PRICE: £29,195 Think hybrid and chances are you’ll think of a Prius.
It’s the green car that took low-emission motoring into the mainstream, thanks to a decent electric range and a fairly affordable price tag.
The latest model was introduced last year and while the wacky styling might still divide opinion, there’s no denying its green credentials. The plug-in version boasts CO2 emissions of just 22g/km and a 39-mile electric range.
That’s more than enough to ensure most motorists won’t ever have to call on the car’s petrol engine back-up.
