Hot on the heels of the announcement of a new all-electric estate car - the MG5 - MG has revealed its first plug-in hybrid model. Called the HS Plug-in, it's a PHEV version of the HS that's only been available in pure petrol power up to now, and rivals the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4. It pairs a 160bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine with a 90kW electric motor, giving a total output of 256bhp, and emits 43g/km. MG quotes a pure-electric range of 32 miles, which is less than the Peugeot, but the MG is cheaper to buy and run.
