With the increasing number of electric powered vehicles, it is now becoming more confusing to find the difference as they are not the same.
As of now, toward the end of 2018, electric cars can be divided into 3 main groups, namely Hybrid, Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PHEV), or Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). The main differences can be seen below:
Hybrid - uses a small battery to take in energy from the engine. Improves the overall mpg of the vehicle as the battery can propel the car at low speeds, in traffic. Toyota Prius would be an example of this.
PHEV - using a slightly larger battery that allows for all-electric travel for perhaps 20 miles. They can be plugged in to charge up the battery for this. Uses an engine for longer distances. Useful for short commutes or pottering around town. The BMW 225xe would be an example of this type.
BEV - generally will have no engine, relying on electric power fully. Can take a long time to charge fully, and have a range of 100 miles, up to 300 miles depending on the vehicle. A Renault Zoe would be an example of a BEV vehicle.
Jus in time for Christmas, the supermarkets have kicked off a small price war, with Asda dropping down to 110.7p per litre from a previous 115.7p. Whilst not a massive saving, this should still save roughly £3 on an average fill-up of 60 litres. Check your own figures using our 'Cost to Fill Calculator'.
