Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

I've shown photographs previously of cars using the Greater Manchester Electric Vehicle scheme charging point at Salford Quays. There's two charging points there and on rare occasions I've seen a vehicle using one, but recently for the first time I walked past when there were two cars using the facility at the same time.
This is the all-electric Nissan Leaf, introduced in 2010 which uses either a 24 kWh or 30 kWh battery  which give a range of 84 or 107 miles respectively.

This car is the hybrid Volkswagen Golf GTE which has a 1.4 litre petrol engine and a 75 kW electric motor. The car was introduced in 2014 and in all-electric mode has a range of 31 miles.
