Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles

A range of cleaner fuels for the environment.

Alternative fuels are very much a consideration. Legislation means that environmental and general costs can be reduced in certain circumstances whilst reducing environmental impact.

Current legislation is increasingly aggressive in respect of corporate and individual taxes for higher emissions vehicles. Alternatively Fuelled Vehicles are now more popular than ever. Let us help you identify the best policy and vehicles for your business:

Hybrid

  • A vehicle powered by a petrol or diesel engine as well as an electric battery
  • Battery is charged from excess energy from the engine and braking
  • Driver doesn't have to do anything different to a normal petrol or diesel car
  • Limited electric driving range as vehicle cannot be plugged in
  • Example: Toyota Prius

Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV or Pure EV)

  • A vehicle only powered by electricity
  • Charged by an external power source
  • Regenerative braking helps to extend the driving range
  • Example: Nissan Leaf

Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEVs)

  • A vehicle which combines battery & electric Internal combustion engine (ICE)
  • Ability to charge the battery from an external power source
  • Vehicle can be driven by the ICE, by the electric drive motor or both together
  • Example: Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)

  • A vehicle which operates by taking hydrogen fuel and reacting it with oxygen to produce electricity
  • Produces zero C02 and air pollutant tailpipe emissions
  • Water is the only waste product
  • Example: Toyota Mirai

Extended Range Electric Vehicle (E-REV)

  • A vehicle which combines a battery, electric drive motor and an ICE
  • The electric motor always drives the wheels
  • The ICE acts as a generator when the battery is depleted
  • Example: BMW i3 with Range Extender
