Plug-in hybrid vehicles, known as PHEVs, give you the best of both worlds. By combining an electric motor with a traditional combustion engine, they dramatically reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
A plug-in hybrid could be the perfect alternative if you don’t feel ready to make the jump to a fully electric car. For shorter journeys a PHEV can use just electricity, however you still have the petrol engine to fall back on if you need to clock up more miles.
Regular motorway drives, short urban commutes or long one off trips - with three distinct driving modes our plug-in-hybrid models offer flexibility to suit all types of drive.
When using e-mode your PHEV will drive purely on electricity. The SUPERB iV in e-mode will give you a range of up to 37 miles* and a top speed of 86mph.
Hit Sport-mode and feel the full power of your PHEV. This mode fully engages both the electric and petrol engines to give you a faster, more dynamic performance.
Hybrid-mode switches between both engines depending on the situation. The electronics optimise the balance between the petrol engine and the electric motor.
Our PHEVs are powered by cutting edge Lithium-ion batteries. If you get a home charger installed you can be sure of having a full battery every time you set off in the morning. There are even Government grants that can save you up to £350 off the installation cost.
When you drive a plug-in hybrid it makes the most of wasted energy. The energy created by braking is converted and stored in the Li-ion battery for later use.
When driving purely on electricity, your PHEV is 100% emission free. Not only is this eco friendly, it also means you’ll be excluded from certain fees including London’s Congestion Charge.
