Video: BMW 330e plug-in hybrid EV review

Watch our video review of the BMW 330e plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Could this be your next company car? The BMW 330e offers an interesting tax-saving proposition for the company car buyer, with official fuel economy figure of almost 150mpg, and the ability to run purely on electric power for up to 20 miles, it qualifies for the £2500 government grant. The theory of the plug-in hybrid is that one car can give you enough battery power to cover your daily commute, while a convenient petrol engine can be relied on for additional weekend travel, or occasional longer journeys. The BMW 330e does just that, with a total combined range from a full tank and full charge of around 370 miles. Tested: 2,000cc turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor, eight-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive On the Road Price: £33,935 (lease from £394+VAT a…

The Hyundai IONIQ is the first car in the world to offer separate hybrid, full electric and plug in hybrid powertrains within one body type.

It’s a great looking mid-sized five door hatchback which offers practicality for a family vehicle. With autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and reversing collision avoidance as standard, the Ioniq has achieved 5-stars on the ANCAP safety rating.
