I drive 60 miles a week - is electric or hybrid best for my next car?

I want to replace my current car and am uncertain whether to go hybrid or electric? I probably drive only 60 miles a week urban driving. I am looking for a small to medium size car. As this is a second car I am not necessarily looking at top of the range and certainly not in excess of £25000 new. I am prepared to look at several manufacturers. What are your views?

I think your usage and the fact you have a garage qualifies you for an electric car and best of the bunch for £25,000 seems to be the new Nissan Leaf: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/nissan/nissan-leaf.../

I'm looking for a new company car and l'm interested in hybrid vehicles due to the lower BiK rates in comparison with diesels. I will be doing regular 100-mile journeys, so need to factor in real world...
In the main, I only drive twice a day for 1.3 miles each way. Should I keep the Lexus IS 2.5 V6 petrol or swap to a small petrol car, or even a hybrid like the Toyota Yaris?
