What's a good hybrid or electric small SUV?

I'm looking for an automatic SUV with a very high seating position. I am a learner driver and prefer something small. I'm also leaning more towards electric and hybrid?

A Hyundai Kona would be a good option if you want to go down the electric or hybrid route. It's available as an excellent electric car with a long range, although demand is currently exceeding supply. Hyundai's just announced a hybrid version of the same car which is due to go on sale in September: www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/new-cars/2019-08/hyundai.../. Also look at the Toyota C-HR hybrid.
