Eco-friendly cars for city and town driving in 2021
It used to be the case that small city cars were always the most eco-friendly options for town and city driving. Thanks to electric vehicle and hybrid technology, this is no longer true. There is now no need to compromise on luxury, space and performance, with many family and adventure-friendly vehicles also offering excellent fuel economy about town, low or zero emissions and a fantastic driving experience all in one. We take a look at some great options available in 2021.
Land Rover Discovery Sport Plug-in Hybrid
With up to 34 miles of emission-free driving from every charge, and all the luxury and versaility you would expect from a Land Rover Discovery Sport, the plug-in hybrid offers enough pure electric range for most driver’s daily needs about town, but also all the benefits of a conventionally powered car. Drivers of this refined and adventurous vehicle can enjoy up to seven seats, smart storage solutions and all of the latest features and technology enjoyed by the whole Discovery Sport range. The plug-in hybrid varient offers low tailpipe emissions thanks to the combined driving using both the electric motor and the engine, at 44 g/km co2.

Combining the hybrid technology with the innovative internal and driving technologies that help the Evoque stand out in its class, you benefit from a premium driving experience as well as reduced running costs and combined tailpipe emissions of 44 g/km co2.
As a luxury pure electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-PACE offers totally emission-free driving 100% of the time, with a range of up to 292 miles on a single charge, along with all the refinement and style you’d expect from a Jaguar flagship vehicle.

A great all-rounder, there are no compromises with the Jaguar I-PACE.
