Commercial motorists looking to make the change to electric driving can find all the key information needed to make a seamless switch detailed on this page. Get started today.

The Benefits Of Buying Electric

Making the change to electric motoring offers a number of benefits, both to you and the environment. All-electric models emit zero harmful CO2 emissions, meaning there is less impact on the world around you, and also do not rely on fossil fuels in order to run. In addition, the costs associated with driving are far more affordable, with electricity costs lower compared to petrol and diesel. Plus, you will be exempt from a number of other fees such as road tax and congestion charges - amounts that become costly when running a fleet of models.

Types of Electric/Hybrid Models Explained

  • Mild Hybrid
    Mild Hybrid
    Mild-hybrid models are those vehicles that do not require plugging in in order to charge the battery. Instead, they make use of such technology as regenerative braking, which helps convert energy normally lost during braking into an electrical charge for the battery.
  • Plug-In Hybrid
    Plug-In Hybrid
    Plug-in hybrid vehicles feature a higher capacity battery compared to mild-hybrid options and require plugging into a suitable outlet to charge. The result is that the model can then operate in all-electric mode for a limited number of miles - often more than the daily commuting needs.
  • Electric
    Electric models are the most efficient of the lot, powered solely by a battery motor that is charged at private and public charging points. These vehicles offer incredible range and zero emissions driving, as well as cost effective running costs, making them the future of motoring.

    Where can I charge my vehicle?

     A huge network of public charging points is available throughout Scotland and continues to grow. From petrol stations to supermarkets - plus home charging points - you’re never too far from the ideal solution. ​​

    How efficient are electric vehicles compared to standard diesel/petrol vehicles?

    Very. In fact, the cost of electricity to charge an electric vehicle is a fraction of petrol/diesel fuel. Plus, the range of these models continues to grow, and there’s fewer fees such as road tax and congestion charges to pay. ​

    How does an electric vehicle work?

    Quite simply, you plug the battery into a suitable charging point. Once ready, the battery provides all the power necessary for moving the vehicle and powering the features throughout. There’s zero CO2 emissions and instant torque also available. ​

    How quick does an electric vehicle charge?

    This depends on the vehicle and the charging solution being used, with public charging points offering a faster charge than domestic options. Full details can be provided by a member of our team. ​

    Does a hybrid vehicle need fuel?

    Yes. Hybrid vehicles still have a combustion engine that requires petrol/diesel fuel. The electric battery in these models is complementary to the engine.
