Is a hybrid suitable for a 100 mile daily commute?

I do 108 miles per day to get to work with a 1.2-litre petrol car and I am thinking of swapping for something more economical? Is diesel or Hybrid the best economical option?

Asked on by

A diesel would be the most economical option, as long as you regularly drive at motorway speeds for prolonged periods to clear the diesel particulate filter.
