Why Go Electric? We at Yeomans Vauxhall 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

Electric vehicles offer many benefits to the modern motorist. Of course, one of the key features is the ability to perform without harmful CO2 emissions being released into the atmosphere, meaning a clear conscience every time you drive. There’s also the advantage of running costs being far more affordable than petrol and diesel equivalents, while fewer moving components mean that maintenance work for your vehicle is far cheaper. 

The types of electric and hybrid vehicles explained

Selecting the right model is crucial, particularly when moving from fuel power to electric. That’s why we’re pleased to detail the various options available to you. 

100% electric

A fully electric vehicle is one that derives its power from an electrical source, storing it in a lithium-ion battery in the car. This results in an impressive driving range, affordable running costs, and zero CO2 emissions for cleaner motoring. 

Plug-in hybrid

A rechargeable battery-powered motor and a traditional combustion engine work side-by-side in a plug-in hybrid to offer the best of both worlds. Switching effortlessly between the two, you can enjoy better range and cleaner performance. 


Unlike a plug-in hybrid, self-charging hybrids utilise intelligent regenerative braking to convert energy into an electrical charge for the battery. This then adds extra power to the vehicle and helps improve efficiency in your performance.
