What alternatives should I consider to a used Toyota Prius hatchback?
The Hyundai Ioniq is available as a regular hybrid, a plug-in hybrid or a fully electric car. It’s one of our favourite hybrids, being more practical, better equipped and smarter inside than the Prius. It’s good to drive and its running costs should be low.
The BMW i3 looks like nothing else on the roads. It’s a premium product, too, with strong, smooth performance, an upmarket interior, a good electric range (which can be even better if you shop for range-extender variants) and a superb infotainment system. It's expensive, but worth a look.
