Electric vehicles are smooth and quiet to drive, plus they are powerful and very economical. They are a lot like driving any other car – but a lot more fun.
There are a few different types of electric vehicles available:
- Full electric (EV)
- Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) which use both a petrol and an electric engine powered by a plug-in battery
- Full hybrid vehicles which use both a petrol and electric engine with the petrol engine charging the battery.

Types of Electric Vehicles
To help you understand the different types of electric vehicles available here’s some more information:
Electric Vehicles, or EVs, do not use any fuel at all – they run solely off a battery.
A Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle, or PHEV, has both a petrol and an electric engine powered by a plug-in battery.
Full hybrid vehicles use both a petrol and electric engine.
Charging Electric Vehicles
Charging your vehicle is easy and convenient too. Most daily vehicle travel is over a small distance so charging is not an issue. For longer distances, there are large savings and plenty of ways to stay charged.
PHEVs and hybrids are self-charging, and for EVs there are fast charge options. Some vehicles have a range of 400km, and options to charge at home, at work or at the 127 charging stations across New Zealand.
