The Andersen Guide to Maximising your Porsche plug-in hybrid Running Cost Savings

What is a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)?

A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is equipped with both a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE), running on petrol or diesel, and a battery-powered electric motor that can be charged from an external source. This dual system allows the vehicle to function as an electric vehicle (EV) for most trips and switch to conventional fuel for longer journeys.

Maximising your savings with your Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle

Many people believe that a PHEV will minimise costs even without regular charging. This is not the case.

Since electricity is significantly cheaper than petrol and diesel, you can achieve the highest savings by utilising the electric mode as frequently as possible, particularly if you charge your car using a dedicated EV tariff. The Andersen charge point, for example, simplifies this process considerably.

Relying on the engine to recharge the battery increases petrol consumption. Therefore, installing a dedicated home charging point is crucial for maximizing savings. With the range provided by a modern PHEV, you can easily cover at least half of your annual mileage on electric power alone.
The table below illustrates the potential savings from using Porsche plug-in hybrid vehicles compared to petrol costs for equivalent cars. With annual savings exceeding £1,200, investing in an Andersen home charger quickly proves its worth.
