What is a hybrid car?
A hybrid car uses either a diesel or petrol engine alongside an electric motor.
Many people believe that hybrids offer the best of both worlds, sitting comfortably between a fuel-driven car and an all-electric car.
Hybrids use less fuel than normal petrol or diesel vehicles because of their electric motor, making them a cost-effective option.
There are different types of hybrid car available, including those that can be plugged in and those that can’t.
Conventional hybrids do not require a charging point as they are able to charge their own battery using a system called regenerative braking. However, this means their electric capability is limited and they can only run on electric at low speeds.
Plug-in hybrids can be charged at the mains, allowing them to run on electric power for about 25 - 40 miles at a time before the fuel engine kicks in.
With a hybrid there is no need to compromise on performance either as they drive like a conventional car and often feature a range of driving modes, allowing you to pick the most efficient mode for your journey.
Cost benefits of leasing a hybrid car

Hybrids are very fuel-efficient and help to save money on petrol or diesel. According to an article from the RAC, hybrids use up to 30% less fuel per mile than conventional fuel-powered cars.
Hybrid cars usually require less maintenance and fewer repairs too as the electric motor helps to prevent excessive wear and tear to the engine.
Other savings you may see when you switch to a hybrid include savings on commuter fees in Clean Air Zones and tax benefits on company cars.
Usually, you will see greater savings when you choose a plug-in hybrid vehicle.
