Every plug-in hybrid comes with a 3-pin plug as standard, which plugs directly into a regular 3-pin wall socket.
You can also upgrade to a Type 2 connector, enabling you to charge your vehicle at any one of several charging stations across the country.
Our plug-in hybrids can be plugged into charging stations up to 22kW, but their charging speed is limited to 3.7kW. Here is what this means for your 0-100% charging times:
|3-pin socket||2.3kW||5 hours|
|Type 2 "Slow"||3.7kW||3 hours|
|Type 2 "Fast"||7kW||3 hours|
|Type 2 "Rapid"||22kW||3 hours|
A mile in a petrol car can cost anywhere from 12p – 21p. Charge up your plug-in hybrid every night and you can make daily savings – particularly on short journeys like your morning commute.

Although the 3-pin socket cable we supply can be plugged straight into your wall, we still recommend getting a professional to install a dedicated charging point at your home. This will give you access to safer and faster charging whenever you need it.
All our plug-in hybrids are eligible for the Government’s Electric Homecharge Scheme, which provides you grant funding of up to £500 or 75% of the cost of installing a charger at home. Find out more by clicking here.
