Of course, when looking to reduce your carbon footprint, knowing precisely what type of vehicle you’re investing in is key. With Hyundai, you have the choice of electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid options, but what exactly do these terms mean?

Electric: Running on nothing but a battery powered motor, electric vehicles require you to plug-in your vehicle to an electricity source - either at home or at public charging stations - in order to replenish the battery.

Hybrid: Hybrid - or even mild hybrid - vehicles make use of a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor, switching seamlessly between the two. These models also self charge, converting energy normally lost when braking into and electrical charge for the battery.

Plug-In Hybrid: Unlike self-charging options, a plug-in hybrid requires you to charge the battery using an electrical outlet. The result is often a hybrid that can offer a greater range of all-electric performance compared to regular hybrids.
