There are four main types of EVs, including:
Vehicles powered by electricity alone. Batteries power the electric motor which then powers the wheels. You need to charge BEVs before you can drive them.
A conventional engine combined with an electric motor. Two separate sources of power that can work individually or at the same time. You don’t need to charge HEVs.
Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV)
Similar to HEVs, Plug-in Hybrids combine two sources of power but have a much larger high voltage battery. This allows you to go electric for longer than a typical hybrid. PHEVs can be charged.
Mild Hybrid (mHEV)
Mild hybrid EVs have both a conventional engine with an electric motor, but the motor isn’t powerful enough to be used on its own. mHEVs can’t be charged, with the battery charging when driving.
It’s easier than ever to get a Vauxhall electric vehicle, with many schemes and offers available to get you started.

When you’re on the road and need to charge your vehicle, there are three main types of public charging points. These are:
Fast chargers give around 20 miles range per hour. These chargers are ideal when you’re not in a rush. Plug in, spend the day shopping then come back to a fully charged car.
Around 100 miles of range per hour. Rapid chargers are perfect as a quick top-up when you’re on the go.
High-power charging points give around 200 miles per hour of charging. These are perfect if you need to get back on the road ASAP.
The electric lifestyle really is beneficial and convenient. You’ll wonder how you lived before you drove an electric Vauxhall car.
No matter the journey, you’ll always have more than enough range to get you there. The Vauxhall Corsa-e reaches up to 209 miles and the Grandland X Hybrid can run on electric mode for 35 miles, boosted up to 10% thanks to regenerative braking.
