What are Hybrid cars?
A hybrid (HEV) is powered by an electric motor and a internal combustion engine (ICE), either working separately or together. Two energy sources mean lower exhaust emissions than conventional cars with the goal of improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions.
Honda Hybrid Cars Explained - How does a self-charging Honda hybrid car work?
The Honda range of hybrids (e:HEV), including the big CR-V and compact SUV HR-V and the all-new Jazz and Civic, all have a traditional petrol engine underneath their bonnets, combined with an electric motor like those you’ll find in an electric car. Both work independently, but they can also operate in tandem. So, you can reap the benefits of being powered by whichever is the most efficient for the speed and conditions you’re driving in.
As you drive at low speeds, the car is driving in 100% electric mode (EV) meaning the car is powered by the battery alone and emits zero emissions. When the battery runs low or you are driving at higher speeds, the engine will take over. The battery will recharge whilst driving and take back over when driving at lower speeds plus assist the engine at higher speeds to improve fuel efficiency. Of course all this happen whilst driving normally. The car maximises fuel efficiency without the need to plug in to recharge.
Honda hybrids have an efficient, single-gear transmission, which means they’re very simple to drive. And because they are self-charging, meaning they charge as you drive, there’s no plugging in. You fill Honda hybrids up like normal petrol cars – just not as often.
Hybrid cars have become an increasingly popular choice as we move towards an environmentally friendly, electrified future. And, as an added benefit, they’re affordable to run – saving you some money on your fuel and tax bills. Additionally all of Honda's hybrid cars are ready for the expansion of London's Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)! There are so many reasons to choose hybrid, but we value your time, so we have narrowed it down to 10 top reasons why we think your next car should be a Honda e:HEV hybrid car.
Because hybrid cars spend some of their time running on electric power, there’s less wear and tear on the engine. The brakes last longer, too – they don’t have to work as hard because the regenerative braking system helps slow the car down. As the brakes need replacing less often, servicing costs are kept down. For peace of mind, the Honda i-MMD battery is covered by a comprehensive warranty for the first five years or 100,000km – whichever comes first.
What happens if my hybrid car battery dies?
If your hybrid car battery dies, it'll need to be replaced or the car won't work properly. If you notice the car losing its efficiency or struggling to hold a charge, contact us as soon as possible to arrange a battery change.
How are hybrid car batteries disposed of?
All Honda batteries from electric and hybrid vehicles are recycled through the expanded sustainability partnership with SNAM.
End-life-batteries will either be recycled for ‘second-life’ renewable energy storage uses or for their extractable valuable materials, such as lithium and cobalt.
Is it worth buying a hybrid car?
A hybrid car is more fuel efficient and cost effective than a petrol vehicle. As the world quickly moves towards an electric future, a hybrid car is also a perfect green alternative to the traditional petrol engine, while simultaneously giving you far less range anxiety than an electric vehicle.
Do hybrids last longer?
Due to the combination of a petrol engine and battery power, there's less wear and tear on a hybrid car's engine. Regenerative braking also reduces the wear on brakes, which lowers the need for maintenance, meaning your hybrid car may last longer than a petrol or diesel equivalent.
