Think electric cars and hybrids are only for new car buyers? Think again. Now that these cleaner, greener technologies have been around for a few years, they’re filtering down nicely into the used market, meaning there’s now a plug-in car out there to spark (groan - editor) everyone's imagination.

And you don’t have to put up with driving around in something weedy and deeply abhorrent, either. Many of these used electric cars and hybrids are now genuinely desirable, with useable electric ranges, comfortable rides and electrifying (stop with the rubbish electric car puns - ed) performance.
