What we are looking for

  • Not so long ago, hybrids were the preserve of Hollywood stars, environmentally conscious ‘early adopters’ and the odd minicab driver looking to save a bit of money on fuel.
  • But with the fallout of the Volkswagen emissions cheating scandal still hanging over the industry, and with fully electric vehicles yet to sell in big numbers, hybrids are now serious alternatives to petrol and diesel cars. Lower CO2 figures, impressive fuel economy and exemption from London’s congestion charge are just a few perks they can offer.
  • With that in mind, we are looking for hybrid cars that are as practical, refined and good to drive as their conventionally powered equivalents.
