On average a 100-mile trip in an electric car costs significantly less than a petrol equivalent, with the Mii Electric running at an average of 3.4p per mile, compared to the petrol Mii running at 10.13p per mile.
Charging technology is advancing all the time, with rapid chargers now able to top up some electric cars in less than an hour*.
SEAT engineer their electric cars to go the distance and give you plenty of mileage, meaning you can relax knowing you'll always get to your destination.
Switching to electric may make significant whole-life savings for your business. There are also government incentives that might be available to you and help sweeten the deal.
BEVs are powered by electricity alone. They are zero-emission while driving and could come with plenty of money-saving benefits, including tax exemptions. The SEAT Mii electric is an example of a BEV and is SEAT's first ever pure electric car.
PHEVs – Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles
PHEVs combine the power of both a petrol engine and an electric motor. The Leon e-HYBRID for example can run purely on electricity for around 30 miles, but also give you a petrol engine to fall back on if you need to drive further.
MHEVs – Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicles
When you drive a MHEV, the petrol engine is supported by an electric motor. The electric motor allows the car’s engine to switch off when coasting, braking or stopped, and quickly turns it back on when needed.
