Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

If you want SUV looks and a smattering of off-road ability with your VED-free motor, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV could prove ideal. It isn’t cheap mind, but it does claim some impressive economy figures and low emissions – just 44g/km CO2 - which makes for a great company car and one that’s exempt from the London Congestion Charge.

The plug-in hybrid system allows it to cover up to 32 miles on electric power alone yet it still offers space and practicality for the family motorist with a useful 463-litre boot and a roomy, if only averaged trimmed, cabin.

It seems that car makers are determined to make electric cars as worthy and dull as possible. With the exception of the eye-wateringly expensive Tesla all the above cars look as dull as dishwater. Where are the coupes and convertibles? With their low range and high prices electric cars are already unappealing, looking at them is just depressing.

No, just something at least mildly interesting and, dare I say it, fun.

I can't believe that a Tesla is more popular than a Toyota Auris Hybrid. Who compiles these lists?

Fancy selling a car that you cannot refuel? Are there mad motorists out there? I suspect so looking at this list of over priced tinware.
So what is the real mpg? These do not make economic sense to a person paying from their own pocket.High milers will buy diesel and average milers will buy petrol for cheap maintenance. Taxis will buy up every second hand Prius as they do now.

What about all us peasants who have a house with on road parking only. Can I run an extension lead across the pavement to charge a car overnight? Oh no, someone has fallen over the cable and is sueing me!

London boroughs are now installing charging points in electric lamp posts along the street. I expect the rest of the country won’t be far behind.
