The UK’s Best Hybrid SUV

SUV’s continue to grow in popularity in the UK and it is easy to see why. There are many SUV options that seem magical in how slim and trim they look on the outside, but inside feel incredibly large and roomy. One thing that makes SUV’s even better is the ever-increasing option of hybrid versions which offer the benefit of saving money on fuel, congestion charges and the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).

The most popular plug-in hybrid, in the UK, is the new BMW X5 xDrive45e. This show-stopping, new edition has gained two extra cylinders compared to the previous model yet incredibly has become more economical and more BIK tax-efficient. No doubt this is due to the improved battery capacity of 24kWh which claims an electric range of 40 miles or more! This has earned it the recognition of being one of the extremely few ‘PHEV’ options that qualify for the UK governments six percent benefit-in-kind tax bracket. If all of that wasn’t amazing enough this vehicle also meets high standards of a smooth and enjoyable ride, with plenty of power and torque.
