Electric and Hybrid Cars

What’s the best way to charge the battery – little and often or drain it and then fill it to the top?

Our electric vehicles are designed to maintain excellent battery capacity no matter how you’d like to charge them. There’s no right or wrong way to charge the battery, but we recommend that whenever you’re parked for more than 2 hours you should plug in where possible. This will mean you always have as much battery charge as possible. Of course everyone’s journeys, lifestyle and access to charging are different, so we recommend whatever charging method works for you.
