We’ve been making (and frequently updating) our Plug in Hybrid SUVs buying guide for a while now. It is a long-awaited and logical step towards the electrification of the fleet, since they allow you to move for quite a few kilometers with the electric motor, powered by batteries that can be plugged into the network, without emissions… and without giving up being able to make a long trip, by have a conventional combustion engine.
This technology comes to market at a time when SUVs dominate to the point that they are cornering sales in many other segments. These bodies have the advantage that they have fairly large trunks, so leaving a space reserved for the batteries does not mean an extreme loss of cargo space. In some cases, the existence of two extra places is penalized.
If an SUV already implies a notable extra cost compared to a saloon with conventional bodywork in the same segment, the fact that it has this propulsion technology raises its price even more. Be careful, you also have to take into account, if you live in a big city, that they have a notable advantage over hybrid cars: If they have more than 40 km of autonomy in electric mode, they have the Zero Label on the label . of emissions, with benefits such as access to city centers in pollution episodes, free parking…
Like any other vehicle with this technology, Plug in Hybrid SUVs also have a considerable increase in weight. That means that on long trips they consume much more than their counterparts (whether they are small SUVs, compact SUVs, large SUVs or premium SUVs) diesel or even with a gasoline engine.
Where its consumption is unbeatable is on short journeys that use its electric motor. Those who make many daily journeys and can move most of the time with electricity have an ally in them. The greater the possibilities of charging them between trips, the smarter it is to bet on one of these vehicles.
The recharging time varies depending on its capacity and the type of connection used. To extend its useful life, it is convenient to use slow charging. In motion, they are also recharged during braking and deceleration processes, like other cars with an electric motor.
Comparison of Plug in Hybrid SUVs in 2022
In the market you can currently find quite a few Plug in Hybrid SUVs. Most of the offer corresponds to premium brands, but there are also some general brand options (which are obviously the most economically accessible and the best sellers).

Little by little, as this technology becomes more affordable, it will reach more brands… And if SUVs continue to be as popular as they have been until now and their sales continue to increase, they will surely be the first to have it.
The Best Plug in Hybrid SUVs in 2022
For now we have grouped them all in this buying guide, although in the future, if the bet continues (something that we predict seeing the trickle of models that do not stop appearing), it is possible that we will divide it.
And it is that, throughout this year, the list that we show below will be expanded with many plug-in hybrid variants of SUV.
Audi Q3 45 TFSIe quattro
The Audi Q3 45 TFSI quattro was added to the Audi Q3 2019 range at the beginning of 2021. It boasts the Zero environmental label that allows its use in areas restricted to low-emission models.
Its propulsion system is the well-known one already used by other models of the Volkswagen Group. It combines a 1.4 TFSI engine with an electric one to achieve a combined total power of 245 hp. It has an S-Tronic dual-clutch automatic gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive.
The electrical part of the Audi Q3 45 TFSIe (which is also offered with the Sportback bodywork) is handled by a lithium-ion battery with a 13 kWh capacity with which it homologates 51 km of electric range. It includes a 3.7 kW on-board charger, with which in just under four hours it could be fully recharged in the appropriate outlet.
With hardly any aesthetic differences, the most notable difference with respect to the variants with a combustion engine is the malatero, which greatly reduces its capacity, going from 510 to 380 liters . It is possible to choose it with a base finish (very well equipped, with LED headlights, alloy wheels, touch screen multimedia system, parking sensors) and complete it with the Advanced line, which adds more refined elements or the sportier S-Line and BlackLine.
Audi Q3 Sportback 45 TFSI Quattro
The Audi Q3 Sportback 2020 was added to the range of the conventional Q3 offering a more sporty cut body. And since it has a Plug in Hybrid SUVs version, the Q3 45 TFSIe Sportback, which achieves the Zero emissions label. It costs around 3,000 euros more than the conventional bodywork.
Its propulsion system is identical to that of many other Group models. Thanks to the combination of a supercharged gasoline engine, the 1.4 TFSI, and an electric one, 245 hp of power is reached. It has quattro all-wheel drive and power is sent through a dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Under the floor of the vehicle there is a 13.0 kWh lithium-ion battery with which it homologates an electric range of 50 kilometers. It does not have the possibility of charging it with direct current, but it does have a 3.7 kW on-board charger, which would recharge it in 3 hours 45 minutes. This battery subtracts space from the trunk, which remains at 380 liters (up to 1,250 liters if the rear seats are folded down), by 530 liters of the conventional variant.
Its price is high, but in its favor it should be noted that it has complete standard equipment, with elements such as LED headlights and dual-zone automatic climate control at no cost. The options to improve it are many. The brand proposes three equipment lines on the base equipment, called Advanced, S-Line and Black Line, which also change the aesthetics of the vehicle.
Audi Q5 TFSI Quattro
The Audi Q5 2021 stands out for incorporating two versions with plug-in hybrid technology into its range. It is available with up to four different finishes: basic, Advanced, S line and Black line, although the most powerful only has the last two.
Both versions combine the 265 hp 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder petrol engine (the one mounted on the Audi Q5 45 TFSI) with an electric one integrated into the seven-speed S tronic gearbox. In the Q5 50 TFSIe it delivers 299 hp of total combined power which, in the case of the 55 TFSIe, reaches 367 hp to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds.
The electric drive is powered by energy stored in a 14.4 kWh capacity battery. With it fully charged, it can travel up to 62 km in 100% electric mode and achieves the ZERO label. In a domestic outlet it is possible to fully charge it in about six hours, a time that is reduced to two and a half hours with a 32-amp outlet. It is possible to carry out fast recharges in alternating current at a power of up to 7.3 kW.
The trunk is reduced from 520 liters of the versions with a combustion engine to 465 liters. There is no difference in space inside, which as usual in the brand, is very well done.
Audi Q5 Sportback TFSI Quattro
The Audi Q5 Sportback is the body with a more dynamic approach that completed the brand’s mid-size SUV range. Like the model from which it starts, it has two versions with a plug-in hybrid engine, which hit the market in early 2021. Of course, they are significantly more expensive than the Q5 alone.
They are the same mechanics as the conventional bodywork. On the one hand, the Q5 Sportback 50 TFSIe, which delivers 299 CV of total power combining a 2.0 TFSI four-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric one integrated into the seven-speed S tronic gearbox. Above is the Q5 Sportback 55 TFSIe that reaches 367 hp .
Both versions share a 14.4 kWh capacity battery. With it fully charged, it can travel up to 62 km in 100% electric mode and achieves the ZERO label. In a domestic outlet it is fully charged in about six hours, a time that is reduced to two and a half hours with a 32-amp outlet. It is possible to carry out fast recharges in alternating current at a power of up to 7.3 kW.
In the Q5 Sportback 50 TFSIe, the commercial offer starts with the Advanced finish, while the most powerful engine is reserved for the S line and Black line finishes, with a sportier cut. There are no variations inside, but there are in the capacity of the trunk, which goes from 510 to 455 liters since the battery is located under the floor.
Audi Q7 TFSIe
The Audi Q7 bets heavily on hybridization with two variants, the Q7 55 TFSIe and the Q7 60 TFSIe. Sales in Spain are initially limited to the most powerful variant, with 456 hp and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. It is achieved by combining a 3.0 V6 TFSI petrol engine and an electric one that give the car good performance: it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.7 seconds and reaching 240 km/h.
The electric motor is powered by energy from a lithium-ion battery with a 17.3 kWh capacity, enough to move up to 42 kilometers in 100% electric mode (provided it does not exceed 135 km/h), which earns it the Zero label from the DGT.
This variant of the Audi Q7 2020 has three driving modes: EV (pure electric), Auto, which combines both engines in the most efficient way, and Hold, which saves energy in the battery for later use. They are added to the Audi drive Select driving mode selector that offers up to seven options that vary the response of the engine, transmission, suspension, direction…
Like other plug-in hybrids of the brand, it comes standard with the S Line finish, which highlights the sportiness with underbody painted in body color, 20-inch wheels, red brake calipers, sports seats upholstered in alcantara, aluminum. Also included at no extra cost is the Audi virtual cockpit digital instrument panel. In addition, there are a good number of extras to increase the technological and security equipment.
Audi Q8 TFSI Quattro
It was in 2021 when the Plug in Hybrid SUVs versions of the Audi Q8 2019 arrived on the market that use technology similar to that used by the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid or Volkswagen Touareg R PHEV.
The first of them, the Audi Q8 55 TFSIe quattro announces 381 hp and 600 Nm, the result of combining a 340 hp 3.0 V6 turbo gasoline engine with a 136 hp electric motor, an automatic gearbox with a torque converter of 8 relations and a total traction system capable of sending up to 85% to the front axle, or up to 70% to the rear axle. With the same scheme is the 60 TFSIe quattro with 462 CV and 700 Nm.
They both have very good performance. The electrical part is powered by the energy stored in lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 17.8 kWh, with which these versions can travel 47 or 45 km in 100% electric mode, which is why it has a Zero label.
The internal charger demits loads of up to 7.4 kW of power. The capacity of the energy regeneration system stands out. The plug-in hybrid Audi Q8 has 7 driving modes, as well as sailing (disconnects the combustion engine to move by inertia). It can also work in conjunction with the browser to optimize consumption based on the route taken (orography, traffic…)
BMW X1 xDrive25e
The BMW X1 xDrive25e is the plug-in hybrid variant of the X1 2019, the compact SUV from the Bavarian firm. It shares a powertrain with the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer or the Mini Countryman powered by this technology. That leaves us with a supercharged 1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol block delivering 92 kW (125 PS) peak power and 220 Nm of torque, sending its power to the front wheels via the 6-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. . The rear axle is powered by an electric motor with 70 kW (95 hp) of power and 165 Nm of torque.
It is, therefore, a fairly powerful and capable all-wheel drive car, since the maximum power of the system reaches 162 kW (220 hp) and a maximum torque of 385 Nm. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and has a top speed of 193 km/h. The most important thing in cars of this nature: it announces up to 57 km of autonomy in electric mode –up to 135 km/h–, for which it benefits from the DGT Zero label.
The electrical system is powered by a 10 kWh capacity lithium-ion battery. In a conventional plug it is fully recharged in 5 hours and in 3.8 80% of the charge is recovered. If you choose to purchase a BMW i Wallbox charging post, the total charge is reduced to 3.2 hours. The charging socket is located behind the cover of the left front fender of the car.
The driver can use the eDrive button on the center console to intervene in the operation of the powertrain and change the car’s temperament and response between various modes or save battery power, as well as the rest of the usual modes.
The new BMW X1 xDrive25e has good standard equipment, with dual-zone climate control or 17-inch alloy wheels. To improve it, the Sport, xLine and M Sport finishes can be chosen, in addition to the huge list of optional equipment that is offered in the combustion models. The cargo space has 450 liters of capacity and if the backrests of the rear seats are folded down, they reach 1,470 liters.
BMW X2 xDrive 25e
The BMW X2 xDrive 25e is the zero-labeled plug-in hybrid version of BMW’s compact SUV with a coupé line and betting on more dynamic behavior, the X2 launched in 2018.
It uses the same technology to propel itself as the Series 2 Active Tourer 225 xe, the MINI Countryman SE or the X1 xDrive 25e. The front wheels are powered by a 125 hp (92 kW) three-cylinder petrol engine with 220 Nm of torque (via a six-speed automatic Steptronic gearbox) and the rear axle is powered by an electric motor that generates 95 hp (70 kW) and delivers 165 Nm of torque through a gearless reduction system. The maximum power of the system is 220 hp (162 kW) and 385 Nm .
Its performance is good, as it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds (one tenth faster than the X1 with identical mechanics) and reaches 195 km/h. Electric power comes from the hand of a lithium-ion battery with a 10 kWh capacity, which allows an electric range of between 55 and 57 km, enough to have the DGT zero label. In 5 hours it is fully charged in a conventional socket (operation reduced to 3.2 with a wallbox). Its trunk is 450 liters (20 less than the combustion variants).
In addition to the usual driving modes, there is the eDrive button on the center console to control the operation of the system. From Auto mode (the two motors interact in an optimized way) to Max (prioritizes electric mode, up to 135 km/h) through Save Battery (maintains the charge level). It also offers good standard equipment, with 17-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control… which can be improved with three equipment packages (Impulse, M Sport and M Sport X), which vary the statics and a large list of optional equipment.
BMW X3 xDrive30e
Under the hood of the X3 xDrive 30e is a 2.0-liter petrol engine with 184 hp that works in unison with an electric 109 hp and a 12 kWh battery located under the second row of seats. Together, the four wheels receive a total of 292 hp and 420 Nm through an eight-speed automatic gearbox – torque converter type. The charging time that BMW cites is “less than six hours” in a domestic plug (2.3 kW) and “about three and a half hours” if it is connected to a Wallbox socket (3.7 kW), and its autonomy of 50 kilometers.
As in other BMW hybrid models, the X3 xDrive30e has various energy management modes selectable via a dedicated button on the center console (MAX eDrive, Auto eDrive and Battery Control). Additionally, it also has the driving modes that you would find in any other version of the X3 (Eco Pro, Comfort and Sport), which are the ones that act on the response of the steering, the gearbox and the suspension, among other elements. . In 100% electric mode, top speed is electronically limited to 135 km/h.
The trunk of this version has 450 liters of capacity , 100 less than that of any other X3. This is motivated by the installation of the high voltage battery and the location of the fuel tank (on the rear axle). By folding down the backrests of the rear seats, which do so in three parts (40:20:40), the volume increases to 1,500 litres. Trims are also the same as the rest of the range: Base , Advantage , xLine , Luxury and M Sport , and the list of optional equipment is just as substantial regardless of trim.
BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance
With the arrival of the fourth generation of the BMW X5, it was also expected that some version with an alternative propulsion system would arrive. It has not been made to be asked and here is the BMW X5 xDrive45e iPerformance, which is the second generation of plug-in hybrid in this model. At an aesthetic level it is distinguished from other X5 thanks to some exterior details and also to a trunk that is reduced to 500 liters (645 liters in combustion).
The reason is that plug-in hybrid propulsion system, which is made up of a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder gasoline engine linked to another electrical mechanics. It is linked to an eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission and xDrive all-wheel drive. They are combined achieving a power of 394 hp and 600 Nm of torque , which allows it to have outstanding performance.
It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds and has a top speed of 235 km/h. On the other hand, its lithium-ion battery allows it to reach an electric range of 80 kilometers , with a maximum speed of 140 km/h on the electric motor. The average approved consumption of this model is 2.1 l/100km and its CO2 emissions have been reduced to 49 g/km.
The equipment is still very prominent as in the rest of the BMW X5. It can be chosen with several lines of equipment and complete its endowment to unsuspected limits thanks to BMW Individual. It also wants to stand out for its driving aids, being able to mount novelties such as the emergency stop assistant and other interesting ones such as the lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection.
Citroën C5 Aircross Hybrid
The C5 Aircross Hybrid is the plug-in hybrid version of the 2018 C5 Aircross. It came to market as part of PSA’s commitment to this technology. This plug-in hybrid SUV shares the hybrid system with the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid and the Opel Grandland X Hybrid, although in the Citroën the power is always delivered to the front wheels. It consists of a 180 hp 1.6 PureTech petrol engine, associated with a 110 hp electric mechanic, which develops a combined power of 225 hp .
Both engines are associated with an eight-speed automatic gearbox e-EAT8 and the energy that comes from the lithium-ion battery with 13.2 kWh capacity. With it you can travel up to 50 km in 100% electric mode, as long as it does not exceed 135 km/h (the combustion engine would come into operation) and less than 30 km/h it generates artificial sound.
To recharge that battery, it can be plugged into a conventional outlet for 7 hours, a time that may make many consider buying a 32A Wallbox charger, which reduces that time to a couple of hours.
Compared to other versions, this C5 Aircross Hybrid is committed to comfort, something that we already saw in our C5 Aircross test. The trunk loses some capacity compared to other versions and ranges between 460 and 600 liters of capacity (moving the seats forward). The brand offers two levels of equipment, Feel and Shine, quite complete from the basic.
Cupra Formentor e-Hybrid
The 2020 CUPRA Formentor hit the market with the 310 hp 2.0 TSI engine, associated with the 7-speed DSG gearbox and 4Drive all-wheel drive (see test) but soon added two plug-in hybrid versions to its range.
Both have a common propulsion system in the Volkswagen Group, which combines a 1.4 TSI with 150 hp and 250 Nm of maximum torque and an electric motor with 115 hp (85 kW) and 330 Nm that, in combination with an electric motor, delivers 204 or 245 hp in the case of the Formentor VZ e-Hybrid. It is mated to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the front wheels.
With the lithium-ion battery of 13 kWh capacity fully charged that gives it a range of up to 55 km (reduced to 50 in the most powerful). The benefits are very good as it announces a 0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds for the 204 hp version and a maximum speed of 205 km/h, which in the case of the VZ eHybrid is 7 seconds and 210 km. /h.
As standard, it has a very complete equipment that includes Full LED headlights, multiple driving aids, three-zone climate control, wireless phone charger, rear parking sensors, heated leather steering wheel with paddles…
DS 7 Crossback E-Tense
Electrification comes to DS and its first plug-in hybrid as an independent brand (before they had the Citroën DS5 Hybrid4) it is their largest SUV. The DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4 joins this booming segment with that striking design that characterizes the brand. If before they used diesel in their hybrids, over time the tone has changed and now they take advantage of a gasoline mechanic.
This is the 1.6 PureTech, which is linked to two electric motors, one located on each axle. With this distribution, it is capable of moving all four wheels and earns the name 4 × 4. The transmission used is the automatic e-EAT8 with a specific set-up for this type of propulsion. The system has a total power of 300 hp and 450 Nm of torque , being the top-of-the-range version of the model.
In this case, a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 13.2 kWh is used, which allows it to reach an electric range of 50 kilometers . A full recharge can be done with a 32-amp Wallbox in just two hours, although a conventional outlet would take eight hours. The DS 7 Crossback E-Tense 4×4 has an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and the maximum speed in electric mode is limited to 135 km/h.
In this SUV you can choose several driving modes, which are Zero Emission, Sport, Hybrid and 4WD . This allows the behavior of the vehicle to be adapted to the situation. In addition, it has some interesting functions such as E-Save to save energy. In this case, the battery does not affect its habitability and that allows it to maintain the 555 liters of capacity in the trunk.
Launched in the spring of 2020, it is offered exclusively with one level of equipment, the ST-Line , which is very complete and largely compensates for the high price of the car. Among the elements that you can find, as standard, we have heated seats, a panoramic sunroof or the SYNC 3 infotainment system with a 10.1-inch touch screen, as well as a wide variety of driving assistance systems.
The most important thing is under the hood. Its powertrain combines a 350 hp 3.0-liter V6 gasoline engine that works together with a 74 kW (100 hp) electric drive. Thus, it has a combined power of 450 hp and 840 Nm of maximum torque. It is associated with a ten-speed automatic gearbox, has all-wheel drive and has very good performance for a vehicle of its size: it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 230 km/h.
The electric motor is powered by the energy stored in a 13.1 kWh lithium-ion battery , which allows the Ford Explorer PHEV to travel up to 40 kilometers in electric mode, which guarantees the 0 label. From the mode selector Driving, the use of motors can be managed, among four profiles: EV Auto (hybrid), EV Now (prioritizes the electric motor), EV Later (maintains the charge level) and EV Recharge (charges with the combustion engine).
Ford Kuga PHEV
The third generation of the Ford Kuga presented as a novelty, in addition to a very different design from the one known until then, this PHEV version, a plug-in hybrid SUV that reached the market before other new propulsion systems, such as the mild-hybrid or hybrid variants. conventional.
Based on the same C2 platform that launched the 2018 Focus, this plug-in hybrid Ford Kuga combines a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder Atkinson cycle gasoline engine with an electric drive to deliver 225 horsepower. It has very low consumption and emissions, which will be feasible if the energy of its 14.4 kWh capacity lithium-ion battery is used, with which it homologates 50 km of 100% electric autonomy. It charges in about 4 hours in a conventional socket.
The model also offers different driving modes to optimize its efficiency, including EV Auto, EV Now, EV Lateer and EV Charge.
The first plug-in hybrid model that the brand sells in Europe can be chosen with three finishes. Part of the Titanium with dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and start, fabric upholstery, 18-inch wheels or the rain sensor, among other elements. Above we find the ST-Line , with a sportier look, specific suspension or the SYNC 3 multimedia system and the ST-Line X , already with partial leather upholstery, Full LED headlights or the B&O sound system.
Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV
Moving it is handled by a system made up of a 180 hp 1.6 TGDI petrol engine and an electric motor, which achieve a total combined power of 265 hp . It is associated with a six-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels through the HTRAC all-wheel drive system (in the first commercial stage it is not sold exclusively with front-wheel drive).
The electrical section is responsible for a lithium-ion battery with a 13.8 kWh capacity, thanks to which it homologates an autonomy in electric mode of more than 50 km.
A section in which it stands out is in the equipment. It can be chosen in the most complete levels of the range, called Maxx , Tecno and Style . The simplest already offers elements such as LED headlights, leather upholstery, 19-inch alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, pre-collision warning, automatic city braking or the BlueLink system with a 10-inch screen, 25 inches, among others. Their prices are interesting, not much more than with the diesel engine (see test).
Hyundai Tucson PHEV
The Hyundai Tucson plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is the most powerful and efficient alternative in the 2021 Tucson range. However, it is not the fastest, since it weighs almost half a ton above the 1.6 T-GDi hybrid engine 230 hp. It is not a vehicle designed to race, but rather to travel through the metropolis and highway sections at a moderate speed without spending a lot of fuel or generating more emissions.
This Hyundai SUV delivers a total power of 265 hp and 350 Nm thanks to the joint work of a 179 hp 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and a 91 hp electric one. The lithium polymer battery has 13.8 kWh, achieving an electric range of 62 kilometers (WLTP). With a maximum charging power of 3.3 kW, the recharge time is three hours and 25 minutes on a direct current (AC) outlet. In terms of performance, it does the 0 to 100 km/h in 8.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 190 km/h.
The distribution of force between both motors between the front and rear wheels is variable and depends on the state of the road surface and the type of driving. Inside, on the center console, there is a dial (Terrain Mode) dial that allows you to choose between different operating modes of the all-wheel drive system . Likewise, the shock absorbers can be adjusted in hardness automatically depending on the traffic conditions or at the driver’s will depending on the chosen driving mode. The trunk cubic 558 liters .
As the logical one, the plug-in hybrid Hyundai Tucson is only available in the highest finishes ( Maxx , Tecno Sky and Style ; the N Line finish is reserved for conventional and micro-hybridized gasoline models). Semi-autonomous driving capabilities include Active Cruise Control in conjunction with Lane Keeping System (accelerates, decelerates and steers based on traffic ahead and lane markings) or Remote Parking Assist via of the key.
Jaguar E-Pace 300e
The Jaguar E-Pace P300e is the plug-in hybrid version of the brand’s SUV, one of the great novelties of the model update in 2021.
The big role falls on the propulsion system. It combines a 200 hp 1.5 three-cylinder petrol engine located at the front with an 80 kW (109 hp) electric motor integrated in the rear axle, for a power of 309 hp .
It has a 15 kWh capacity battery, which gives it an approved autonomy of 55 km. This helps that, in addition to being the most powerful in the range, it is the most efficient (as long as we plug it into the network, it supports fast charges of up to 32 kW, a very good fact). Although the battery is located under the boot floor, it retains the 470-liter capacity of the rest of the range.
It has all the aesthetic and equipment novelties and very few aesthetic differences with respect to combustion models. It can be chosen with the trim levels S, SE and HSE (from lowest to highest endowment), in this case always with the R-Dymanic pack, one of the reasons why it is somewhat more expensive than the Range Rover Evoque P300e, its mechanical and bodywork counterpart within the group.
Jaguar F-Pace 400e
The great novelty of the Jaguar F-Pace 2021 was the incorporation of a plug-in hybrid version. This is the Jaguar F-Pace P400e, which uses the same scheme used in other Group models.
The propulsion system combines a 300 hp 2.0 four-cylinder petrol engine with a 143 hp electric motor that deliver a combined 404 hp of power and 640 Nm of torque through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Its benefits are good, since it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds.
The electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 17.1 kWh, with which it homologates 53 km of electric autonomy. It supports direct current loads of up to 32 kW of power, with which it goes from 0% to 80% charge in 30 minutes. With a 7 kW home wall charger it reaches 80% charge in 1 hour and 40 minutes.
Jeep Compass 4xe
In the past, the Jeep Compass was an unattractive machine, but with the arrival of the second generation in 2017, sandwiched between the Renegade and Cherokee, the package was more elegant and refined than before. Points that it further reinforced with the 2021 update by integrating new safety and technology equipment, as well as a completely renewed interior and two plug-in hybrid models (PHEV) under the name Jeep Compass 4Xe .
These variants differ externally from the internal combustion ones – 130 and 150 hp gasoline and 130 hp diesel – by the “4Xe” badges and an additional charging port (on the driver’s side). The rest remains practically unchanged. The same goes for the interior, which also benefited from the complete renovation of the rest of the range . In this case, we find a dedicated driving mode and specific menus in the instrument panel and infotainment system to display different parameters of the hybrid set.
Under the bodywork we find the same platform that supports the Renegade, which in turn is the same as that of the Fiat 500X. At a mechanical level, the first of the options welcomes in its vain a 1.3-liter gasoline engine and 130 hp that moves the front wheels. On the rear axle there is an electric motor that provides an additional 60 hp and provides all-wheel drive, for a total of 190 hp . The second option uses the same configuration, but with the heat engine delivering 180 hp ( 240 hp overall ). Both are automatic.
For its part, the battery is 11.4 kWh. With a recharging power of 7.4 kW, it takes about two hours to fill up again, while at 2.3 kWh (a domestic socket) it takes about five hours. The approved autonomy (WLTP) is 52 kilometers for either of the two versions. The only differences between one and the other are in their performance, with a 0 to 100 km/h time of 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 183 km/h for the 190 hp Compass 4Xe, and 7.3 seconds and 200 km /h respectively for the 240 CV.
Jeep Renegade 4xe
The Jeep Renegade 4xe is the plug-in hybrid variant of the brand’s smallest SUV, the Renegade. It was the first step towards the electrification of the models of the North American firm.
The powertrain combines a 180 hp 1.3 motor that drives the front wheels with another 60 hp electric motor on the rear axle. The gearbox is a six-speed automatic. The total power of the system is 240 hp and 525 Nm of torque , which makes it the most powerful alternative in the range. A 190 hp variant is planned.
It has a battery with a capacity of 11 kWh , which provides 50 km of autonomy in electric mode (label 0 emissions), if it does not exceed 130 km/h. It can be charged in an hour and a half with a 7.4 kW Wallbox. The hybrid system has three operating modes: Hybrid, Full Electric and E-Save, with specific features such as Sport Mode, Eco coaching and Smart Charging for charging management.
Its sale began with a special edition called First Edition , which could have a more sporty (Urban) or more off-road (Off-Road) approach. Later, this plug-in hybrid SUV expanded the range and could be chosen with the four trim levels: Longitude , Limited , S and Trailhawk , which were offered in the rest of the range’s engines.
Jeep Wrangler 4xe
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler kept intact the aura of one of the most legendary off-roaders in history. Also its off-road qualities, as we saw in our test of the Wrangler Rubicon. That does not mean that this generation did not take the wave of electrification. It came on the heels of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe, the plug-in hybrid version that joined the range in early 2021.
As in the Renegade and Compass with this propulsion system, it is distinguished from the rest of the range by its electric blue details scattered throughout the bodywork and interior. It is only available with the Unlimited long body. Regarding the passenger compartment, it has specific instrumentation and infotainment system menus.
The propulsion system that combines a supercharged four-cylinder 2.0-liter gasoline block with an electric one. It delivers 380 hp of power and 637 Nm of maximum torque, which is sent to the wheels through a torque converter-type eight-speed automatic transmission. The battery has 17 kWh capacity and can travel up to 40 km in electric mode. It can go electric, hybrid or save battery reserve for later use, as we saw in the Renegade 4xe test.
The brand offers three trim levels, called the 4xe , the Sahara 4xe , and the Rubicon 4xe . The first two with standard all-wheel drive, Dana solid axles, a two-speed transfer case, and a limited-slip differential. The third adds the Rock-Trac system or the electronic locking of the front and rear differentials, in addition to being able to disconnect the stabilizer bar to improve off-road dimensions. In addition, the First Edition version existed, during the beginning of its commercialization.
Kia Niro PHEV
The Kia Niro 2019 family is already complete. Although it started a couple of years ago with a hybrid, it is now also in plug-in hybrid format and 100% electric. Precisely the launch of the Kia e-Niro has been the turning point that has caused the entire range to be slightly updated. There will be a few changes, at an aesthetic level it is hardly noticeable in the bumper with the daytime running lights in the air intakes and the redesigned optics both front and rear.
In the passenger compartment of the Kia Niro PHEV some more notable modifications can be noticed. In the center of the dashboard there is a new 10.25-inch touch screen that is much more complete thanks to its connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In the instrumentation, it wins a 7-inch TFT screen (Supervision Panel), while some materials change on the upper surfaces.
Its equipment is distributed in the three usual finishes of the brand: Concept, Drive and Emotion. In the access one it already has 17-inch wheels, a 7-inch touch screen, rear parking sensors or lane maintenance. In the middle, it receives adaptive cruise control, opening and starting without a key or mixed upholstery. The top of the range adds to the above the 10.25-inch screen, JBL sound system or LED headlights.
The Kia Niro’s plug-in hybrid powertrain remains the same as the old one, which we’ve already tested. It combines the 1.6 GDI gasoline engine with an electric mechanic (more powerful than in the conventional hybrid). In total it develops a power of 141 hp and 265 Nm. Added to the set is an 8.9 kWh lithium-ion battery that allows it to have an electric range of up to 49 kilometers.
Kia Sorento Plug-In Hybrid
The plug-in hybrid version of the 2021 Sorento hardly differs from the combustion variants we tested. On the outside, the charging socket on the right rear wing or the Eco Plug-in lettering are the only clues. Inside, just the specific menus of the multimedia system (with a 10.25-inch touch screen) and the digital instrumentation (with a 12.3-inch screen) behind the wheel. Holds all seven seats.
Its propulsion system is interesting. It combines a 180 hp 1.6 T-GDi petrol engine with an electric motor with 67 kW of power and 304 Nm of torque. Thus, it offers 265 CV of joint power and a torque of 350 Nm.
It is powered by a liquid-cooled 13.8 kWh capacity battery, with which it can travel up to 57 km in electric mode on a single charge. This battery is located under the front seats, which, together with a redesigned 67-litre fuel tank, does not take up space in the trunk. It has 809 liters of capacity (the 3.3 kW charger subtracts a bit) with five seats in use. . If all are used, the figure is 175 litres.
The range of the Sorento PHEV is structured in three levels of finish the simplest finish Drive we will find a truly complete endowment. The Emotion finish and the Emotion P. Luxury add even more technological, comfort and safety components.
Kia Xceed Plug-In Hybrid
In April 2020, the marketing of the KIA XCeed Plug-In Hybrid begins, the plug-in hybrid variant of the XCeed 2020, the crossover body of the compact, which we have already thoroughly tested. It stands out because its starting price is not exaggerated for a plug-in hybrid SUV, in addition to the usual 7-year brand warranty (or 150,000 km) that also covers the batteries.
The powertrain is the same as we know from the Niro PHEV we tested. It is made up of a 105 hp 1.6 GDI petrol block that works together with an electric one of 44.5 kW (about 60 hp), which together produce 141 hp and 265 Nm of torque . Power is sent to the front wheels via a dual-clutch automatic transmission. The electric motor moves with the energy provided by lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 8.9 kWh , with which it is capable of traveling up to 58 km in electric mode, which guarantees the DGT Zero label.
There are very few differences with the combustion versions. Change the front grille, in search of better aerodynamics and has a charging port on the left wing. The design of the wheels is also specific, as well as a new color for the bodywork. Inside there is a specific instrumentation suitable for the hybrid system and different menus on the screens of the infotainment systems on propulsion, recharging…
The Drive Tech and Motion finishes receive in Spain the letter “e” at the beginning (eDrive, eTech and eMotion) to highlight that it is an electrified version, although they are identical in terms of endowment to their equivalents with conventional engines.
Land Rover Defender P400e
The Land Rover Defender 400e is one of the plug-in hybrid SUVs that was present in 2020 announcing good country skills. It is based on the long body, with four doors and a longer wheelbase (the Defender 110) to accommodate five or six seats
It is the most powerful variant of the 2020 Defender, thanks to the combination of a combustion engine (a 2.0-liter four-cylinder supercharged with 300 hp) with an electric one, 140 hp, located in the front. The combined total power of the Defender 400e reaches 404 hp and 640 Nm of torque .
It is capable of moving in electric mode for 43 km (homologation data), thanks to the lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 19.2 kWh , which was mounted in the lower part of the rear of the vehicle. It announces good performance and low consumption, in addition to being able to count on fast recharging.
Most notably, it seems that it retains country skills, with electronic air suspension, which adds to the all-wheel drive and outstanding towing capacity of up to 3,000 kg.
Range Rover Evoque P300e
Months after the presentation of the Range Rover Evoque 2019, in the spring of 2020, its version with plug-in hybrid mechanics arrived on the market. This is the Evoque P300e, which premiered this technology in the brand’s SUV. The system combines an Ingenium 1.5 three-cylinder gasoline engine with 200 HP of power, with another electric motor mounted on the rear axle. This is joined by a new, lighter eight-speed automatic transmission. Total system power is 309 hp and 540 Nm of torque .
Behind the rear seats is the 15 kWh capacity battery, with which it can travel up to 66 km in electric mode and allows it to have the DGT ZERO label. It recharges in 6 hours and 42 minutes using a conventional plug, a time that is reduced to 1 hour and 24 minutes with a 7 kW wall charger and 30 minutes in a fast point (from 10 to 80%).
The system has three modes of operation. Hybrid mode is the default, designed to be efficient and can take data from the cartography if a destination is entered in the navigator. There is also the EV mode (purely electric) and Save (saves battery charge).
This new plug-in hybrid SUV is available in standard S, SE and HSE specifications, with tire sizes ranging from 18-inch to 20-inch. If you want to give it a touch of sportier style, the R-Dynamic pack can be combined with all of them.
Range Rover Discovery Sport P300e
The Discovery Sport P300e is the plug-in hybrid version of the 2020 Discovery Sport. There aren’t many details that distinguish it from other versions, beyond the cover on the left rear wing that houses the plug to recharge the battery. Even the trunk is identical, with 454 liters of capacity.
It shares the powertrain with the Evoque P300e, which unites a 1.5 Turbo petrol engine with an electric one (located on the rear axle) to achieve a total power of 309 CV and 540 Nm of torque . The gearbox is an eight-speed automatic and it has four-wheel drive. Its performance is good, reaching a maximum speed of 211 km/h and doing 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds.
The electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery with an 11.3 kWh capacity that gives it a range of 62 km in electric mode, for which it receives the Zero label from the DGT. It recharges up to 80% in just 30 minutes on a 32 kW fast charging station. In a domestic socket you need 6 hours and 42 minutes, a time that is reduced to 1 hour and 24 minutes with a 7 kW wallbox.
It can be chosen with up to four finishes, something unusual in vehicles with this propulsion technology. From the simplest Base finish, they have elements such as acceleration wheels, LED headlights, a multimedia system with a 10.2-inch screen with a rear view camera, rain sensors and lights. Also driving aids such as lane departure warning, fatigue detection, emergency braking… Those who want more refinements can choose the S , SE and HSE trims . They can all be upgraded with the R-Dynamics package. which gives it a sporty look.

It includes 13.1 kWh lithium batteries that allow it to achieve an electric range of up to 51 kilometers.
Range Rover Velar P400e
The Range Rover Velar P400e is the plug-in hybrid version of the luxury SUV that the brand renewed in 2021 (with few exterior changes, most notable inside the vehicle).
It uses the same powertrain as the Defender P400e, combining a 300bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with a 105kW (143bhp) electric for 404bhp and 640Nm of total power. It is associated with an automatic transmission and offers all-wheel drive, like the rest of the range. It announces good performance, since it can reach 100 km/h in just over 5 seconds.
Electrical energy is stored in a 17.1 kWh lithium-ion battery located under the boot floor (somewhat smaller than in the combustion variants, as well as the boot reservoir). It homologates 53 km of electric autonomy (the car in this mode does not exceed 140 km/h) and can be charged at a fast charging point, something that not all vehicles with this technology offer.
There are several energy management modes available to the driver, something very common in plug-in hybrids. It is also offered with different equipment levels, to which the R-Dynamic package can be added, which gives it a sportier look.
Lexus NX 450h+
Although it is very similar to the first generation, launched in 2014, the Lexus NX presented in 2021 is completely new. This adopted the TNGA-K platform of the Toyota RAV4, so it manages to be lighter and more dynamic than its predecessor, as well as a gain in space on board without hardly changing the external dimensions. But, without a doubt, the highlight of the Japanese crossover is the plug-in hybrid option, a first for the brand and with the name of Lexus NX 450h+ .
Along with the serial hybrid drive ( NX 350h ), the Lexus NX boasts a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) consisting of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder thermal engine with 185 hp and two electric motors, one of 182 hp attached to the front axle and another 54 hp to the rear axle. The power of the set is 306 hp , enough to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds and drive up to 63 kilometers without generating polluting emissions. The 18.1 kWh battery can be fully recharged in two and a half hours with a 6.6 kW port.
The gearbox, as in the rest of the Lexus and Toyota models, is made up of a planetary gear transmission that, for practical purposes, works the same as a continuous variator (CVT) . Once inside, the standard multimedia system is 9.8 inches, although there is the possibility of mounting a 14 “. Both have compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functions (the former wired and the latter wireless) and support file sharing via various USB ports (Type C and 2.0) and the Lexus Link App.
Unlike the NX 350h, the plug-in hybrid version can only be had in three trims: Executive , F-Sport and Luxury . In addition to the Lexus Safety System package, from the Executive finish the so-called Extended Safety Package is included, which includes a system that warns of the presence of other vehicles or cyclists just before opening any of the doors, detection of circulating cars in a perpendicular direction at crossroads or automatic parking aid with the ability to act on the steering, the accelerator and the brakes.
Mercedes GLA 250 e
The EQ Power models are Mercedes-Benz’s plug-in hybrids, with representatives across the range. The GLA 250 e is one of them, the bet with this technology for the compact SUV segment.
It uses to move the same technology as the Mercedes A 250 and other members of the compact family. It combines the 1.3 Turbo engine with 160 hp (in the GLA 200 it yields 163) with an electric motor that generates 75 kW (about 102 hp).
The total power of the system is 218 hp and 450 Nm of torque, which are sent to the front wheels (there is no 4Matic variant), through the 8G-DCT dual-clutch automatic transmission. Its performance is good, as it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 220 km/h.
The electric motor can move the vehicle by itself thanks to the energy stored in a 15.6 kWh capacity battery , located under the rear seats. It homologates 61 km of autonomy in electric mode, according to the WLTP cycle, for which it obtains the Zero label from the DGT.
Mercedes GLC 300 e (and from)
The Mercedes GLC 2019 has two plug-in hybrid variants, well differentiated, since one is committed to gasoline and the other to diesel, together with an electric motor. Both arrived on the market in the summer of 2020.
In the first case, the Mercedes GLC 300 e 4Matic, combines a 211 hp and 350 Nm of torque petrol block with a 90 kW (122 hp) and 440 Nm of torque electric motor. The result is a combined power of 320 hp and 700 Nm of torque , which are transmitted to the wheels through an automatic transmission and the Mercedes all-wheel drive system.
The second example is the Mercedes GLC 300 from 4Matic, which in this case combines the 194 hp diesel and 440 Nm of torque with the same electric drive, to achieve 306 hp and 700 Nm of joint power torque. It is also associated with the automatic gearbox and the 4Matic all-wheel drive.
In both cases, the electric motor is powered by energy stored in lithium-ion batteries with a capacity of 13.5 kWh. They are located under the floor at the rear of the vehicle, hence the trunk has a capacity of 395 liters (1,445 liters with the rear seats folded down). In both cases, the electric autonomy exceeds 51 km, which is why they obtain the Zero Emissions label from the DGT. Diesel is more advisable if you make many long trips a year, but it costs around 1,800 euros more.
Mercedes GLC 300 d (y de) Coupe
The Mercedes EQ Power family, which brings together the Daimler brand’s plug-in hybrids, added two alternatives in the summer of 2020 based on the Mercedes GLC Coupé 2019, an SUV with the air of a coupé that is more committed to dynamic behavior than to the practical section.
The pair of hybrid mechanics are identical to those mounted on the conventional bodywork of the Mercedes GLC. Equal plug-in hybrid mechanics is around 3,000 euros more expensive. One uses a gasoline engine and the other a diesel (an option that only Mercedes uses on the market). In the first case we have the Mercedes GLC 300 e 4Matic Coupé , which combines the four-cylinder gasoline engine, 211 hp and 350 Nm of torque, with an electric motor of 90 kW (122 hp) and 440 Nm of torque. The total power of the system is 320 hp and 700 Nm of torque.
On the other hand, there is the Mercedes GLC 300 4Matic Coupé , with 306 hp and 700 Nm of joint power, achieved thanks to the joint work of a diesel of 194 hp and 440 Nm of torque with the same electric motor.
In both cases they are associated with an automatic gearbox that sends power to both axles thanks to the 4Matic all-wheel drive. The 13.5 kWh capacity battery is responsible for electrical energy, enough to guarantee an electric range of up to 51 km, which makes them worthy of the DGT zero label. They are located at the rear of the vehicle, which reduces the boot capacity to 350 liters (compared to 500 in conventional versions).
Mercedes GLE 350 from
The 4MATIC Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, the plug-in hybrid version of the 2019 GLE, has different mechanics than most SUVs with this technology. It combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine with 194 hp of power, together with an electric motor that provides 136 hp and 440 Nm of torque. The maximum combined power is 320 hp, with no less than 700 Nm of torque.
In this way, the car boasts low consumption on the road, the handicap of plug-in hybrid cars, in addition to a very high autonomy in electric mode, of 98 km. The latter is achieved thanks to a battery with a high capacity: 31.2 kWh and, obviously, it has the DGT Zero label.
The size of the battery has forced to redesign the rear of the GLE and modify the rear axle. It somewhat reduces the capacity of the trunk, which remains at 490 liters. The battery can be recharged from 10 to 100% in 30 minutes, with the charging socket located on the rear left.
The benefits are very good, as it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and reaching 210 km/h. In electric mode the speed is limited to 160 km/h. Of course, its price is quite high, but it partially compensates for it with a larger standard equipment than traditional combustion models.
Mercedes GLE 350 Coupe
The 4Matic Coupé GLE 350 joined the brand’s range of plug-in hybrids, electrifying the second generation of the GLE Coupé (the first did not have it) in the summer of 2020.
This member of the EQ Power family uses the same powertrain as the GLE 350, combining a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine with 194 hp and 400 Nm of torque with an electric 100 kW (136 hp). Working together they deliver 320 hp and 700 Nm of maximum torque . It’s mated to a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic transmission and a 4Matic all-wheel drive system.
The 100 km of approved electric autonomy is noteworthy, thanks to the 31.2 kW capacity lithium-ion battery , a very high figure among plug-in hybrid SUVs. In addition, in electric mode it can reach 160 km/h, very high, which reaches 210 km/h using both engines. Also noteworthy is the acceleration data, as it reaches 100 km/h from a standstill in 6.9 seconds. At a fast charging point it recovers up to 80% of the charge level in 20 minutes.
This model has up to five different driving programs to vary power delivery or energy savings (Comfort, Eco, Offroad, Electric and Battery Level). A detail that adds to its very high level of equipment, with numerous driving aids, connectivity, air suspension, AMG exterior line, 20-inch wheels, leather upholstery, which partially justifies its price.
The MG EHS is a mid-size plug-in hybrid SUV (PHEV) that aims to compete with other brands thanks to a good relationship between its features, standard equipment and attractive price. Because although it comes from China, MG was careful to make the EHS consistent with what was expected by European customers.
From the access version, it is equipped with a 10.1-inch touch screen with connectivity to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital instrument panel, electrically folding and heated mirrors, access and keyless start or rear view camera. In general, the cabin of the MG EHS has a clean and horizontal design where the feeling of space is sought. In fact, the volume of the trunk is better than that of its rivals, since it covers 448 liters .
The MG EHS houses under its hood a powertrain made up of a 152 hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol block that works in solidarity with a 122 hp electric motor. The total power of the set is 258 hp and 370 Nm and the gearbox has six relationships for the combustion engine and four for the electric one, which transfers all the energy to the front wheels; there is no all-wheel drive option. In electric mode, it can travel up to 52 kilometers (WLTP) thanks to its 16.6 kW battery.
The MG EHS range is structured around two finishes: Comfort and Luxury . As for assistance systems and driving aids, it incorporates active cruise control, warning for the presence of vehicles in the blind spot, automatic emergency braking, alert for involuntary lane change, hill start assistant, tire pressure monitoring and traffic sign recognition. Options are limited to a choice of metallic paint and red leather upholstery.
MINI Countryman Cooper S E All4
The MINI Cooper SE Countryman ALL4 renewed its design in 2020 and increased its electric range. This plug-in hybrid version, originally launched in 2017, has proven to be one of the most demanded for its capabilities, finishes and having a Zero Emissions label. Its price, yes, is very high.
The cosmetic update follows the pattern seen on the 2021 Countryman: new bumpers, new light signature and fog lights with LED technology, Union Jack taillights, and new wheel sets and cosmetic packages (including one in Piano Black ). Inside, a new 5-inch digital instrument panel and improvements to the multimedia system that has an 8.8-inch screen in the console.
This plug-in hybrid is the most powerful variant in the range (JCW apart). Its propulsion system combines the work of a 125 hp 1.5 petrol three-cylinder engine that sends its power to the front wheels, and an electric one with 95 hp that acts on the rear wheels. The gearbox is the 6-speed Steptronic automatic.
The joint power is 220 hp, four horses less than the previous one. It also has a lower capacity battery (9.6 kWh compared to 10), but its autonomy in electric mode grows to 55 km (previously just 46). Its performance is very good, as it is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and reaching 196 km/h.
It is only available with a single finish, although there are several equipment packages with extra options and different styles.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross 2021 hit the market in March of that year with a plug-in hybrid mechanics, unprecedented in its predecessor. There are also notable aesthetic differences, with a more aggressive front and a revamped tailgate that eliminates the division in the middle that conditioned visibility. New wheel designs and body colors complete the design innovations.
In the mechanical section, it has a system that combines a 2.4-liter gasoline engine with 98 hp, and two electric motors, one with 82 hp that moves the front wheels and another with 95 hp that acts on the rear wheels to offer total traction. They are 188 hp as a whole (not all engines deliver their maximum power at the same time) and the system is linked to a CVT-type automatic gearbox that can be managed manually.
A lithium-ion battery with a 13.8 kWh capacity is responsible for the electrical part, with which it can travel up to 45 km in 100% electric mode, for which it has the ZERO environmental label. It has 359 liters of volume, which is not much for its dimensions, but it is the same as the previous all-wheel drive model (see test).
The brand offers the new hybrid Eclipse Cross in Spain with three levels of completion. The simplest Motion offers elements such as 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, electric parking brake, rain sensor, climate control and driving aids such as lane departure alert, SmartBeam, fatigue and cyclist detection, pre-collision warning and automatic city braking. Above are located in Kaiteki and Kaiteki +, which add technology and a more refined interior.
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the forerunners among plug-in hybrids. This Japanese SUV is one of the few generalists that we can find on this list and also one of the cheapest. Aesthetically it follows the same philosophy and presents a new design language that gives it a more robust appearance. At the front we see the brand’s characteristic Dynamic Shield and some chrome trims are distributed along the bodywork.
The interior of this model gains in quality with better finishes and materials, although without reaching the premium level. The rest remains practically the same with the 7-inch touch screen in the center console and a 4.2-inch TFT screen in the instrumentation. The habitability of this hybrid will be quite outstanding as it has space for five passengers (it cannot carry seven seats) and its 498-liter trunk is not reduced excessively (the normal one has 519 liters).
The Mitsubishi Outlander has several trim levels , but in this PHEV only the top one can be configured. It is the Kaiteki finish that has elements such as 18-inch wheels, heated steering wheel and front seats, LED headlights, parking assistance system with 360º camera, multimedia system with 7-inch screen, electric trunk lid or some assistance to driving.
The Outlander’s engine range is somewhat limited and this plug-in hybrid (see test) is one of the best-selling versions. It unites a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with two electric ones to achieve a total power of 203 hp. It is linked to a CVT change that allows various driving modes and has S-AWC all-wheel drive. It approves a consumption of 1.7 l/100km (see consumption test) and has an electric range of 52 kilometers.
Opel Grandland Hybrid
The Opel Grandland went from being a modest SUV in 2017 to an exciting one in 2021. It lost the “X” in the name, but the exterior and interior changes were noticeable, making it much more attractive against the competition in the segment. For this, it not only uses a colorful aesthetic and the latest infotainment and security technology from the Stellantis group, but also its hybrid technology through the Opel Grandland Hybrid .
The visual highlight is undoubtedly the front, which drank from the one released in the Mokka and, later, in the Astra. Exactly the same thing happens inside, with a vertical design dominated by two screens : 12-inch for the instrument panel and 10-inch for the infotainment system. Opel maintains the physical buttons to manage the air conditioning system. And although the space on board is worth its 4,477 millimeters in length, the trunk is reduced from 514 liters to 390 liters due to the batteries.
The mechanical offer consists of a single gasoline engine combined with an electric one and is offered in two power levels: 224 hp and 360 Nm (front-wheel drive) or 300 hp and 520 Nm (all-wheel drive). The gearbox is automatic with eight relationships and the autonomy in fully electric driving is 65 kilometers in both cases (WLTP). In terms of performance, the most powerful model completes the acceleration race from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 235 km/h.
The finishes of the Opel Grandland Hybrid are structured in three levels : Business Edition , GS Line and Ultimate . All have a wide range of series and driving aids. Among the optional technologies, IntelliLux LED headlights with matrix function can be equipped thanks to the 84 diodes present in each headlight. A Night Vision system is also available that uses an infrared camera to detect people and animals up to 100 meters ahead.
Peugeot 3008 Hybrid
The Peugeot 3008 2021 updated the successful compact SUV launched in 2017. It maintains the two plug-in hybrid options, although it now has a very different image and more technological and safety equipment.
The new plug-in hybrid SUV can be chosen with the Hybrid 225 e-EAT8 with 225 hp and front-wheel drive or the Hybrid4 300 e-EAT8 with 300 hp and all-wheel drive. Both have a 200 hp (147 kW) combustion engine. In the first case it is associated with an 80 kW (110 hp) electric motor and the all-wheel drive version adds another motor on the rear axle.
The electrical part is powered by a 13.2 kWh capacity battery with which they have 56 or 59 kilometers of autonomy respectively. Using the 3.7 kW charger as standard, a charge is completed in 4 hours, but a 7.4 kW charger can be equipped that reduces this time to one hour and three quarters.
Instead of the mode selector with three options of the combustion variants in these plug-in hybrids there are four, (Electric, Hybrid, Sport and 4WD (the latter only with all-wheel drive). They allow the driver to select the propulsion mode at will. the interior gain a larger screen for the infotainment system and multiple driving assistance systems.You can choose between three equipment levels (Active, Allure and GT) that can be completed with an extra package (Pack), different upholstery options and a decorative pack (Black Pack).
Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid
The Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid is the plug-in hybrid version of the third generation of the sports SUV, the Cayenne 2018. In the previous generation, the Stuttgart firm had already had a hybrid variant and later with a plug-in hybrid, the Cayenne S-Hybrid .
Moving it is handled by a 340 hp 3.0 V6 turbocharged engine, combined with a 136 hp electric one. The total power is 462 hp (the previous generation was 420) and 700 Nm of maximum torque. In addition to helping to reduce consumption and emissions, it is a sports car, hence the electric motor intervenes in all the most extreme driving modes offered by the standard Sport Chrono package, a tactic already used by the 918 Spyder.
Located in the range between the Cayene S (40 hp) and the Cayene Turbo (550 hp) it could make many Cayenne diesel buyers consider it. Its performance is excellent, as it is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 5 seconds and reaching 253 km/h. With its 14.1 kWh batteries (30% more than before) it can drive up to 44 km, at speeds of up to 1,354 km/h. In a conventional socket, recharging takes 7.8 hours, but can be reduced to 2.3 if the optional 7.2 kW (230 V and 32 A) charger is used.
It maintains all-wheel drive through Porsche Traction Management (PTM) and an electronically controlled multi-disc clutch. The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) active suspension system is standard, and the electric roll stabilization system (Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, PDCC) and the possibility of pulling up to 3.5 tonnes of trailer are optional. Its price, being exempt from registration tax, is quite attractive for everything it offers.
Porsche Cayenne Coupe e-Hybrid
In the same way as its brother, the second body in the range, the Cayenne Coupé, offers plug-in hybrid versions, which represent an extra cost of around 4,000 euros… in exchange for having a much sportier aesthetic, especially seen from behind.
The Cayenne Coupé Hybrid can be chosen with two engine combinations, which it shares with the Porsche Cayenne 2018 and the Panamera 2017. The access step, the Cayenne E-Hybrid Coupé combines a 3.0-liter V6 turbo gasoline (with 340 hp) and another electric to deliver 462 hp . Above is the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupé , which chooses the 550 hp 4.0-liter biturbo V8 for the combustion part and an electric 136 hp to reach no less than 680 hp (500 kW) and a torque of 900 Nm. They are, without a doubt, among the most dynamic plug-in hybrid SUVs.
Both are capable of moving in electric mode as long as they do not exceed 135 km/h and can spend little, as long as the 14.1 kWh capacity of its battery, which is placed under the trunk floor, is used judiciously. It recharges in 6 hours in a conventional plug, but the brand offers a Wallbox if you want to reduce the time.
The brand, as usual, has thought about dynamism when fine-tuning these models, regardless of the propulsion technology. Its endowment levels are very high, practically the same as the Cayenne E-Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo E-Hybrid…. as well as a very extensive list of extras, which raise its already high starting price.
Renault Captur e-Tech
In the summer of 2020, the Renault Captur range was completed with a plug-in hybrid variant, the Renault Captur E-TECH, which stands out among SUVs with this technology for its interesting entry price and for having the DGT Zero environmental label.
The most interesting thing about this version is found under the hood. The Renault Captur E-TECH Plug-in (manufactured in Valladolid, by the way) combines a 91 hp 1.6 four-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors, one with 53 kW (72 hp) and the other with 23 kW (32 hp) , with a total system power of 160 hp and 225 Nm of torque , managed by a clutchless gearbox.
The electric propellants are powered by a 9.2 kWh 400 V lithium-ion battery, with which it homologates 50 km of electric autonomy (up to 65 in the city), provided that they do not exceed 135 km/h, speed at which that the combustion propellant would come into play. It is the first car of the brand with this technology.
In Spain the Captur E-Tech is marketed only with the finish It is very complete, as it includes 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, fog lights, climate control, keyless access and start, driving mode selector, electric parking brake, Navigator with 9.3-inch screen and rear camera or digital instrumentation with 10-inch screen… Up to 25 color combinations can be chosen for the bodywork and roof.
Seat Tarraco eHybrid
After the Seat León, the Seat Tarraco 2019 was the second vehicle of the brand to have a plug-in hybrid mechanism under the hood, specifically since the beginning of 2021.
Called Tarraco e-Hybrid, it uses a propulsion system similar to that of the Volkswagen Golf GTE, with a 150 hp 1.4 TSI petrol engine and a 116 hp electric motor. The total power of the system is 245 hp , which is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
It has a lithium ion battery placed under the second row of seats (only offered with five seats). It has 13 kWh of capacity, with which it could travel up to 48 km in electric mode. It has quite remarkable performance among plug-in hybrid SUVs.
It can be chosen with the two most complete trim levels in the range, the Xcellence (more comfort-oriented) and the FR , which emphasizes the sporty image with some minor differences in appearance, as well as a sports suspension. In both cases, the endowment is very extensive, with connectivity and security technology such as the one we were able to discover in our test.
The Suzuki Across 2021 is a plug-in hybrid SUV that derives from the Toyota RAV4 Prime, the version of the popular SUV with this propulsion technology, the result of the agreement between both Japanese companies. Curiously, the Suzuki arrived on the market before, which differs very little from the RAV4, just in the front. It does not change the rest of the bodywork or the interior.
The brand’s first vehicle with this technology combines a naturally aspirated four-cylinder gasoline engine with a displacement of 2.5 liters and two electric ones, one on the front axle with 134 KW, and another that drives the rear wheels, with 54 KW. Together, the three engines offer 306 hp , a figure that guarantees good performance. In fact, it advertises that it completes the 0 to 100 km in 6 seconds.
The hybrid system is powered by a battery with 18.1 kW/h capacity, which takes between 5 and 9 hours to recharge, depending on the charging power. Its autonomy in electric mode is very remarkable, as it reaches 75 kilometers . The driver chooses the most suitable system to move, Auto (by default), ECO (to save energy) and Sport (which prioritizes the thermal engine). In addition to the Trail mode, which makes the car suitable for off-road driving. It can move in electric mode up to 135 km/h.
Its price is somewhat high, but in addition to a very powerful engine it offers a good interior size and a remarkable trunk, with 490 liters of capacity. And a very complete equipment in its only trim level, the GLX that includes 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, climate control, heated leather seats and the complete set of Safety Sense security systems, as well as a five-year warranty.
Toyota RAV4 Plug-In Hybrid
The Toyota RAV4 Plug-In Hybrid is the plug-in hybrid version of the fifth generation of the popular SUV launched in 2021. It stands out for its spaciousness and for the great electric autonomy that it promises and that, as we saw in our first contact, it can achieve.
To propel it is responsible for a set of engines consisting of a 2.5 gasoline combustion engine and two electric ones (which it shares with the Suzuki Across and Lexus NX), with e-CVT transmission and an intelligent all-wheel drive system. It is capable of reaching 180 km/h and 100 km/h from a standstill in just 6 seconds.
With its 18.1 kWh capacity battery, it has a range in electric mode (up to 135 km/h) close to 75 km, a very remarkable figure. Hence, it homologates very low emissions and obtains the Zero label from the DGT. These limit its load capacity a bit, since the trunk has 520 liters of capacity, instead of 580 of other variants.
The Toyota RAV4 plug-in hybrid can be chosen with two finishes. From the simplest Advance is very complete, with 18-inch wheels, bi_LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision warning, lane alert and assistant, fatigue detector, traffic sign reader, heated seats… The most complete Style Plus adds technology and better materials.
Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid
The Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid completed the 2021 Tiguan range. It is the first plug-in hybrid version of the SUV that becomes the cleanest option in the range, with a Zero emissions sticker.
It shares the renewed image of the SUV, but differs from other versions by the cover on the left front wing where it hides the battery charging plug, chrome moldings on the lower part of the rear bumper or the eHybrid emblem on the tailgate.
In the mechanical section, it combines the 1.4 TSI gasoline engine and a 110 hp electric motor, with a total maximum power of 245 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. A six-speed dual-clutch DSG gearbox sends power to the front wheels. The electrical part is powered by a lithium-ion battery located under the rear seats with a capacity of 13 kWh with which it homologates a range of 50 kilometers.
The interior of the Volkswagen Tiguan eHybrid does not vary from that of other conventional versions, except for the information displayed on the instrument panel. Its hybrid nature does affect the trunk, with a capacity of 476 liters , which can increase to 1,516 if the rear seats are folded down. In Spain, this model is offered with Life equipment levels (very complete) and the R-Line, which gives it a sportier appearance.
Volkswagen Touareg eHybrid
At the end of 2020, two plug-in hybrid variants were added to the 2018 Touareg range, which came to occupy the space left by the most powerful SUV diesels.
The simplest version is the Touareg eHybrid, which combines a 340 hp 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine with an electric motor that adds up to 100 kW (134 hp). The combined power is 381 hp , with a maximum torque of 600 Nm. There is also the Touareg R, the sportiest version of the model that also chooses this hybridization system. In this case, it uses the same scheme to achieve 462 hp and 700 Nm of torque.
They are associated with an eight-speed automatic transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The electrical section is powered by the energy stored in a lithium-ion battery with a 17.9 kWh capacity. They give it an electric range of up to 47 km, as long as it does not exceed 135 km/h (then the combustion engine comes into play.
It is possible to choose between two levels of endowment. On the one hand, the Atmosphere has LED headlights, 18-inch wheels, digital instrumentation or a 15-inch touch screen. The Elegance has elements that vary the appearance of the body and details of the cabin. The Touareg R has its own trim line.
Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine
With the arrival of the compact SUV to the Swedish brand, new possibilities opened up, such as the incorporation of three-cylinder engines. But the thing did not stop there, since there is also a plug-in hybrid version and later a 100% electric copy. In the case of the Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine , it follows in the footsteps of its older brothers, although using less powerful mechanics and more appropriate to its size.
The T5 Twin Engine precisely combines a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with an electric motor to achieve a combined output of 262 hp . The seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is the only option for this example. The plug-in hybrid can only go with front-wheel drive despite the fact that other versions are offered with AWD all-wheel drive.
It has an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.3 seconds and its maximum speed remains at 205 km / h. The battery of the Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine has a capacity of 10.7 kWh and with that it is capable of traveling just over 40 kilometers in electric mode. The approved consumption for this model according to the WLTP cycle is between 2 and 2.5 l/100km.
Another positive point for the Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine is that it is available with all the finishes available in the range. Like the traditional combustion versions, it can be chosen with the Momentum finish, with the Business, with the Inscription or with the R-Design.
Volvo XC60 T8 Twin Engine
The 2017 Volvo XC60 is the latest addition to the Swedish brand’s range. Although it is a little brother of the Volvo XC90, it sits on the same SPA modular platform (although with a few centimeters less). It is also inspired by it aesthetically, with a very similar front grille and the same headlights with Thor’s hammer . It also has a lot of personality and the rear lights are more reminiscent of the Volvo V90.
The passenger compartment of this model is considerably modernized to position itself as a full-fledged premium. It stands out for quality and materials worthy of a superior segment, as well as highly advanced technology. Among its innovations is the Pilot Assist system, which makes the SUV semi-autonomous. The interior space is not outstanding, but it is quite good for its dimensions. The trunk has 505 liters of capacity.
The Volvo XC60 maintains the same levels of equipment as other models of the brand. It starts with Momentum, which already has 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control or an 8-inch panel. Above is the Inscription that adds 19-inch wheels, LED headlights or a 12.3-inch panel. The sportiest is the R-Design, which has a differentiated body and interior details, such as the steering wheel, with another approach.
The plug-in hybrid powertrain is the T8 Twin Engine. It unites a 2.0-liter gasoline engine with an electric one, to achieve a combined power of 407 hp. This version comes standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The operation is like in the rest of hybrids and has 45 kilometers of electric autonomy.
Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine
The passenger compartment remains a technological showcase and no major changes have been necessary either. The multimedia system is controlled from that 9-inch touch screen in a vertical position, which is now completed by adding compatibility with Android Auto (it was already with Apple CarPlay) and integrating Spotify between the applications. Quality, minimalist design and habitability are maintained in its seven seats.
Mechanics with light hybridization have been incorporated and the plug-in hybrid that was previously available is maintained. The Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with another electric motor. The result is 390 horsepower and is linked to the eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD all-wheel drive. Its electric autonomy is 47 kilometers.
In the equipment section , the T8 Twin Engine version can also go with various finishes. With the Momentum access it already has 19-inch wheels, light and rain sensors, memory seats and many driving aids. With the R-Design it brings out its sportier side with a more marked aesthetic. The top of the range is the Inscription that adds leather upholstery, wood inserts or Pilot Assist.
