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.

At Brendan Foot Supersite we make buying your next vehicle easy. Our experienced team has in-depth knowledge about all vehicles, including electric and hybrid vehicles. We can show you how:

  • Driving a vehicle fully or partially powered by an electric motor is so exciting
  • Maintenance costs can be very low
  • Running cost will make you smile – as little as 1.1L per 100km and for the equivalent of 30 cents per litre
  • Topping up with an overnight recharge is easy as counting sheep
  • A large range of electric vehicles in one place is convenient and makes your choice easy.

We not only sell new and used electric vehicles at Brendan Foot Supersite, we also service them so we are well placed to help you choose the right vehicle for you. A test drive is a great way to experience the differences an electric or hybrid vehicle has to offer. Come and talk to us today.

Electric vehicles - an exciting option for your next vehicle Brendan Foot Supersite


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.
