An alternative to full electric vehicles is the Hybrid, a combination of either petrol or diesel power and electric power cell. Hybrids save fuel, reduce emissions and can be driven without charging time. Hybrid car leasing is the middle ground between conventional driving and EVs and here at All Car Leasing, we have a range of Hybrid vehicles in various makes and models ready for you today.
Hybrid Car Leasing is one of the fastest-growing segment within the automotive world. This means that more and more people are looking at Hybrid car lease deals. There are 2 types of hybrid vehicles where electric power is used. These are:
These vehicles combine an electric motor with a petrol or diesel engine, but, unlike an HEV, these vehicle types require charging, to get the best performance from them. This is typically done via a home or office charging point. PHEVs have good savings also as they also utilise plug-in electric charging, however, the batteries are smaller so have shorter range CO2 levels for these vehicles usually range from 40-80 g/km but only have a battery range of approx. 30 miles.
These vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine in combination with one or more electric motors that use energy stored in batteries. Most HEV’s make use of technology such as regenerative brakes which convert kinetic energy to electric energy, which is stored in the vehicle's battery. Out of the 3 options, HEV’s are the least cost-effective as there is no ability to lower running costs as they cannot be plugged in. CO2 levels for these vehicles are usually 120g/km+ and the battery is only used typically for speeds of under 20 mph.
