What Is a Hybrid Vehicle?

A hybrid car has two different power sources – an electric motor as well as an internal combustion engine (ICE). 

The two power sources can either be used independently or can work in tandem depending on driving factors. 

You may think hybrid vehicles are a relatively new invention to combat climate change, but actually the first hybrid car was invented in 1896. 

By none other than Ferdinand Porsche, may we add!

What’s the Difference between HEVs and PHEVs?

Now you’ve got your head around that, it’s time to discuss the differences between the various hybrid cars. 

There are two main types of hybrid vehicles:

  • HEVs
  • PHEVs

Both types of hybrid vehicles have dual power sources. However, a HEV’s (hybrid electric vehicle) electric motor is charged by driving, whereas a PHEV’s (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle) electric battery is charged up by plug. 

Are Hybrid Vehicles Going to Be Banned?

We understand that many people are worrying that hybrid vehicles are going to be banned – and rightly so!

Last year, the government updated their ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030 to 2035. 

With hybrid cars using an ICE engine, it has left people questioning whether this type of vehicle will also be part of the ban. 

Under the government’s original 2030 ban, hybrid cars were included, but it is yet to be confirmed when – or if – they will be banned by 2035. 

Though we can’t be 100% certain at this stage, we expect hybrids are more likely than not to meet the criteria that other petrol and diesel-based vehicles face in being banned. 

However, it is important to remember that this is just for the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles. Meaning that you can still drive these types of vehicles after 2035, as long as they are not brand new. 

The Benefits of Hybrid Cars

If you’re unsure if leasing hybrid cars is right for you, check out the number of advantages hybrid car leasing offers you. 

You’re Saving the Environment

Climate change is only getting more prevalent as the years go on. Therefore, we all need to do our bit to help save the planet. 

An easy way to do this is to take out a hybrid car lease!

Don’t believe us? Research has shown that hybrid vehicles emit 40% less carbon dioxide compared to conventional cars. 

Who knew switching to a hybrid car would let you feel like a superhero?!

Less Fuel to Buy… Save Those Pennies!

Some people are sceptical of the idea that switching to a hybrid vehicle lease could save them money. 

But we are here to tell you it’s true!

Vehicle manufacturer Suzuki surveyed 2,000 people in the UK to see how much money a hybrid car could save people annually. 

The research found that having a hybrid vehicle could save drivers £386.44 every year when compared to a petrol or diesel-only car! All thanks to the dual power source – so good you’ll be saying thank you twice. 

Say Goodbye to Range Anxiety

Every electric vehicle driver’s worst nightmare is running out of range!

It’s dark, you’re far from home, with mere miles left in range with no charging station in sight. 

Thankfully, with a hybrid car lease, you never have to worry about this at all!

Once again, the two power sources are saving the day. When the electric motor runs out of range, the ICE engine takes over – ensuring you have what it takes to make it all the way home. 

There’s never been a better reason to have a hybrid car lease deal. Take a look at our range of hybrid vehicles to find your perfect lease deal!

Get Exclusive Tax Incentives

Did you know that LeaseCar also offers a range of business car lease deals, too?

We say this because company car drivers could get more tax incentives, such as Benefit in Kind (BiK). 

Personal hybrid car drivers are still eligible for exclusive tax incentives that petrol and diesel vehicle drivers aren’t able to get. 

For example, some hybrid cars are compliant with ULEZ (ultra-low emission zones), Low Emission Zones (LEZ) and Clean Air Zones – which could save you charges each day if you enter into these zones. 

So, not only could you save money by consuming less fuel, but also potentially through tax benefits and charge exemptions too!

The Best Drive of Your Life 

It’s no secret that hybrid vehicles offer a drive like no other. 

Smooth, peaceful, but familiar – a hybrid drive is one that needs to be experienced. 

When driving at reduced speeds – perhaps in city centres – hybrid vehicles are often almost undetectable due to the reduced sounds from the electric motor. 

Giving you, passengers, and passersby an undisturbed moment of bliss.
