If you are looking to switch to a hybrid for your next car then you really should consider a used car from Motorline ŠKODA. ŠKODA has quickly emerged as a market leader in electric technology, bringing the groundbreaking, high-quality edge that is synonymous with ŠKODA to new and exciting hybrid models such as the Superb iV and Octavia iV.
Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) are powered by a fusion of traditional petrol combustion engine and battery power. They require a power source to recharge but they are extremely fuel-efficient, particularly on short journeys where only the electric power is used. This makes them hugely popular but there are more benefits than just fuel economy. They are kinder to the environment as they produce far fewer CO2 emissions, they are incredibly easy to charge, and they even use regenerative braking to store the energy created during the braking process for an additional charge.
If charging is your biggest concern, then let us reassure you that you have nothing to worry about. It is simple and easy. You can attach quickly to a standard household outlet, install a dedicated home charge point or visit a public charging station. These can be found in supermarkets and petrol stations across the country and often have rapid charge options which can achieve an 80% charge in less than an hour.
In terms of driving style, ŠKODA’s range of PHEVs is smooth and near-silent. The switch between electric driving mode on short journeys and low speeds to petrol on long journeys and high speeds is seamless, so you won’t even notice the change from electric to petrol power.
The Superb iV is available in a hatch or estate body, for versatility and enhanced practicality. The Octavia iV has won numerous awards and is a widely popular family car that has been a favourite ever since its debut in 1996. The dynamic driving that is added through the addition of the plug-in hybrid powertrain simply enhances its appeal.
Here at Motorline ŠKODA, we have a fantastic range of used PHEVs which you can view online. When you find one you like, simply just get in touch to book your test drive.
