Green vehicles, clean vehicles, eco-friendly vehicles or environmentally friendly vehicles are motor vehicles that produce less harmful impacts to the environment against the more traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles running on petrol or diesel.
Manufacturers have invested heavily into this arena recently introducing alternatives such as battery electric vehicles (BEV), plug-in (PHEV), hybrid all in a variety of vehicle sizes including SUVs, city cars, vans to premium vehicles all available to lease. It is important to consider what vehicle will be right for you and your driving style and behaviours, if you are contemplating these new you have come to the right place.Enquire now
There are many benefits to these alternative vehicles:
However, there are also some aspects to consider:
Battery Electric Vehicles, also called BEVs, and more commonly called EVs, are fully-electric vehicles with rechargeable batteries and no petrol engine. Battery electric vehicles store electricity onboard with high-capacity battery packs, capable of charging on a level 3, DC which is the fastest and preferred charge.
The advancement of technology and improvement in the mileage range has now given manufacturers an opportunity to offer all-electric vans fit for purpose producing zero emission powered by a battery pack and an electric motor.
Hybrid vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine with an electric motor. Traditional hybrid electric vehicles cannot be plugged in to charge, instead the battery is charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine.
Plug-in hybrids are amongst one of the green vehicle options we have to offer. Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEV) is a hybrid electric vehicle with a large traction battery with the facility to recharge by plugging into an external source of electric power as well as using the regenerative braking and internal combustion engine.
