At Johnsons Honda, we know that hybrid and electric vehicles are the way forward and will make the perfect addition to your commute! Not only do they come with a fantastic style and design ethos, but they also provide you with a rejuvenated approach to driving, which therefore means that you can go further for less – just what you want!
Included in this range is the Honda CR-V Hybrid – an impressive SUV that will easily enhance your family’s time on the road, thanks to the Atkinson-type 2.0-litre petrol engine and two electric motors – one electric propulsion motor and one electric generator motor that enables it to perform in petrol, electric and hybrid modes to suit your requirements. There’s also the new Honda e, which perfectly describes the new age of driving with its futuristic design and run and responsive performance.
If you’d like to find out more about either of the hybrid and electric models we have available and the different features that they both have, then please get in touch with a member of our helpful and friendly team at your local Johnsons Honda today. They’ll be able to answer any questions you may have, and also book you in for a test drive at a time most convenient for you.
Pure electric cars have two main components. Instead of a fuel tank and an engine, they feature a battery and a motor. You can charge this battery at home, with either a home charging point or a 3-point plug, or at a public charging point. The vehicle then uses this energy to power the motor, along with all the other features of the car such as temperature control, for emission free driving. To conserve power, the vehicle can also regenerate power that would normally be lost by braking.
Our electric vehicles: Honda e
Much like electric cars, hybrid cars feature a battery and electric motor. However, they still feature a traditional petrol engine and fuel tank. Honda’s hybrids are self-charging which means that you do not need to charge them by plugging in your vehicle. Instead the car is charged by the traditional engine and collecting energy that would normally be lost by braking. The motor then uses this energy to power the car during acceleration and driving at low speeds, when your petrol engine would typically be less efficient. This offers reduced emissions and better miles per gallon.
