7. THERE’S NO NEED TO CHARGE UP
Honda’s hybrids are not plug-ins, instead, they are self-charging. The car carries its own generator, which is driven by the petrol engine or by the motion of the car as it slows down. The electricity generated can be used by the electric motor straight away, or it can be stored in a battery for later use. There’s no need to unravel a cable and plug it into a socket – great if you don’t have off-street parking, or you park somewhere with no source of electrical power.
