What's the best plug-in hybrid SUV for £35,000?

I want to buy a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV). I have a budget of £35,000.

I have a dilemma, I have supported Land Rover since the early eighties and would like to carry on supporting UK manufacturing. I would like to move from my diesel Freelander to a more environmentally friendly SUV, however, I only cover 4000 miles a year.

I need load-carrying capacity and all-wheel drive, the Freelander served me adequately. I am considering a second-hand plug-in hybrid and have been looking across Land Rover, Toyota and BMW but they are either not available or will no way meet my £35000 budget. Any ideas?

PHEVs command a premium - we'd recommend a more conventional 'self-charging' hybrid such as a Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4. Both will be very dependable, cheap-to-run SUVs with impressive versatility.
