Why Go Electric? Making the switch from petrol or diesel power to electric is likely to be one of the biggest in your automotive life, so understanding the options available to you is key. That’s why we at South West Nissan are delighted to provide you with all you need to know to make the right decision.

Benefits of buying electric

Choosing an all-electric vehicle comes with a number of benefits, not least the peace of mind of knowing that you’re playing your part in reducing harmful emissions into the environment. As more and more manufacturers enter the market with efficient and clean models, technology is rapidly improving while prices are dropping, meaning that the opportunity to choose an electric vehicle has never been better nor more affordable. And, with running costs equivalent to between 3-4p per mile meaning great savings, why not make the switch?

Key benefits

  • Cleaner performance
  • Improved running costs
  • More affordable maintenance
  • Nationwide charging outlets for convenience

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles Hybrids use a combination of two power sources - a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor. You can choose between self-charging hybrids and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles.
    Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles A Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle is more commonly referred to as a PHEV. It uses a combination of two types of power, a traditional combustion engine and an electric motor.
    Battery Electric Vehicles Electric cars use batteries for power. These batteries require recharging and the range will vary depending on the make and model. You can charge these at home and on the go.
