Q What is the range of a hybrid car?


The same factors — exact model, driving behaviours, battery size — that influence the range of an electric car will have a similar effect on a hybrid car.

But, because a hybrid car also has an engine as well as an electric motor and battery, the electric-only driving range will always be significantly shorter than that of an EV. With a hybrid car you can never ‘run out’ as the engine is there to support (assuming you don’t run out of fuel too of course).

Still, in hybrid cars, the battery range is usually more than enough to power the vehicle on shorter journeys. The BMW X5 has an all-electric range of up to 67 miles; the Range Rover Velar electric hybrid up to 40 miles.
