5. Mercedes-Benz E-Class 350 e SE From £45,555
From the lightning strike style day-time running LED headlights, across the familiar well-proportioned grill, all round understated elegance, Mercedes Benz has produced something that carries class everywhere it goes. Starting at £43,055 (incl Govt grant), it features a 2.0-litre 4 cylinder petrol engine plus electric motor. Mercedes claim that you can do 21 miles on pure electricity and takes around 3 hours to fully charge. The only visual differences between the hybrid and a standard E-Class are the blue brake calipers, badges and a charging port in the rear bumper. A stylish and refined choice for your future motoring.
