What's the difference?
Types of Hybrid vehicles
Traditional hybrids are commonly referred to as self-charging hybrids. They feature a petrol engine and an electric motor which is recharged via regenerative braking when you stop or slow down. It will use this electric power at speeds under 20mph before switching to the petrol engine when more power and speed is required.View all hybrid lease deals
A plug-in hybrid pairs a petrol engine with a larger battery pack. The car will use this electric supply first, usually around 30 miles of zero emission driving, before switching to its petrol engine. You can recharge the battery at home using your mains charger or a 7.4 kW wallbox, or alternatively at a public charging point.View all hybrid lease deals
