Why Go Electric? We at Yeomans Honda 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

Buying an electric or hybrid vehicle comes with a number of benefits, enabling you to take advantage of everything from improved running costs to lower maintenance charges. In fact, when you opt for an electric car, you will be able to experience running costs that average between 2-4p per mile, while zero CO2 emissions mean you can take to the road with a clear conscience. Fewer moving parts in the engine mean there is less that can go wrong, and exemption from road tax helps ensure you can take to the road for even better value for money. ​

The types of electric and hybrid vehicles explained

When looking to move away from traditional combustion engine performance, it pays to understand the various options that are available. At Yeomans Honda, we’re delighted to detail the various vehicle types there are to choose from. 

100% electric

All-electric vehicles are just that - all electric. Powered solely by a battery-powered motor, such models require charging at suitable outlets either in public or at home. They offer impressive range and emit zero CO2. 

Plug-in hybrid

The perfect combination of electric and petrol/diesel power, a plug-in hybrid requires the battery to be plugged in to charge. This is then able to power the vehicle for a limited range, switching from fuel power seamlessly.


Unlike plug-in hybrid models, self-charging options make use of technology known as regenerative braking, enabling it to convert energy normally lost when braking into an electrical charge for the battery, thus improving efficiency.
