Every time you press on the brakes that heat is lost, not so for the PHEV as it can recover the long motorway exit slip braking for a few hundred meters of zero emission town driving.
I don’t buy the ‘green’ aspect to a PHEV at all.. but as a proposition, it seems a good’un.
Don't get me started on stop-start , now that is a complete waste of time.
I don't think bank robbers have yet seen the benefits of a silent getaway vehicle
