Best plug-in hybrid on the market?

I have a budget of €30-35k; what is the best plug in hybrid automobile available in the market now?

Hi Lee,

It depends on what you want. I reckon that the best new plugin hybrid on the market right now might be the Kia Niro Plugin, which has very good electric only range, and yet manages to do over 60mpg on long motorway runs. An excellent automobile. The new Prius Plugin is also very good,  but only recently launched so will be beyond your budget unless you buy nearly-new.

If you fancy something a bit classier, the BMW 330e is a really good choice, but bear in mind it’s not as economical as the Kia or Toyota on longer journeys. Here are our reviews for you to read:

Second-hand plugins are going to be thin on the ground, because they really haven’t been around in big numbers for very long. If you can track them down, the best ones are probably the two Volkswagens — Golf GTE and Passat GTE — but bear in mind that they’ll be thirstier than the current Prius and Niro plugins.

Thanks Neil.

Really great info. If you were going for a second-hand plug-in hybrid, what options would you go for? I think the Plug-in Niro and Prius are relatively new?
