Electric & Hybrid Vehicles from Swansway Group

What types of Hybrid & Electric vehicles are available?

Electric Vehicle (EV) – A fully electric vehicle that runs solely on electric energy.

Hybrid – can be either a petrol or diesel engine with a battery powered electric motor. As you’re driving the combustion engine will charge the electric battery.

Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) – Similar to the standard hybrid, but the electric battery can also be charged by plugging into a charging point.

Range Extenders – Electric powered cars with a small combustion engine to extend their range.

How do you charge an electric car?

There are a few options for charging your electric car; using a traditional plug socket, using a public electric charging station or you can buy a charging station for your home.

How much does it cost to charge an electric car?

It will depend entirely on which car you choose, as the range that each car can cover varies depending on the model and manufacturer. The longer range that your electric vehicle can cover the more it will cost for each charge, but the car will take you further on that charge.

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

It will depend on how you’re charging it, but we’ve put together some rough guides for how long you can expect to wait:

  • ​Traditional Plug Socket (up to 3kW, 13 AMP socket) – Around 8 hours, to fully replenish from 0% charge.
  • Public Charger (7 – 22kW) – 3 to 4 hours, to fully replenish from 0% charge.
  • Public Charger (22kW+) – 30 minutes, from empty to 80% charge

How can you get the longest range out of your EV battery?

  • Reduce rolling resistance – make sure your EV is fitted with low rolling resistance tyres and keep tyre pressure spot on.
  • Decelerate don’t brake – in an EV deceleration recoups energy so using your brakes will waste energy.
  • Drive smoothly – smooth acceleration and measured deceleration use less energy.
  • Reduce air resistance – the faster you drive the higher the air resistance; keep to 50-55mph.
  • Limit your climate control usage – Heating or cooling your EV can be expensive in terms of energy usage, keep it a minimum to maximise your battery’s range.
  • Stay local – most journeys will be well within your EV battery range, so you can just sit back and enjoy the ride!
