Electric and plug-in hybrid cars are becoming increasingly popular with more models to choose from than ever before. There are now over 1,200 public access charge points available across Ireland; however the process of charging an electric car is quite different to putting fuel in a normal petrol or diesel-powered car. Carzone.ie have provided a video on their website to demonstrate how to charge the Volkswagen Passat GTE, which is a plug-in hybrid car, at a local ESB ecars quick charge point in Dublin.
Electric and plug-in stats reveal that, in 2016, more than double the number of new plug-in electric cars have been sold than in 2015.
Carzone’s most-searched electric car in November was the Nissan Leaf, while the website’s most-searched plug-in hybrid car in November was the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.
