So, there’s a few different electric and hybrid systems out there, and we want to explain the benefits to help you make the choice that’s right for you.
All hybrids have a conventional petrol or diesel engine, as well as an electric motor that is battery-powered. The electric motor works together with the petrol or diesel engine to help reduce fuel usage and minimise harmful CO2 emissions. There are numerous different hybrid types, which can be confusing for the uninitiated, but hopefully we can give you more information to help you find the right hybrid car for you.
Self-charging hybrids have a battery-powered electric motor, which supports the engine during take-off and acceleration.
Some self-charging ‘full’ hybrids can drive using only the electric motor, for short distances at low speeds. In self-charging hybrids, the battery is charged by recovering energy that would normally be lost during braking and deceleration, and does not need to be plugged in to charge.
Plug-in Hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are similar to conventional hybrids in that they have both an electric motor and internal combustion engine, except PHEVs have larger batteries that can be charged by plugging the vehicle into either a regular domestic power socket, a private wallbox installed at home, or a public charging point.
Due to the larger battery size, PHEVs can travel several miles using only the electric motor, for example the Suzuki Across PHEV has one of the longest electric-only driving ranges of any Plug-In Hybrid, being able to cover up to 46 miles on zero emission electric only power.
1. LOWER RUNNING COSTS
Hybrid technology has many advantages, but one of the main benefits is that Hybrid models use less fuel compared to non-hybrid models.
2. LOWER CO2 EMMISSIONS
Hybrid cars are becoming more and more popular, and one big reason is the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions they offer.
3. NO CHARGING WITH SUZUKI
Worried about charging? You don't need to be. Energy that would normally be lost during braking and deceleration is used to generate electricity and charge the Hybrid battery - so you don't need to think about it.
4. A BETTER DRIVE ALL ROUND
HYBRID doesn't just improve your Suzuki’s efficiency: it also improves how it drives.
5. NO CHANGE TO HOW YOU DRIVE
You can drive a Suzuki Hybrid car as you would a regular non-hybrid car, so you don't have to compromise your normal driving style.
