Plug-in hybrid cars (PHEVs) have grown in popularity in recent years, as drivers seek to change to electric motoring. It’s easy to see why. Hybrids currently offer the best of both worlds, giving buyers the confidence of having an engine for longer ranges, whilst also providing an electric battery for shorter journeys like around town. PHEVs can help increase your fuel economy, lower your running costs, and decrease CO2 emissions. The best plug-in hybrid cars offer all this and have their own selling points too.
And today, there is a plug-in hybrid to suit the needs of nearly every driver.
