If the all-electric e-Golf isn’t your cup of tea, this great Golf GTE PHEV hybrid may be more to your taste. It’s swings and roundabouts, as if you’re buying from new, the Government grant is far lower on a hybrid like this (£2500 instead of £4500 on the pure electric version) and if you’re looking for mainly all-electric driving, range on the GTE is practically speaking around 20 miles between charges, whereas the electric version will cover around 120 miles between top-ups. On the other hand, this vehicle’s official CO2 output of just 38g/km from its 1.4-litre petrol engine (assisted by the electric motor) makes it a very economical company car to drive.
