WHY CHOOSE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?


FUEL SAVINGS: If you drive ~20,800km per year, it will cost you ~€265 to charge it with the ESB at your home. Whereas the same mileage would cost you over €1630 in an efficient diesel car.

0% BIK tax applicable to the car when being used as a company car: meaning no annual BIK tax bill coming off your salary.

FREE CHARGING at all public charge points in Ireland.

LOWEST MOTOR TAX BAND applicable in Ireland. You only pay €120 per year in motor tax if you drive a BEV.

GOVERNMENT GRANT of up to €5000 to assist you towards buying your all-electric car. Additionally, you can claim up to €600 through the SEAI to install powerful chargers such as the BMW i Wallbox charger in your home; almost halving the installation costs.

REDUCED TOLL CHARGES when you travel through any eFlow toll bridge (M50; Tunnel) in the Republic of Ireland. This reduction varies with regard to what type of car you drive; however for a BEV owner, your M50 toll could be reduced as much as 75%! For daily M50 toll users, this could equal up to €500 yearly savings!

VRT REBATE of up to €5000 for BEV's and up to €2500 for PHEV's.

Electric/Hybrid Showroom

BMW

BMW's hybrid range is one of the best in the world.

The BMW Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) range is designed to deliver potentially zero emissions at the point of use - so you can still drive the BMW model you love, without contributing to potentially harmful vehicle emissions.

There are two strands to the BMW PHEV range:
1. The iconic BMWi family and the
2. Road-ready BMW iPerformance collection.
The BMWi range is focused on the most cutting edge electric vehicle design, while iPerformance takes this innovation and encapsulates it within a classic BMW design.

JAGUAR

The Jaguar i-Pace is the winner of the 2019 Green Car award.

The i-Pace is a Jaguar above all else - a true drivers car. It's electric motors and near perfect weight distribution delivers 697Nm of instant torque and sports car agility.

The i-Pace's 90kWh battery is made up of high energy density lithium-ion pouch cells. It's design and state of the art thermal management system supports longevity and periods of sustained maximum power. One full charge provides a range of 470km on the WLTP cycle*.

Whether this is your first or next electric vehicle, discover how Jaguar i-Pace fits seamlessly with your lifestyle.

LAND ROVER

Land Rover Plug-in Hybrid - our most innovative powertrain yet.

The P400e brings the benefits of electrification to the legendary capabilities of Range Rover; delivering ultra-low emissions with an EV range of up to 48km.

PHEV delivers a virtually silent drive in full electric vehicle (EV) mode, and for optimal refinement, ensures a seamless transition between the petrol engine and electric motor.

When it comes to capability and performance, the P400e is precise and uncompromising and is fully capable of handling off-road situations such as wading and rock crawl.


Peugeot

A major player in the technological revolution, Peugeot tackles the energy transition with conviction.

An exciting future lies ahead, whereby the customer can choose what kind of carbon footprint they leave behind them. With new territories to clear and new challenges to take up, the adventure of the Peugeot brand continues.

Get ready to discover our vision of the automobile, embodied by the Peugeot e-design models that include the new e-208. The Peugeot driving experience is enriched by the new driving modes which bring renewed pleasure and sensations thanks to the magical effect of the electric mode (100% electric), the efficiency of the 4-wheel drive mode (Hybrid4), the power of the sports mode, and the versatility of the hybrid mode.


MINI Electric

The first all-electric MINI heralds a supercharged evolutionary step that fuses MINI go-kart feeling and iconic design.

Experience instant torque and unrivaled handling. With power routed directly through the transmission, acceleration is instant in comparison to petrol engines. A new power source adds to MINI's already hallmarked handling delivering unbridled driving fun.

The all-electric MINI is so silent that we had to install noise-emitting acoustic protection for pedestrians to warn them of the cars presence. It brings peace to typically noisy city driving.

The high voltage, 96 cell, 32.6kWh battery pack is mounted to the floor between the front seats and below the back seats, giving the vehicle an extra low centre of gravity which improves handling and stability.

The MINI Electric. Coming March 2020.

HOW DOES A PLUG-IN HYBRID (PHEV) WORK?




A hybrid vehicle uses the eDrive sytem - a petrol engine and electric engine working together to reduce emissions and fuel consumption without restricting range. The electric motor powers the car within certain speeds and ranges, then the conventional combustion petrol engine kicks in to ensure power and long-range performance remain available. New eBoost technology in some hybrid models means you can accelerate on electric power alone, reducing fuel consumption even when using the combustion engine.

HOW DOES A HYBRID (HEV) WORK?




Hybrid electric vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine and an electric motor, which uses energy stored in batteries. A hybrid electric vehicle cannot be plugged in to charge the battery. Instead, the battery is charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine. The extra power provided by the electric motor can potentially allow for a smaller engine. The battery can also power auxiliary loads like sound systems and headlights, and reduce engine idling when stopped. Together, these features result in better fuel economy without sacrificing performance.

HOW DOES A BATTERY ELECTRIC (BEV) WORK?




All-electric vehicles (BEVs) have an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. The vehicle uses a large traction battery pack to power the electric motor and must be plugged in to a charging station or wall outlet to charge. Because it runs on electricity, the vehicle emits no exhaust from a tailpipe and does not contain the typical liquid fuel components, such as a fuel pump, fuel line, or fuel tank.
