Using two or more distinct power sources, hybrid vehicles guarantee cleaner air and greater fuel efficiency meaning they are beneficial for both the driver and the environment.
Donnelly Group customers can view a selection of hybrid vehicles from manufacturers such as Honda, Mitsubishi, Peugeot and Toyota. To speak to a member of the Donnelly Electric Vehicle team in Northern Ireland or to arrange a test drive, please contact your nearest showroom.
What is a Hybrid Vehicle?
A hybrid vehicle employs two different power sources, in most cases combining an electric motor which uses energy stored in a battery with an internal combustion engine which can be ran on conventional fuel.
The use of an electric motor and stop/start technology in a hybrid car means they are very efficient and typically use less fuel than similar conventional vehicles.
Grants and am I Eligible?
From the 1st of September 2014, electric vehicle owners can avail of a grant of up to £900 for the supply and installation of a smart home charging point from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) making it easier to have a chargepoint right at your home or place of work.
Electric vehicle owners will order their charge point from a list of accredited suppliers who will then install the charge point. After installation and commissioning, the charge point supplier will re-claim the grant and OLEV will reimburse the supplier with the cost.
