PHEVs have a combustion engine and an electric motor, which means their range is not limited. The two can operate together or independently, providing the flexibility of local emission-free electric driving over shorter distances and efficient petrol power for longer journeys.


PHEVs offer impressive lifetime savings over combustion engine models.
