Living with it: Mercedes E 300 de

Subaru Forester hybrid

The all-wheel-drive Subaru Forester e-Boxer hybrid is great off-road and comfortable on-road, but still hard to justify

Peugeot 508 Hybrid
Peugeot 508 Hybrid review

The Peugeot 508 Hybrid is a great-looking large family car that should also be extremely cost-effective for company-car users, but it's expensive for private buyers

Peugeot 3008 Hybrid review

The 3008 is both fast and cheap to run, but it's expensive to buy, feels heavy, and loses some of the non-electrified versions' practicality

Practical, well equipped and decent value for money, the Peugeot e-2008 isn’t the best in its class, but it’s likeable and more than fit for purpose

Kia Niro PHEV

The Volvo XC90 T8 is a plug-in hybrid SUV with decent performance, seven-seat practicality and some 28 miles of electric running

Volvo S60 T8 Twin Engine hybrid review

Excellent company-car running costs count in the Volvo S60 T8's favour, but it's not as sporty to drive as its looks and image suggest
