EV & Hybrid Vehicles

The presence of Electric and Hybrid vehicles in the Australian market continues to grow year on year.

With cutting edge technology being implemented, improved driving ranges and a global shift in environmental awareness, an even bright light is shining on Electric and Hybrid vehicles.

At Callaghan Motors, we are looking forward and embracing these future technologies with our ever-increasing range of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.


About Hybrid Vehicles

Hybrid vehicles combine the power of a petrol engine with an electric motor. A hybrid vehicle does not need to be plugged in to charge the battery, instead the battery is charged through regenerative braking and by the internal combustion engine (ICE), meaning that the car battery is recharged while you're driving your car.

The combined features of a petrol engine and an electric motor result in a better fuel economy without sacrificing performance. Plus, it has lower emissions compared to a traditional ICE engine.

Why Choose Hybrid?

Driving a Hybrid is like driving a vehicle with an ICE, so there's little compromise on performance. If you're driving out on the open road, the petrol engine takes over for efficient high-speed driving, but around town and on shorter trips you get all the power and torque advantages of an electric vehicle plus lower CO2 emissions.




About Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles

A plug-in hybrid (PHEV) vehicle functions similarly to a hybrid car, except that it can be plugged in to charge the battery, it doesn't solely rely on regenerative breaking to charge it's battery.

It does require the battery to be charged at regular intervals by plugging your vehicle in to charge at a charging station, similarly with a fully electric vehicle it is good practice to charge your PHEV overnight when your car is parked at home.

A PHEV is designed to run off electric until the battery power runs out, after which a fuel driven engine takes over.


Why Choose Plug-In Hybrid

A Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle is a brilliant choice for consumers who generally use their car for a short commute, but still need the flexibility to travel longer distances without the having to stop and charge their battery.


About Electric Vehicles

All-electric vehicles or EV's have a fully electric motor in place of an internal combustion engine, meaning there is no need to go to the petrol station to fill up.

You might be wondering how much it costs to charge your car. The costs of charging your car are significantly lower than the cost of fuel. On average, it costs $5.00* to fully charge your car.

You might also be wondering about where you can get a charger from and how much it costs? The Victorian Government is currently offering a rebate for fully electric vehicles, this means you can install a charger in your home at no extra cost*.



Why Choose Electric?

As EV's don't have a traditional ICE, the instant acceleration response is superior to a petrol or diesel engine, meaning there is no lag time when you put your foot down on the accelerator. In addition to this, there are reduced fuel costs as you charge the vehicle in place of filling up with fuel, the overall maintenance costs are lower, reduced air pollution and many more advantages.

Federal Government EV FBT Exemption 

If you’re considering a novated lease, a new Electric or Low Emission Vehicle is a smart investment.

Not only will they save you a considerable amount on fuel and have lower overall running costs because of fewer mechanical moving parts, but legislation for the Fringe Benefits Tax (FBT) exemption for electric vehicles has been passed by Federal parliament.
