Electric Vehicles Explained

Featuring an approximate all-electric range of between 263 miles and 349 miles*

    Electric Electric vehicles (EVs) are the most cost-effective type of motor car to run, and they produce zero CO2 emissions too – and Kia models offer an average maximum range of 349 miles. EVs require manual charging.
    Plug in Hybrid Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are even more efficient than hybrid cars, and they produce significantly fewer emissions. They’re also capable of all-electric motoring over several miles. Plug-in hybrids require manual charging.
    Hybrid Hybrid electric vehicles produce fewer emissions and are more affordable to run than their purely combustion-engine equivalents. A self-charging battery provides an electric motor with its power – this, in turn, assists the engine, delivering instant torque, for example.

    Which is best: electric, plug-in hybrid or hybrid?


    They each have their own particular set of attributes. For impartial, expert advice, please get in touch with the Vantage Kia Scarborough team today to discuss the differences between models and find the perfect vehicle for your needs.

    Electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid vehicles cost more – are they worth the expense?


    In all honesty, yes. They’re cheaper to run than conventional cars which means that, over time, you’ll recoup on the initial outlay by saving money on fuel. Also, they’re exempt from Clean Air Zone tariffs (such as ULEZ which imposes a £12.50 daily charge) – and they attract lower Vehicle Excise Duty rates.

    If I buy an electric or plug-in hybrid Kia, what are my charging options?


    You can charge your vehicle at home or at work by using a three-pin socket or dedicated fast-charging wallbox, or on the road via one of thousands of UK-wide rapid-charging public access points. With a little research, you'll find there's plenty of charging points out there and even more being added daily.

    Can you describe another benefit of driving electric?


    Electric cars (and plug-in hybrids in electric mode) provide a near-silent driving experience, which means they contribute significantly towards reduced noise pollution.
