Toyota Proace Electric first drive

There have been a large number of new electric vehicles launched in the last year or so, with many manufacturers new to the market. Toyota is now one of them. Having previously offered a wide selection of hybrid models and a couple of PHEVs, the Japanese...

Jeep Renegade 4xe review

An electrified Jeep? Might sound odd, but the brand is now part of the Stellantis group, which is going through a serious electrification effort. The Renegade 4xe PHEV is part of these changes - though the plug-in Jeep was planned before leadership changes...

Toyota Mirai first drive

When is an electric car not a pure-EV? When it’s an FCEV - hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle. There aren’t many around (in fact there’s one rival in production), but the Toyota Mirai manages to break new ground as the first FCEV to make it to second-generation...

Fiat 500 first drive

There are few truly iconic models in the automotive industry, but it’s safe to say that the Fiat 500 is one of them. Not only did the original 1957 Cinquecento play a big part in mobilising Italy, it also spawned the modernised and hugely popular model,...

Toyota’s Prius is widely regarded as an efficient car, but the Prius Plug-In - though less famous - is even more so. The plug-in hybrid has a much longer electric-only range than the conventional hybrid, and updates to the Prius Plug-In have made the current...

Mercedes Benz EQC review

As the first model from Mercedes Benz’s EQ electric sub-brand, there’s a lot riding on the EQC as it sets the tone for a fleet of EVs due in the future. The all-electric SUV boasts a stylish exterior, spacious interior, and good range, but what’s it...

Seat Leon e-Hybrid FR review

The first plug-in hybrid from Seat comes in the shape of its latest Leon hatchback. The model shares much of its underpinnings and powertrain with the VW Golf GTE, but with Seat’s stamp on things. The Leon has proven a popular and characterful family car...

Kia Sorento PHEV first drive

There’s been plenty changing at Kia, and electrification is at the heart of this shift for the Korean manufacturer. A new logo will arrive on the bonnet of a car - branding elsewhere has already changed - with the company’s first dedicated, pure-electric...
