Should I buy a hybrid or electric car?

I have a 2018 Yaris Hybrid. It is a second car but covers 15,000 miles a year commuting with 32 miles a day on the motorway. Very cheap to run, averages 60mpg in winter and around 65mpg during the summer. I was looking at changing to the new one but at £23,000 is there a better alternative or even an electric car that’s cheap to run?

The new Yaris starts from £20,210 and it's the car I would choose, it gets exceptional fuel economy and is very well equipped for the money – it comes as standard with autonomous driving aids that are expensive options in rivals.

Looks great on the outside and isn't too shabby on the inside either. Hybrid engine is cheap to run and relaxing. Autonomous aids make long drives painless.
