What is Hybrid?

Intelligently combining a petrol engine with a electric motor, our full hybrid cars provide exhilarating performance as well as reduced emissions and superior fuel economy.


How does Hybrid work?

Hybrids never need to be plugged in – that’s because the hybrid battery is re-chargedduring the course of driving. When braking, the electric motor goes into reverse, acting as an electric brake and generating electricity. This is fed into the hybrid battery to re-charge it.


There’s no need to plug in, the car charges itself


Hybrid cars achieve outstanding levels of fuel efficiency through a combination of advanced hybrid technology, finely tuned aerodynamics and the use of lightweight materials.

  • Hybrid engine switches seamlessly between petrol and electric power.
  • Class leading low emissions and zero emissions when running on electric power alone.
  • Intelligently recovers and recycles energy that is lost in conventional systems.


Better fuel economy


Improved Air Quality

Hybrid cars ensure the lowest possible environmental impact throughout the life of the vehicle.

  • Class leading low Co2 emissions
  • Virtually zero NOx emissions

Hybrid cars are dynamic and powerful - delivering optimum power, acceleration and dynamic handling.

  • Seamless take over from electric to petrol engine through acceleration.
  • When accelerating at speed, the electric motor provides an instantly commanding surge of power with impressive smoothness.

Seamless performance
