hybrids offer two sources of power, combining a conventional ICE engine with a battery-powered electric motor. In addition, our Power-Split Hybrid Technology connects the petrol engine, electric motor, and generator together.
With a lithium-ion battery pack, our PHEVs offer enough electric-only, zero-emissions charging for most daily journeys. They’re efficient too, achieving improved fuel economy and noticeably lower CO2 emissions than other conventional non-hybrid engines.
Charging is easy, via a 230-volt power socket using the approved charger supplied with the vehicle OR Wallbox EV Charger installed by a qualified contractor (faster and safer), OR a public charging station.
