Your questions answered

If you are thinking about switching to an Electric car or If you’re new to the world of electric and hybrid cars, our simple guide will help to answer all of your questions.

​What is Electric?

Close

In simple terms, energy is stored in a large battery, which drives a powerful electric motor. Easy. To charge it, simply plug it into a home chargepoint, or a public charger when you’re out and about, and the car will take care of the rest. Plug it in at home, and you wake up every morning with a ‘full tank’ – in the case of the New Kia e-Niro, that’s a potential 282-mile range! The car then drives on battery power alone, there is no need to add petrol or diesel. It can even add charge to the battery while you are driving by recovering energy that would normally be lost – when braking for example. 

What is a Hybrid or Self-Charging Hybrid?

Close

What is a Self-Charging Hybrid?

A Self-Charging Hybrid car uses a combination of electric power and a conventional combustion engine to deliver remarkable fuel economy, seamless power and lower emissions.

Reasons to drive a Kia Hybrid car

There are many substantial benefits to owning a Self-Charging Hybrid car.

Lower emissions

Because the electric motor assists with acceleration there is less strain on the engine which helps lower emissions. The electric motor can also take over at low speeds – in stop/start traffic for example. That means the engine isn’t running for as long, so cleaner air for everybody.

Reduced running costs

Using less fuel is not only good for the environment it’s also good for your finances! Improved fuel economy means less money spent on fuel, and less time wasted at the pumps. The lower emissions also mean a reduced VED rate and lower BIK tax.

Doesn’t require you to make any changes

Not sure about a plug-in vehicle, or don’t have the option of a home charge point? Then a hybrid car might be for you, as you use it like a conventional car. Clever electronics take care of how the energy is used, all you have to worry about is keeping it topped up with petrol.

Relaxing drive

The assistance from the electric motor means the engine doesn’t have to work as hard and that makes for a quieter journey. The added torque also means effortless acceleration for a more relaxing driving experience.

What is Plug-in Hybrid? (PHEV)

Close

What is a Plug-In Hybrid car?

A Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) is perfect for those who want to travel further in electric mode. It’s got a bigger battery than a Self-Charging Hybrid, and can give you a 30 mile electric range. When that electric range is depleted, the car automatically switches to Self-Charging Hybrid mode.

Reasons to drive a Kia Plug-In car

There are plenty of benefits to owning a Plug-In Hybrid car, here are some of our favourites.

Flexibility

If you aren’t quite ready to go fully electric, a plug-in hybrid is the perfect compromise. You get around 30-miles of electric driving, but you always have the petrol engine for longer trips.

Low emissions driving

When in electric mode a plug-in hybrid produces zero emissions. As most of your driving will be on battery power, this is particularly helpful for improving air quality in urban areas.

Cheap to run

Electricity is much cheaper than petrol or diesel, so when running on battery power, your journey may cost less than a third of what it would in a combustion-engine car. There are tax incentives, too. VED is lower for PHEV drivers, and for company car drivers BIK tax is also reduced. There’s even a grant available that puts £350 towards your home charger. Vehicle eligibility and grant figure correct as at June 2020. UK sales only (excludes Channels Islands and Isle of Man). Grant scheme may be withdrawn and eligibility/amounts may change at any time without prior notice.

Charge at home

In the UK, the vast majority of electric car charging is done at home. This is usually the most convenient and cost-effective way to charge. Get home, plug in, wake up with a full charge. Brilliant! To charge from home, it is best to get a home charge point installed. A dedicated home EV charger will charge your car much faster than using a three-pin plug – up to three times quicker! It’s safer, too.

You may be eligible to receive a contribution towards the cost and installation (up to a maximum of £350) of a home wall box with the government’s Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS).

Relaxing drive

When running on battery power, PHEVs are incredibly quiet inside, making for a relaxed atmosphere. Driving is easy, too, because electric motors produce maximum torque at all revs, so acceleration is instant.

What is Mild Hybrid? (MHEV)

Close

What is a Mild Hybrid?

A Mild Hybrid car is very similar to a Self-Charging Hybrid car, but with a smaller battery. So it can’t drive on battery power alone. The battery is there to help the petrol or diesel engine perform more economically.

Reasons to drive a Kia Mild Hybrid car

There are many substantial benefits to owning a Mild Hybrid car. Here are a few of the best.

Lower emissions

Because the electric motor can assist with the acceleration there is less strain on the engine. It also allows the engine to switch off more regularly – when coasting for example. This means lower emissions and cleaner air for everybody.

Reduced running costs

Using less fuel is not only good for the environment it’s also good for your finances! Improved fuel economy means less money spent on fuel, and less time wasted at the pumps. The lower emissions also mean a reduced VED rate and lower BIK tax.

Lower costs without changing how you use your car

Not quite ready to switch to a plug-in vehicle, or don’t have the option of a home charge point? Then a hybrid car might be for you. It doesn’t require you to do anything different than you would do in a conventional car. Clever electronics take care of how the energy is recovered and used. All you have to worry about is keeping it topped up with fuel.

Relaxing drive

The assistance from the electric motor means the engine doesn’t have to work as hard and that makes for a quieter journey. The added torque also means effortless acceleration for a more relaxing driving experience.

Lower initial cost

While a mild hybrid doesn’t offer the same level of benefits as a full self-charging hybrid, the mild hybrid’s smaller battery means the initial purchase cost is lower.

Charging: All about Charging

Close

Hybrid and electric cars are most commonly charged at home, but can be charged at work, or at thousands of public chargers. In the UK, the vast majority of electric car charging is done at home. This is usually the most convenient and cost-effective way to charge. Get home, plug in, wake up with a full charge. Brilliant! To charge from home, it is best to get a home charge point installed. A dedicated home EV charger will charge your car much faster than using a three-pin plug – up to three times quicker! It’s safer, too. A home chargepoint from Pod Point – Kia’s charging partner – is weatherproof, so you can of course charge when it’s raining. The charge point is also smart, and WiFi enabled which means it can keep track of how much you have spent on charging – so you can invoice for travel costs for example. It can even save you money by charging when electricity is cheapest.

Cost: Cheaper than you think

Close

How much does an Electric car cost?

Whichever you choose, it may surprise you how much you can save in the long run. There are some great deals, government grants and tax incentives that make owning an electric car more affordable than you might think.

Benefits of choosing Electric

There are lots of cost advantages to owning an electric car. Here are some you might find surprising.

Lower maintenance costs

Petrol and diesel engines are incredibly complex and have hundreds of components that can wear, fail and need replacing. Electric cars on the other hand have just three main components and far fewer moving parts than a combustion engine. That means servicing and maintenance is simpler and cheaper, which saves you money.

Tax benefits

There is no yearly or first-year tax with an electric vehicle, which could save you around £500 over the first three years of ownership compared to a mid-sized petrol or diesel equivalent.

Big savings on BiK tax for company car drivers

Company car tax is already drastically lower if you drive an electric car. From 6th April 2020 battery electric cars are now 0% BiK. This increases to just 1% post April 6th 2021 and 2% in 2022/23- that represents a massive saving over a conventional car.

Electricity is cheaper than petrol or diesel

Electricity is cheap, particularly when you charge at home. When you look at cost per mile, driving on electricity can cost around a third of an equivalent petrol or diesel car.
