en:Fleet & Company Cars:SEAT Business:e-HYBRID Vehicles:How to get the most out of your e-HYBRID GB/EN


If you’re thinking of making the switch from petrol to e-HYBRIDs (PHEVs), here are a few hints and tips to ensure you get the most out of it.

Charging your e-HYBRID regularly, either at home or work, allows you to complete more journeys on electric power.  Find out more.

If you purchase a Leon or Leon Estate e-HYBRID and switch to a dual fuel home energy supply from our partner Octopus Energy, you'll be eligible for a £90 saving on your energy bill. If you're already an Octopus Energy customer, you can save too^   Sign up to Octopus Go, a 100% renewable smart tariff, you'll find it’s perfect for charging your new SEAT e-HYBRID at home. Offering 12p/kWh electricity between 0.30am-4:30am every night, you can charge your e-HYBRID while you sleep and keep your fuel costs down to as little as 3p per mile*. For more information, visit our offer page

With regenerative braking, the Leon e-HYBRID can recharge the battery while you're on the move. Braking moderately helps to charge the battery, so you could use less petrol and produce lower emissions.

Use the pre-heating and pre-cooling functions whilst charging. This means that you can maximise the range by not having to use them as much when you're on the move.  This can ensure that your e-HYBRID will be as ready for the working day as you are.

Typically cars that weigh less travel further and may use less fuel. Pack smart and light to see if you can maximise your charge.

^Customers who joined Octopus directly can still benefit from this great offer. However, if you joined via the Refer a Friend scheme or through one of their partners, and have already received a joining reward, unfortunately, you're not eligible for a free miles reward. If you're a gas and electricity customer, and haven't received a joining reward previously, you'll receive a £90 credit. If you're only with Octopus for one fuel type, you'll receive £45 credit. Send an email at existingevoffer@octoenergy.com to take advantage of the offer.


*Calculation based on charging your SEAT e-HYBRID overnight during the low rate window. Exact amount will vary depending on the specific miles/kwh performance. For the SEAT Leon FR 1.4 e-HYBRID DSG-auto 204PS, at Octopus’ Go tariff off-peak rate (7.5 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to up to 3,000 miles when the vehicle is driven purely on electric power. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 13 kWh and an electric driving range of 36 miles giving an efficiency average of 0.36 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving conditions and vehicle configuration. If the vehicle is not charged during the off-peak window £90 credit is equivalent to approximately 810 miles of pure electric driving based on the peak electricity price of 30.73p/kWh.
