Plug-in vehicles use rechargeable batteries as their main power source and a secondary petrol or diesel supply to fuel the car. These batteries can be charged from various different electrical sources, most commonly a charge point or electrical socket installed in your home. Plug-in vehicles require a longer charge duration than the hybrid due to the vehicles using the battery as their main power source.
In Northern Ireland, to encourage consumers to purchase the Plug-In hybrid vehicle, grants are available for motorists to incentivise the purchase of a car which has lower emissions and therefore assisting with the reduction of green house gases.
