In addition to our petrol and diesel cars, THE OUT now offers PHEV and BEV cars.

What is a BEV?

BEV is short for battery electric vehicle, or more frequently known as an electric car. This means the car runs on electricity only, like our Jaguar I-PACE.

What is a PHEV?

PHEV stands for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, so the cars can run on both electricity and fuel. They have a traditional fuel combustion engine and a battery charged electric motor. The plugin element means that it will need to be charged at a charging station.

Charging a PHEV or BEV car

To charge the battery, you’ll need to plug the car into a charge point. You can find out how to charge the cars here:
