Plug-in hybrid cars on sale UK 2019

Delivering all the benefits of electric driving (lower emissions, reduced fuel costs, quiet, smooth driving experience) without the issues of 'range anxiety', buying a plug-in hybrid is a good option for many drivers unable to use a pure battery electric vehicle. Several of the mainstream car makers are now offering high-quality plug-in hybrid models, with others likely to follow suit in the next two years.

One indicator that the EV market (which includes PHEVs) is gaining momentum is the number of plug-in hybrid models available in the UK. While only 9 EVs were available from major manufacturers in 2011, this has changed significantly to include a range of PHEV models from the VW Golf GTE to Porsche's luxury Panamera saloon, with the likes of Volvo, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Toyota and BMW also joining the PHEV market.

Plug-in hybrid vehicles offer many benefits over conventionally-fuelled vehicles: lower running costs with zero or reduced fuel, tax and congestion charges; an emission-free driving option; reducing impact on climate change and air quality; and a high tech, smooth and quiet driving experience.

To get the most out of owning a PHEV it is recommended that you consider your daily driving routine, the charging capability of the vehicle and whether you are able to charge from home. See our plug-in hybrid buying guide for more information.
