Plug-in Hybrid Reviews

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV with Michelin CrossClimate all-season tyres

Thinking of buying a plug-in hybrid? Before you buy, read our reviews of all plug-in hybrids on sale in the UK.

To help car buyers make the transition from fossil fuel-powered cars to electric cars, many manufacturers now offer plug-in hybrids. All plug-in hybrids on sale in the UK at this time have petrol engines – apart from the forthcoming Mercedes Benz E-Class Diesel plug-in hybrid. Petrol plug-in hybrids are cleaner in terms of emissions that impact on local air quality, but a diesel plug-in hybrid promises better fuel economy on longer journeys.

Many company car buyers will be attracted to petrol plug-in hybrids because of low Benefit in Kind (BIK) rates. However if an SUV with a petrol plug-in hybrid powertrain is bought or leased, and if this is used up and down the nation’s motorways, there will be disappointment with real-life fuel economy. Plug-in hybrids are designed to be used primarily on electric power, so less than 30 miles between charges in most cases, with occasional longer journeys.

In the meantime, before you buy a plug-in vehicle, check out our reviews. Green Car Guide specialises in independent reviews of green cars, with a focus on whether a car is good to drive, and whether it’s efficient in real-life driving.
