We cover all aspects of Hybrid vehicle servicing and repair offering a fast and reliable service at unbeatable value.
Hybrid vehicles need servicing at the same intervals as any car. Brakes, windscreen wiper replacement along with brake fluid changes will all still be needed. Low tyre pressures can be unsafe and they’ll reduce your range.
Keeping your Hybrid vehicle well maintained by regular servicing will help reduce the overall running cost and help prevent mechanical breakdown.
Our professionals know how to handle a wide range of car services. Whether you drive a passenger car or 4X4 or SUV, our mechanics strive to ensure that your vehicle will be performing at its best.
Our team of technicians have undergone full training to ensure that they are fully qualified to carry out servicing and repair work on hybrid vehicles.

What is a mild hybrid
Mild Hybrid cars have a small electrical system made up of a motor and a battery pack, which is charged by the internal combustion engine during normal driving.
The motor provides a boost to the powertrain, but it is not capable of moving the vehicle significantly on its own.
What is a full hybrid
Full Hybrids have more powerful electric motors. These are capable of moving the vehicle up to a certain speed or until the battery is discharged.
The battery that supplies energy to the motor is larger than that of a mild hybrid. It provides a significant electric-only range, making it ideal for urban driving. The battery is recharged by the engine when it operates, and in some systems can also be recharged by energy recovery systems such as regenerative braking.
What is a plug in hybrid
Plug-in Hybrids are similar to full Hybrids, with a powerful electric motor or multiple motors, but also have a large battery that can be charged without using the engine.
The motors are capable of moving the vehicle on their own up to a certain speed or until the batteries are discharged. The batteries that supply energy to the motor provide a significant electric-only range, making a plug-in hybrid ideal for urban driving.
Re-charging the battery by plugging into domestic or commercial electricity supplies delivers additional range without consuming fuel, further improving fuel economy.
