Choosing and buying

Whether for personal and business use, government subsidies and regulations can make a big difference to an electric car's purchase price. Nowadays, fully electric cars usually qualify for more generous subsidies than hybrids, so check what's available where you live before making the call.

Choosing the best electrified car

When choosing between a hybrid and an all-electric car, your average daily mileage, typical number of passengers, and driving style are all points to consider. Practical factors like range, emissions and storage space are also important, as is the overall purchase price.
