How Hybrid cars work
Hybrid vehicles seamlessly combine the power of petrol engines with the efficiency of electric motors. In a Hybrid, the battery is recharged while you drive so it’s always ready to go without ever needing to be plugged in.
When stationary or driving in city traffic, the vehicle can automatically switch to electric (or EV) mode using zero fuel and dramatically reducing CO2 emissions[G12].
Charges while you drive
During deceleration or when braking, the electric motor continues to generate power, storing it in the vehicle’s battery to keep it charged.
Fast power delivery
When accelerating or cruising at high speeds, the petrol engine turns on, providing extra power and responsive performance when you need it.
Why choose Hybrid
With a Hybrid, you get all the power and torque advantages of an electric vehicle so you can go further for less. Driving around town, the electric motor does the work with dramatically reduced CO2 emissions[G12]. On the open road, the petrol engine takes over for efficient high-speed driving.
