The best company cars for £30,000 to £40,000

These are the very best company cars for a £30,000 to £40,000 budget.

Citroen e-Berlingo

  • Best seven-seater
  • Variant: Plus XL
  • Price: £31,835
  • Powertrain: 52kWh battery, 1x e-motor
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: TBC/82mph

The Dacia Jogger has seven-seat practicality covered with hybrid power, but what if you want that sort of flexibility with zero emissions? Step forward the Citroen e-Berlingo Plus XL, which packs a 52kWh battery for more than 200 miles of range, in a package that can seat seven people or offer up to a staggering 3,500 litres of load capacity.

That EV powertrain means ultra-low BiK rates, and Citroen has worked hard to overcome the Berlingo’s van-based origins, with a digital dashboard, a 10-inch infotainment system, and neat touches such as foldable tray tables in the front seatbacks.

Honda Civic

  • Best family car
  • Variant: 2.0 eHEV Sport
  • Price: £36,240
  • Powertrain: 2.0-litre 4cyl hybrid
  • CO2/BiK band: 113g/km/27%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 7.9 seconds/111mph

The Honda Civic is in its 11th generation, but the Japanese hatchback has arguably never been more competitive. It has a trick hybrid powertrain that only uses petrol to drive the wheels when it absolutely has to. Its driving dynamics are among the best in class, thanks to crisp handling and accurate steering.

And interior quality is now right up there with the best in this category. It’s not pure-electric, of course, which means it can’t compete with EVs on levels of Benefit-in-Kind tax. But lots of people are still after a car that can go the length of the country on any given day, without having to worry about recharging. The Honda Civic is perfect for that task.

Hyundai Kona

  • Best SUV
  • Variant: Electric Advance 65kWh
  • Price: £38,540
  • Powertrain: 65kWh battery, 1x e-motor
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 7.8 seconds/107mph

Another recommendation here for our reigning Car of the Year, this time in all-electric spec. Hyundai has been at the sharp end of putting electric powertrains into cars people really want to buy, and the latest Kona is a fine example. 

It has more cabin space and boot capacity than the original model, and a WLTP claimed range of more than 300 miles. Advance trim is at the more affordable end of the Kona line-up, but that doesn’t mean you need to scrimp on standard equipment.

You get front and rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels, a huge touchscreen and a heat pump (to maximise efficiency) as standard. That’s not a bad spec when you consider it costs less than £30 per month in tax.

MG5

  • Best estate 
  • Variant: Trophy Long Range 
  • Price: £33,440
  • Powertrain: 61kWh, 1x e-motor
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 8.3 seconds/115mph

Is the MG5 the best estate car on the planet? No. But as a company car choice, its all-electric powertrain puts it into a niche class for running costs with few rivals. 

The MG5 offers more than 200 miles of range from a single charge, and while its driving dynamics are pretty dull and uninvolving, those monthly BiK rates will make you forgive them a tad more easily.

That’s not all; the MG5 is a practical family car. There’s 479 litres of boot space with the rear seats in place, and this rises to a genuinely useful 1,367 litres when they’re folded down.

Volvo EX30

  • Best small car 
  • Variant: 200kW Single Motor Extended Range Plus
  • Price: £38,490
  • Powertrain: 69kWh battery, 1x e-motor 
  • CO2/BiK band: 0g/km/2%
  • 0-62mph/top speed: 5.3 seconds/112mph

Volvo has really put the cat among the pigeons with its long-awaited baby EV, the EX30 – and aggressive pricing and strong specs make the Swedish model look an absolute steal for company-car choosers.

We’ve gone for the 200kW single-motor version here, which packs 268bhp – enough for a 0-62mph time of barely five seconds. It also brings a portrait-layout infotainment system, front and rear parking sensors, heated seats and steering wheel, and a heat pump to maximise the Volvo’s range. 

Yet the P11D price of sub-£40k and that EV BiK rate mean that even higher-rate taxpayers can have an EX30 on their driveway for £26 per month in tax. Wow.
