Electric Motoring Explained Jeep has introduced plug-in electric powertrains to their new car range.

    Pure Electric The car industry is changing, so expect to see many more electric cars in the not-so-distant future. These ditch the internal combustion engine all together and rely solely on a larger battery pack and an electric motor for 100% emissions-free motoring. Again, electric vehicles – EVs – need to be plugged into an electric supply, but there are fast-charging option for your convenience.
    Plug-In Hybrid Plug-in hybrids combine an internal combustion engine with an eco-friendly motor and battery pack. The two powertrains work in harmony to deliver the most eco-friendly performance possible. Many hybrids can also travel short distances on 100% pure electric power helping to keep emissions to a minimum. As the name suggests, such hybrids need to be plugged into an electricity supply to recharge.
    Mild Hybrid Mild hybrid vehicles team a small electric motor with the car’s internal combustion engine. The motor provides some assistance during acceleration and helps to maximise efficiency, thereby improving performance and reducing emissions.
