Why choose a Plug-in Hybrid Electric – and why choose Arval?


Plug-in Hyrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

Of the many benefits of running a PHEV, the one that will appeal to traditional fuel users the most, is having the combustion engine alongside he electric motor which can be recharged directly from a dedicated electrical supply. Typically the electric miles range for a PHEV is between 20-40 miles, and will perform best in urban start/stop road conditions. When in electric mode, not only will you be producing zero emissions but you can also recoupe some of the energy that would be lost through braking. It is important to note that the way you operate the vehicle will ultimately determine 

  • Choice - The number of manufacturers that now have plug-in hybrid fuel vehicle in their range, is on the increase. Some vary each of their model range with a hybrid version, meaning there will be a hybrid vehicle out there to suit all tastes and budget, in the not so distant future.
  • Tax Incentive - You may be able to take advantage of the tax benefits the government uses to incentivise ultra-low emission vehicles.
  • Low Emissions - Lower emissions means lower road tax. Hybrid cars will produce less harmful emissions than regular fuel types. Lower emission can also get your vehicle exempt from London Congestion Charges, providing your emits no more than 75 g/km of CO2





Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PHEV)

This has a larger battery, electric motor and combustion engine. A combination of the engine and regenerative braking will help recharge the battery like an HEV. However, you will need to plug in this vehicle to fully recharge the battery to deliver the benefits of the electric range. Some examples of this type of hybrid are the Volkswagen GTE, Volvo V60, BMW 2 and 5 Series, Hyundai Ioniq and Kia Niro.
