Is the Mercedes A250e a good plug-in hybrid?

I'm thinking of buying a Mercedes-Benz A250e. Is there something you would recommend which is better? The 44 electric miles is the attraction.

As plug-in hybrids go, the Mercedes A250e is an excellent choice. If you're happy a PHEV is the right choice for you (i.e. you can charge at home and cover a lot of short journeys), we'd recommend it. If you're keen to try an alternative, look at the Volkswagen Golf GTE.
