Peugeot e-208 Allure Premium: It’s still rare these days that an all-electric version of a car is more desirable than its ICE counterpart, but that’s exactly the case with the e-208. The standard car’s style, refinement and comfort perfectly matched the EV’s near-silent 134bhp motor and effortless, linear acceleration. It’s backed by a 217 mile range and a rapid DC 100kWh charging capability, which is rare in this sector. It’s obviously a great company car choice, particularly if your business requires multiple short hops, because all versions are rated at one percent. The entry-level Active Premium will cost just £59 for lower rate users, but we’d add another couple of quid to our tax bill for the much better equipped Allure Premium.
Volvo XC90 T8 Recharge Inscription Expression: It’s getting on a bit now, but the handsome and versatile XC90’s appeal remains undimmed. Key to its success is a third row of seats that is actually suitable for adults, while it’s also good to drive, in a wafty and easy-going sort of way. For business owners, however, it’s the Recharge plug-in models that really catch the eye, especially the recently facelifted versions that get a larger 18.8kWh battery that increases EV range to 42 miles and drops CO2 emissions to 28g/km. As a result, it falls into the seven percent BiK band, meaning higher rate earners will pay £1,870 in tax – less than half the £4,292 they’d be liable for with the old car.
