With an increasing number of Hybrid cars being introduced across the board from pretty much every manufacturer, it's tough to know which one is best for you, and which one to choose as your next car.
Here we explain the key differences that separate Full, Mild and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles in simple, plain English.
The main differences between the three types of Hybrid vehicle are as follows:
Full Hybrids and Mild Hybrids do not need to be plugged in.
Mild Hybrids cannot travel on electric power only.
Plug-in Hybrids are able to complete 15 to 50 mile (depending on the individual model's capabilities) journeys on electric power alone, provided they are fully charged.
Full Hybrids and Mild Hybrids will use at least some fuel for all journeys.
