Why Go Electric? We at Yeomans DS are proud to be able to support motorists in finding the ideal solution at all times. As such, we’ll be able to help you make the change from petrol/diesel power to electric, advising on all the benefits and opportunities such a switch brings.

The benefits of buying an electric or hybrid car

There are many reasons for making the switch from petrol/diesel power to an electric vehicle. Among them, you have the opportunity to benefit from more efficient - and cost-effective - performance, with the average cost per mile being as low as 2-4p. All-electric models also release zero CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, thereby having a reduced impact on the environment around us. With more and more models available - including those from DS - you can also take advantage of falling costs when it comes to purchasing too. 

The types of electric and hybrid vehicles explained

Switching from petrol or diesel power to electric is a big change for many motorists, with the thought of re-learning how to drive often putting people off. The reality is that there’s very little difference in the driving experience, but you should be aware of the different types of vehicle available.

100% electric

As the most efficient, clean and economical option out there, 100% electric vehicles are powered solely by a lithium-ion battery that requires charging via a suitable outlet, either at home or in public.

Plug-in hybrid

The best of both clean electric power and traditional combustion engine performance, a plug-in hybrid switches from one to the other seamlessly, offering limited all-electric range for efficient motoring. The battery also needs charging at home or in public.


Offering better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions than a regular petrol or diesel model, a self-charging hybrid converts energy normally lost during braking into an electric charge for the battery.
