The benefits of buying hybrid-electric

Making the change to hybrid electric motoring is an essential requirement for all drivers, with the UK government already looking to cease the sale of petrol and diesel models by 2035. While this push is to help reduce the volume of harmful CO2 emissions being released into the atmosphere, there are plenty of other reasons and advantages to making the change. For example, you can experience more affordable running costs and lower road tax, as well as the added benefit of fewer mechanical issues that may impact performance.

Key benefits

  • ​Improved running costs
  • Lower CO2 emissions and road tax
  • Fewer mechanical issues
