Volvo XC60 T8 TwinEngine review

Volvo's electrification of each of its models continues with the XC60 T8 Twin Engine - the plug-in hybrid version of its latest mid-sized SUV. With a combination of power and economy, the XC80 T8 looks to offer the best of both worlds. NGC puts Volvo's newest...

Mini Countryman Cooper S E All4 review

BMW has a very strong line-up of plug-in cars, covering many bases already with more in the pipeline. However, until recently there was no plug-in Mini offering - an omission corrected in the shape of the Countryman Cooper S E All4. NGC took the new Mini...

Smart fortwo coupe ed review

Smart might not have the largest range around, but it should still be applauded for offering an electrified version of each of its three models. Alongside conventional petrol models, Smart provides a pure-EV option of its fortwo coupe, fortwo cabrio, and...

Hyundai Ioniq Electric review

Hyundai's new Ioniq is the first model to be offered in a choice of three electrified powertrains - hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full electric. Each has a different rival in its sights, with the Ioniq Electric tested here aimed squarely at the Nissan Leaf....

Mercedes Benz E 350e review

Nissan Micra 0.9 IG-T review

There are few cars on the market that have had such a turn around from one generation to the next as the new Nissan Micra. The previous model was rather forgettable in many respects - with design, desirability, and driving experience all below a number of...

Mercedes E 220d Estate review

Large executive estate cars can be one of the only models you ever need buy. Offering high levels of comfort, performance, equipment, and practicality, an exec estate just about has it all. It's with high expectations then that we test the Mercedes Benz...

Volvo V90 Cross Country D4 review

Volvo's V90 is a very accomplished estate; stylish, spacious, and comfortable to drive, with the added bonus of being available as a plug-in hybrid model. The Swedish firm's Cross Country treatment should suit the V90 well then, with raised ride height and...

Toyota Prius Plug-In review

Next Green Car was lucky enough to test the Prius Plug-In on its European launch earlier this year, and it left us impressed. A spin up the Catalan coast and back over a couple of days of shared driving can only tell you so much though, so we've now got...
