TOY­OTA CH-R

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: £23,685* Toy­ota has made a name for it­self in the hy­brid world, thanks to the Prius, and now it has an­other of­fer­ing in its range, the CH-R.

Un­like its es­tab­lished sib­ling, though, the CH-R doesn’t have a plug-in op­tion yet, so the par­al­lel hy­brid uses en­ergy har­vest­ing to charge the bat­tery, which is only good for less than a mile of elec­tric-only range.

How­ever, the boost the cells give does im­prove econ­omy and brings emis­sions down to 86g/km.

What’s more, its funky SUV style will be to more peo­ple’s tastes than the love-or-hate Prius.
