Hybrid Battery Replacement
Hybrid cars continue to take the world by storm, with dual gas and electric vehicles continuing to move from the fringes to the mainstream. Along with their standard internal combustion engine, hybrid vehicles also have an electric motor and hybrid battery. These advanced batteries are clean, affordable, and they are responsible for the performance and fuel efficiency of your vehicle.
While the hybrid battery technology used in modern vehicles has improved considerably over recent years, there will come a time when you need to have your hybrid battery serviced or replaced. We specialize in hybrid battery replacement in Woodinville, Redmond, Kirkland and the surrounding area.
We have access to leading nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and lithium ion (Li-on) battery technology. Whether you have a standard hybrid or a plug-in model, the state of your battery has a significant effect on the quality of your ride. If you want the best hybrid battery price in the Woodinville area, please visit our office today.
Types of electric vehicles
There are three general classifications of electric cars: battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) powered only by electricity, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) that can be recharged from an outlet, and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) that generate electricity through regenerative braking. BEVs run solely on electricity and are not hybrids. While neither of the other two vehicle types needs to be plugged into an electric source, with PHEVs, you have the option to do so. Hybrid battery replacement depends on the technology used.
Plug-in hybrid vehicle battery replacement
Plug-in hybrids are increasing their market share all the time, with popular models including the Chevrolet Volt and Hyundai Ioniq. These vehicles have more powerful batteries than conventional cars and can be recharged using a standard gas station or household current. High-performing batteries allow these vehicles to function much like fully electric cars, with a gasoline-powered motor also available as a reliable generator once the battery has been depleted. We offer hybrid battery repair and replacement for a range of plug-in hybrid cars.
Standard hybrid vehicle battery replacement
While HEVs that can't be recharged from an outlet aren't always considered to be electric vehicles, they also have a unique charging system that involves electric motor usage along with an internal combustion engine. These vehicles typically generate power through the process of regenerative braking, with a standard engine used and batteries available to help offset fuel costs and increase gas mileage. Popular standard hybrids include the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight.
We can replace the battery on your hybrid vehicle to improve your driving performance and help you save money on fuel. We are located in Woodinville and offer the best hybrid battery price in the area. Call us or make an appointment today!
