Benefits of Battery Electric Vehicles

As they run on battery power alone, an electric vehicle does not produce any emissions from the tailpipe. Simple to charge and easy to drive, they can also offer lower running costs than a conventional vehicle. In cities, you can drive them in low emission and congestion charge zones with no fee.

Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) A Hybrid Electric Vehicle from Toyota has the ability to switch from combustion engine power to all-electric power seamlessly, emitting zero emissions in this mode. The battery is self charging and does not require plugging in.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) Often providing an increased all-electric range, Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles require the battery to be charged either at home or at a public charge point, and will provide additional power and improved fuel economy to the combustion engine.
Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) As the name suggests, a Battery Electric Vehicle operates on battery power alone, meaning the vehicle emits zero CO2 emissions and is cost effective to run, with a selection of home and public charge solutions available.
Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) Similar to a BEV, a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle is powered entirely by electrical energy. However, this is produced by a fuel cell stack from hydrogen gas stored within the vehicle, resulting in the only emissions being water.
