Did you know that in order for a hybrid car to move it uses at least one electric motor and a gasoline engine, with the system recovering energy through regenerative braking?
It’s a lot to take in, especially for someone who is not really into cars! But if we can put this in one simple sentence… in a hybrid car, there are times that the electric motor does all the work and some other times it's the gas engine, and sometimes these two work together seamlessly.
As a result, less gasoline is burnt, resulting in saving fuel and keeping the car’s cost as low as possible.
A plug-in hybrid expands on the traditional hybrid concept by incorporating a much larger battery pack that, like an electric car's, must be fully recharged using an external power source - for example from your home, office, or public charging station.
This big energy storage capacity is analogous to a larger petrol tank: it allows for longer periods of all-electric driving while also lowering fuel use.
So, having these in mind, let’s go through some of the best hybrid cars in Cyprus available at Pilakoutas Group.
1. BMW 225XE Plug-In Hybrid
The BMW 225xe is the fastest and best-handling MPV on the market, and it might also be the most cost-effective.

The system itself runs without a hitch. It's pleasant to drive, and it can travel up to 28 miles in silent EV mode.
