Think of hybrid motoring, and the Toyota Prius is the obvious option. It was one of the first mainstream models to make petrol/electric motoring a realistic prospect – and now the current car’s prices have dropped temptingly low.

Toyota Prius (2009-2016) review

Flagship T-Spirit trim comes well equipped, too, with sat-nav and park assist included as standard, showing that eco-driving doesn’t mean sacrificing your luxury kit. A 1.6-mile all-electric range helps keep emissions down, while the 1.8-litre engine emits just 92g/km of CO2, so even this used model is exempt from road tax.
