AUDI A3 E-TRON
PRICE: £33,430 Like the Golf GTE, the Audi e-tron flies under the radar by looking just like any other car in the A3 range.
But put the logo on its bonnet to one side and behind it you’ll find a plug which can top up the battery to allow owners to travel 29 miles on electric only.
Keep it well-charged and the e-tron is one of the most seamless hybrids, providing smooth, quiet motoring and low running costs. However, it is let down by the 1.4-litre petrol engine, which is thirsty when the battery is low and it’s left to pick up the burden.
