How did we calculate these scores?

To calculate the Finder scores, we take published review scores from car testers and add them together, before determining the mean average. For example, if a car had four reviews, three at 85%, one at 70%, we'd add the total together, divide it by the number of reviews and that gives us the average score of 81.25%.

Hybrid vehicle frequently asked questions

What are HEV, MHEV and PHEVS?

Feeling confused by BEV, MEV, PHEV and MHEV? These acronyms tell you to what degree a vehicle has been electrified.

BEV, or sometimes EV, is probably the most simple. It stands for Battery Electric Vehicle, a car with a large battery pack that provides 100% of the propulsion to one or more electric motors. They have no Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) – a posh abbreviation for a conventional engine that explodes (in a controlled way) fossil fuels to turn them into mechanical energy.

Next, there are PHEVs or Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles. These vehicles have an engine, very often a modest petrol power plant, but also have a motor and battery set-up for EV-only modes. They have shorter electric ranges, but you can still top them up with fuel at a service station and electric at an EV charger.

HEVs, or hybrid electric vehicles, have an even smaller battery capacity paired with an electric motor and ICE. They are capable of EV-only propulsion, but it won't last long and is generally limited to very low speeds and light throttle applications. Using energy recuperation, during braking, for example, the car will convert otherwise wasted heat back into electric charge to feed into the battery. HEVs might also be branded as "self-charging" meaning that the system recharges the battery under normal driving conditions (using power generated by the internal combustion engine or the motor acting as a generator).

Then we have MHEVs. This term stands for Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle. In these hybrids, the motor only works in tandem with the engine, providing assistance. You might find these cars branded as hybrid assist or boost.


Which engine should I buy?

With so many different fuel types, how do you narrow your choice down?

If you do a lot of town driving, like commuting and shopping, but also need to travel on motorways for long-distance journeys, a PHEV is a great option. Around town, you could run entirely on electric power (depending on the model).

An HEV hybrid vehicle is likely going to be cheaper than a PHEV and everything is handled for you automatically. You don't have to think about charging or do anything other than you'd normally do when driving. An HEV is ideal for all kinds of driving.

An MHEV vehicle will suit pretty much anyone and is available in a wide range of models, from small cars to sports cars. It's a thing that's nice to have and is typically viewed as a positive versus a non-hybrid vehicle.


What does kWh mean?

kWh is short for kilowatt-hours. This unit is used to show the size of the vehicle's electric capacity. The larger the number, the larger the battery pack. You can equate this to the size of the fuel tank in a car with a combustion engine. On a hybrid, that often practically translates to how far you can travel in EV mode before the engine kicks in.


What is range?

It's the distance the hybrid can travel in electric-only mode, measured in kilometres.


How much range do I need?

Did you know the average Australian commute is just 32km per day – or 16km one-way? Many hybrids can travel that no sweat. With an on-board diesel or petrol engine, hybrids have fewer range problems, after all, you can top up at a petrol station like any other conventional vehicle.
