Electric Vehicles Explained.

There are four key types of electric vehicle on the market. Below is a brief overview of each.

    Mild Hybrid vehicles
    Mild hybrid Mild hybrid vehicles have a combustion engine supported by a small battery which helps to boost performance and improve efficiency. They aren’t capable of travelling on electric power alone, and the battery is recharged by the engine.
    Hybrid vehicles
    Hybrid Full or self-charging hybrid cars have a combustion engine as well as a small battery and electric motor. The motor primarily supports the engine, and is charged by it. These vehicles can only cover a few miles on all-electric power.
    Plug-In Hybrid vehicles
    Plug-in Hybrid Plug-in hybrid cars are equipped with a larger battery and combustion engine. They can typically travel around 25-30 miles on electric power alone and must be connected to a power source to charge the battery.
    Electric vehicles
    Electric Electric cars replace a combustion engine with a battery and electric motor. This needs to be connected to a power source to charge. Most modern EVs can cover over 100 miles on a single charge.

    What is the best hybrid car?


    ​The best hybrid car for you depends on your individual needs and budget. Whether you want a mild hybrid, full hybrid or plug-in hybrid, we at Lings Hyundai can help you secure the best one for your requirements.

    How long does it take to charge an electric car?


    ​Charge times for electric cars depend on the make and model, as well as the type of charger being used. Home charging takes longer than rapid (DC) charging, with home charging often taking 8-12 hours and rapid charging to 80% capacity taking as little as 30 minutes.

    How does an electric car work?


    ​Electric cars have no combustion engine – instead they use a battery pack and either one or two electric motors, which propel the car and power functions such as the lights and infotainment system.

    Are all electric cars automatic?


    Because all-electric vehicles only have one gear, they are driven like an automatic car. Hybrid cars often give you the choice of manual or automatic transmission.
