It's time to take the first step towards the future of driving with Renault's E-Tech range that includes electric, plug-in hybrid and hybrid vehicles. The diverse collection of vehicles are suitable for a variety of different needs. Whether it's the compact and fully electric Renault Zoe of plug-in hybrid Captur, enjoy the benefits of E-Tech technology all whilst saving on fuel.
Combining combustion and electric technology, Renault's plug-in hybrid technology is versatile and robust. Hit the EV mode button to enjoy 100% electric driving for a distance of 30 miles without burning fuel then switch to Hybrid or Sport for longer journeys to maximise your vehicles power. With a higher capacity battery than hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrids can store more energy with the capability of a greater range when in fully electric mode.
Enjoy zero emmission driving with less noise and no fuel costs in one of Renault's fully electric vehicles. Never run out of battery as you can charge at home or at one of the public charge points that can be found via ZapMaps. Wave goodbye to regular maintenance of your car like oil changes and spark plug changes with a simple but advanced electric powertrain.
Embrace Renault's range of hybrid vehicles without ever having to be plugged in. Driving pleasure and efficiency are at the core of Renault's hybrid vehicles with a combustion engine that combines two electric engines and a battery. Choose your driving mode to suit short or long journeys and reduce your consumption by 40%.
While both make an energy-efficient choice, new electric and hybrid vehicles are powered differently. Electric vehicles run solely on battery power and regularly need to be charged, whereas hybrid vehicles shift seamlessly between two power sources that can work independently or simultaneously.
Generally, electric vehicles boast an impressive range. This depends on the model but, as an example, the Nissan Leaf covers up to 239 miles, while the Kia EV6 allows for over 316 miles on a fully charged battery.
There are over 330 free-to-use public charging points in Northern Ireland and these can be easily found from your phone using the Zap Map app. Furthermore, additional rapid charging points are expected to be added to the NI network by 2023. If you’d prefer to charge your new electric car in NI at home, government grants are available for installation.
It’s free to charge at any public charge point. For home charging points, costs vary depending on your energy provider and the specific model of your new electric car. On average, you could expect a full charge to cost between £5 and £10.
With a rapid charging point, you can charge your electric vehicle in as little as 45-60 minutes. EV drivers often use public charge points at any convenient opportunity to maintain a healthy level of charge. Charging overnight at home, meanwhile, is a time-efficient way to guarantee a fully charged battery.
Yes! Electric vehicles help to cut fuel emissions, promote sustainable driving and reduce our carbon footprint. Without doubt, switching to an electric vehicle in NI helps to fight climate change.
