Why Go Electric? We at Yeomans Nissan 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

Making the change to electric or hybrid motoring enables you to take advantage of a number of benefits. For example, the running costs of an electric vehicle are between 2-4p per mile - a significant reduction compared to fuel-powered models. What’s more, there’s fewer mechanical issues due to the absence of a regular engine, and no road tax to be paid. Plus, with more and more models becoming available, purchase prices are falling and thus you can secure an even better deal when buying. ​

The types of electric and hybrid vehicles explained

Moving from a traditional fuel engine to one powered by electric is a big change for many, so understanding the various options that are available is key. Learn more about the vehicle types currently ready to buy through Yeomans Nissan today. 

100% electric

As the cleanest and most efficient option around, a 100% electric car runs on battery power alone. Charged via a suitable outlet, the lithium-ion battery provides impressive driving range, and also emits zero CO2 gases into the environment. 

Plug-in hybrid

A plug-in hybrid is one that can offer limited all-electric motoring from its battery-powered motor. The rest of the time, the vehicle operates via a traditional petrol or diesel engine, switching seamlessly between the two modes. 


A self-charging hybrid differs from the plug-in in that it simply complements the combustion engine as opposed to powering the vehicle solely. It also benefits from regenerative braking to generate an electrical charge for the battery.
