Are there any seven-seater hybrids to replace our diesel car with?

We have a 2010 Citroen C4 Grand Picasso. It's the family wagon that takes us on holiday trips and ferries the kids,dog and parents around with no issues. It's "ours" this summer and I'm concerned that with the growing concerns around diesels now is the time to replace it. Is there a decent seven-seater hybrid available? The reviews of the Prius+don't inspire me that it's a good buy. I'd prefer a used car that we can keep for a while.
You can get the 1.2 THP 130 engine in the C4 Picasso and it works well, even with the EAT6 torque converter auto. Maybe not so well in the seven-seater Grand Picasso. Don't know of any UK market hybrid seven-seat MPVs apart from the Prius+. In the far East they have the Alphard, Estima, etc with hybrid drivetrains.
