6 Benefits Of Owning A BEV

(Battery Electric Vehicle)

1- Zero CO2 Emissions

Be kinder to the environment by reducing the direct and lifecycle emissions from vehicle production

2 - No Petrol or Diesel Costs

The cost of traditional fuels has risen over the years. Going electric will reduce this motoring overhead.

3 - Smoother Quieter Driving Experience

You wouldn’t think it but it makes a difference. Electric cars have less moving parts reducing engine noise on every journey.

4 - Low To Zero Road Tax

Reduce your motoring expenses by going electric. Due to reduced emissions, you don’t get taxed as much if anything when driving a 100% electric car.

5 - Government Grants & Incentives

The Government need to meet emission targets. To meet these expected targets the Government provide financial incentives to convert drivers from a combustion engine to electric.

6 - No More Range Anxiety

EV cars have been developed with this in mind. New EV cars now offer ranges of over 250-miles when fully charged. This will assist in reducing the ‘what if I run out of charge’ question.

4 Benefits Of Owning A PHEV

(Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle)

1 - Miles Per Gallon

When owning or researching a Hybrid Plug-In car you will notice the very impressive mpg figure. These vehicles can achieve a great distance when on the road between filling up your tank.

2 - Zero Emissions

The PHEV operates with an electric motor that combined with a combustion engine power plant. So when the vehicle is operating on the 100% electric motor the car won’t produce any emissions. Giving you the benefit of driving in restricted zones in Citys like London.

3 - Cheap To Run

Most Plug-In Hybrid cars offer an electric motor that can produce around 35-miles+ on just the electric motor. This means if you are doing a short commute or doing jobs round down, you won’t be spending anything at the fuel station until you need to go further.

4 - Low Road Tax

Reduce your motoring expenses by buying a PHEV. Due to reduced emissions, you don’t get taxed as much if anything when buying a Plug-In Hybrid car.

3 Benefits Of Owning A HEV

(Hybrid Vehicle)

1 - Miles Per Gallon

When owning or researching a Hybrid car you will see the good miler per gallon figures stated by the manufactures. You’ll see that this vehicle type offers better mpg than a diesel or petrol engine.

2 - Zero Emissions

The HEV operates with an electric motor that combined with a combustion engine power plant. The electric engine is charged by the engine braking of the petrol or diesel engine. This gives you an electric motor that can power your car 100% on electric. Offering you zero emissions when driving in 100% electric mode.

3 - Don’t Plug It In

The electric motor isn’t charged by plugging into the power grid. Your electric engine in an HEV is charged by the movement of the combustion engine. When you let off your accelerator, your engine begins to slow you down instead of breaking. This is when your battery gets charged. So you don’t have to remember to make sure you plug your car in to top up the battery.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
