The Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport are both now available as plug-in hybrids, following on from PHEV versions of the bigger Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. With official CO2 emissions of 32g/km and a zero-emissions range of up to 41 miles for some Evoque models, drivers will be taxed at six per cent in 2020/21.
The bigger Discovery Sport PHEVs qualify for a 10 percent BIK rate in 2020/21 with CO2 emissions starting at 36g/km and a zero-emissions range of up to 38 miles. With the diesel models attracting benefit-in-kind rates of 37%, the saving for company car drivers for choosing a PHEV will add up to thousands every year.
Be careful though, as the choice of wheels will affect the ratings, as bigger tyres have more drag and increase the fuel consumption.
