You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Electric Vehicles at Pickerings Auto Group
Pickerings Auto Group is Townsville’s largest range of Electric Vehicles. We have electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid models across five of our new car brands – MG, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Kia and MINI. With 10 models to choose from, Pickerings Auto Group makes the change from petrol to electric (or in between) easy!
So, what is the difference between Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid and Full Electric?
Hybrid is the most common form petrol-electric vehicle and probably the one you’ve heard about the most. A Hybrid car cannot be plugged into a power source, the battery is charged through regenerative braking. Hybrid cars consume less fuel and emit less CO2 than a petrol or diesel vehicle.
The best of both worlds. The Plug-in Hybrid or PHEV links a petrol engine and electric motor together. PHEVs can provide a larger driving range on electric power meaning owners can travel longer distances without using any petrol.
If you’re ready to embrace full electric this means you say goodbye to petrol! Your car runs entirely on electricity. Plug it into a regular domestic power point or purpose-built home charger and you’re good to go! MG, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Kia and MINI all offer full electric models, contact us to take one for a drive.
