The different types of electric cars

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs)

Electric vehicles are completely charged by a battery that can be charged at home or by public charging stations. Charging stations are becoming more common as electric vehicles are slowly becoming the norm and are frequently being rolled out in more locations.

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs)

Plug-in hybrids have a battery-powered motor as well as having a petrol or diesel engine. If you wish to do so you can drive shorter journeys electrically powered only and switch to using petrol/diesel for longer journeys.

Similar to electric vehicles, the vehicle needs to be plugged in to recharge the electric battery.

Full hybrid electric vehicles (FHEVs)

Fully hybrid electric vehicles are powered by both a battery and a petrol or diesel engine and the car switches between these automatically so you’d only be able to cover short distances using electric only. Full hybrid vehicles don’t need to be plugged in to charge.

Your electric car will be financed with a hire purchase agreement

Hire purchase is a loan that allows you to lease your new electric car whilst paying set monthly instalments, during an agreed period of time. Once all the instalments have been paid, the car is paid for and is yours. If you would like some examples of how much monthly payments would cost, you can use our helpful car finance calculator.

Electric car finance FAQs

How much does an electric car cost to charge?

The cost of charging an electric car depends on the vehicle, how frequently you’re charging the car and where you’re charging it so it’s hard to say an exact cost.

As a brief estimate, for an electric car with a 60kWh battery and 200-mile range charging the car at your home should cost around £9.20 for a full charge. Public charging points are usually free unless they are rapid charging stations, which on average cost around £6.50 for a 30-minute charge.

The cost of charging an electric car is said to be around one-fifth of the cost of the price of fuel.

Electric cars have both cheaper running costs and tax so rest assured that whatever the cost of charging your electric car will be, it will most likely be cheaper than owning a petrol or diesel car.

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

The time it takes to charge an electric car depends on the type of battery and the type of charging point you use. The larger the battery and slower the charger, the longer it will take.

As an example, a 60kWh battery takes roughly around 8 hours to charge from the battery being empty. There are rapid chargers and rapid charging points that charge the car a lot quicker than this.

Can I apply for electric car finance with bad credit?

If you have a poor credit score and are worried that it will affect your chances of getting a good finance deal for an electric car, don’t panic. We offer finance options for people with poor credit. We take your credit score and compare a number of lenders who will consider your credit tier so we can give back to you the best and cheapest option of the bunch, that you will be likely accepted for.

If you are worried about having to pay a big upfront deposit, we also have 0 deposit options that take the weight off your shoulders of having to pay a large sum deposit. Not paying a deposit allows you to start financing your new electric car without any initial payment.

If my application fails, will it affect my credit score?

Our application process for electric car loans involves a ‘soft search’. This is an initial search of your credit report and isn’t as deep and detailed as a regular credit check - this does not affect your credit rating.
