Anyone for a cut-price plug-in hybrid?

Hybrid cars are increasingly becoming seen as desirable, however their price premium over the equivalent petrol & diesel models holds back many buyers.

Those buyers are exactly the sort of folk who could be interested in the latest news from Motorpoint, who specialise in nearly-new low-mileage cars, and who yesterday issued a press release offering huge savings on several of the most popular plug-in hybrid vehicles currently available.

Motorpoint, the UK’s largest car supermarket, with seven sites across the UK, are apparently offering their customers savings against new of over £18,000 on the Chevrolet Volt, currently selling the Volt 5 door with Sat Nav for £18,799.  The eye-catching eco-friendly hatchback features 17” alloys, climate control, cruise control, parking sensors and perforated leather seating. It also returns 234mpg and thanks to its 27 g/km emissions it’s exempt from both road tax and the Congestion Charge.

They are also offering the Volts sister car, the Vauxhall Ampera Positiv 5 door for £17,999, over £16,000 less than its new list price.  Equally well equipped and fuel efficient, the Ampera was Electric Car of the Year for 2012.

Motorpoint are also offering the perennially-popular Toyota Prius 1.8 VVTi Plug-in 5dr CVT Auto with leather seats for £19,999 – a saving of over £15,000 against new.
