What Car? says...
The Volkswagen Passat GTE would appear to let you have your cake and eat it. It's very big, no matter whether you choose it as a saloon or an estate, and can operate as an electric car for far enough to cover many people’s daily commutes. Yet unlike a pure electric car, it won't conk out when the battery is flat; there's a petrol engine under the bonnet that will keep you going as long as there's fuel in the tank.
Based on the regular Volkswagen Passat, the GTE is a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and while it doesn't quite offer the tax incentives of a fully electric model, like the Tesla Model 3 or Kia e-Niro, it's still massively cheaper to run as a company car than any equivalent pure petrol or diesel model. And, as long as you charge its battery regularly, which can be done at home or at a public charging point, you could save plenty on fuel, too.
