3. Honda CR-V Hybrid AWD

Honda's latest CR-V offers excellent space for both passengers and luggage, and the hybrid version – which combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with an electric motor – provides plenty of poke. It's also the most efficient and refined CR-V you can buy, and this adds to its appeal as a family car.

2020 Kia Niro PHEV front 3/4

Just like the Hyundai Ioniq above, the Kia Niro is available as a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid and as a fully electric car. It's the fully electric e-Niro that we prefer, but this plug-in hybrid version is a great choice if you still want the reassurance of petrol power for longer trips. It's capable of travelling for up to 30 miles without using a drop of fuel, and the 1.6-litre petrol engine is a strong performer when your battery is depleted. We also like that every Niro is well equipped, plus you have the reassurance of Kia's seven-year warranty should anything go wrong.

BMW X5 2020 RHD front cornering

This plug-in hybrid version of the luxurious BMW X5 matches a 3.0-litre petrol engine with a big battery and a powerful electric motor. The result is one of the longest official electric-only ranges for any plug-in hybrid, at up to 60 miles. And, while we managed just shy of 33 miles of electric power during mixed driving, that lower figure is still impressive, especially when you consider that this X5 is just as comfortable and luxurious as other models in the range.
