Whether it is for Manchester city-centre shopping and commuting or a family car as happy on the M60 as Deansgate, OMC Motorgroup has a range of electric cars for sale that are suitable for every type of driver in Manchester.
Our range of electric cars cater to all budgets and all circumstances, there are options for people who only ever do short trips into the city centre, others that might be more suited to business users who spend much of the time on motorways. Of course, many of us require a car that is an all-rounder, as happy popping into town as it is lugging half your worldly possessions up the M6 for a family holiday.
Electric cars are an increasingly popular choice for families that want a car that is efficient, great to drive and also leads to long-term savings.
At OMC Motorgroup, we specialise in two superb makes - Ford and Kia - both offer excellent electric and hybrid options. These cars are a new addition to our range - as the north west’s longest serving main Ford dealers (with links to Ford stretching back more than a century) we have seen huge change since a time when you could only buy a Model T…
Ford’s electric cars fall into four categories - we explain each below and how they differ. Kia have electric versions of the Niro, you might have seen the advert featuring a certain Robert De Niro.
We have huge knowledge of the range but also appreciate that you might not be an expert on electric cars for sale and the nuanced differences between each model and option. Let us help you by offering advice, suggesting models that might be suited to your needs, and arranging test drives.
Test drives of electric cars are an important step - it is easy for us to talk of the superb driving experience, it’s better you get to experience this for yourself.
We have dealerships in Oldham, Rochdale and Accrington - full contact details here.
Ford’s range truly has something for everyone and, as approved Ford dealers with expert knowledge, we are perfectly placed to help you find the right model.
For many, the plug-in hybrid and hybrid options mentioned below will be a superb choice.
The range consists of:
Mild Hybrid Vehicles (MHEV).
Mild hybrid vehicles have an internal combustion engine that gets assistance from an electric motor.
At low speeds, the engine can switch off and then restart seamlessly, for anyone who tends to have trips with a lot of stops and starts this can be ideal. The school run, heading into town, commuting…
Regenerative braking recharges the battery and so there is no need to connect to an external power source.
The mild hybrid Fords still make significant use of the standard combustion engine and, for many, are a first foray into the world of electric vehicles.
Hybrid Vehicles (HEV)
These vehicles have a larger battery and more powerful motor than the MHEV options.
Parts of journeys can be driven purely on electric motor and so overall driving range and efficiency is enhanced.
The new Ford Mondeo is an example of this hybrid approach. Taking this form of vehicle for a test drive is a superb option to get a real sense for the seamless switch between standard and electric engines.
Plug-in hybrid Vehicles (PHEV)
The plug-in hybrid range can be charged from an external power source - there are now many. Finding these external sources is now straightforward because of recent growth in demand for electric vehicles.
A map of Manchester’s charging points is available on the Zap Map site.
Many families are turning to PHEV options as the full hybrid functionality and the large battery means they are capable of zero emissions while driving.
The cars can switch to hybrid mode to help conserve battery life or pure petrol or diesel driving for lengthier journeys.
The all-new Kuga range includes plug in hybrid options.
All Electric Vehicles (BEV)
All electric vehicles use zero fuel, produce no emissions and are truly the cars of the future.
They can also be an affordable option, especially when government purchase initiatives are factored in (plus reduced road tax and no penalties in low emission zones).
Kia’s Electric Cars for Sale
Kia offers the all new Kia e-Niro, a name that no doubt instantly appealed to the aforementioned Robert De Niro (perhaps he needed the money from an advertising campaign…)
And, if you will excuse a tenuous link, while De Niro is known for his range, so too is the e-Niro. Kia’s flagship electric car is capable of 282 miles on a single charge, this through a 64 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack.
As with all Kias, there are innovative features too - smart cruise control, forward collision avoidance assistance and this all backed up by Kia’s 7-year / 100,000 mile warranties.
On this site, we have details of all four types of vehicles and also videos that explain how they work and define the key concepts such as regenerative braking.
Within each of the four categories, a number of different models are available, for instance both the Mondeo and Kuga are among Fords available as Hybrid vehicles.
Please take the time to browse the ranges and see full details. It is also possible to book a test drive, request further information and arrange a finance example.
We also have regular special offers, these through a relationship with Ford that stretches back more than a century. Deals often include 0% APR offers - please head to our special offers section.
Please also take the time to browse impartial reviews of our services.

A major city in the north west of England, Manchester has a population of some 534,982, which rises to 3 million when the whole of Greater Manchester is considered.
Manchester exists in the record books from Roman times with the fort of Mamucium which was established in around AD 79.
However, it was centuries later, with the industrial revolution that Manchester became a globally important city (city statues actually achieved in 1853).
The Manchester Ship Canal directly linked Manchester to the Irish Sea, and the rest, as they say, is history - Manchester becoming the world’s first industrialised city as the region became a leading global industrial centre.
As with all cities, industries and focus changes over time and Manchester is now a leading city in other fields, including culture, sport and also engineering.
The city is famous for its two football clubs - Manchester United and City, both multiple winners of the Premier League. Lancashire Cricket also play at Old Trafford in Manchester, while the city boasts cycling and swimming facilities the envy of any other city in the UK.
Famous Mancunians include L.S Lowry, Liam and Noel Gallagher, David Lloyd-George, Morrissey, Mike Atherton and many, many more.
