Frequently Asked Questions

An ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV) is an electric vehicle, hybrid vehicle, or fuel cell vehicle that emits less than 75g/km of CO2. This makes them significantly more environmentally friendly than petrol and diesel cars, which typically emit around 150g/km of CO2.

There are three main types of electric vehicles: Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs).

A hybrid car has both an electric motor and a petrol or diesel engine, while an electric car only has an electric motor. This means that hybrids can use the petrol or diesel engine to power the car when the battery runs out, while electric cars cannot. Hybrids are perfect for longer trips, as they can also use the petrol or diesel engine to recharge the battery. Electric cars are perfect for short trips around town. The growing number of charging stations is making it possible to do longer trips in an electric vehicle.

A hydrogen fuel cell car is a type of electric vehicle that uses a fuel cell to create electricity. Hydrogen fuel cells have a much longer range than other types of electric vehicles and can be refueled in minutes. However, the infrastructure for hydrogen fuel cells is still being developed, so FCEVs are not yet as widely available as other types of electric vehicles.

An electric vehicle has zero emissions if it runs purely on electricity. This means that the car has no petrol or diesel engine, and the only emissions come from the power source that generates the electricity used to charge the car’s battery.

Electric vehicles come in a range of different sizes and styles, so the maximum distance they can travel on a single charge varies. However, many of the latest EVs can travel over 200 miles / 320km on a single charge. This varies between the different models of EVs available, Different types of EVs have different maximum ranges, so it’s important to do your research before you buy. Factors such as type of terrain, climate, and speed can all impact the distance an EV can travel on a single charge.

The range of an electric vehicle can be impacted by a number of different factors. Some of these include the terrain you’re driving on, the temperature, how fast you’re traveling, and the weight of the car. Larger vehicles tend to have a lower maximum range than smaller cars, and EVs that are designed for use in urban areas typically have a shorter range than those that are designed for longer journeys. Additionally, the temperature can have a significant impact on the range of an EV. In hotter climates, the battery will lose power more quickly, while in colder climates, the battery will perform better. This is why it’s important to consider the climate you live in when choosing an electric vehicle.

Yes – there are a number of ways to maximise the range of your electric vehicle. One way is to reduce the amount of power that you use while driving. You can do this by driving more slowly, using less climate control within the vehicle, and avoiding heavy acceleration and braking. Another way to maximize range is to charge your car using a smart charger. Finally, it’s important to remember that the maximum range stated by the manufacturer is not always achievable. The range of an electric vehicle can vary depending on the driving conditions and the individual car.
