Toyota has had the ‘green car’ market pretty much sewn up with its Prius – the world’s best-selling hybrid car. But a little competition is a good thing, so it’s great to see the Koreans elbowing themselves into this segment with the Hyundai Ioniq.

It is sold with three states of electrification: a hybrid model with a petrol engine combined with an electric motor, a plug-in hybrid – that’s basically the same as the hybrid but with a bigger battery for more range that you can charge externally – and a pure electric vehicle (EV).

What they all have in common is low or even zero CO2 emissions, which means cheap company car tax.
