The Best Hybrid Car Lease Deals Available Right Now 2023

Author: Cameron | Updated: 23rd April 2023
 

There’s been a huge increase in interest in electric cars recently, with the UK Government sticking with their plan to phase out the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2030.

However, not everyone is quite ready to make the switch to a full electric car, so a good halfway house is a hybrid car. These models are powered by a conventional combustion engine, an electric motor and battery, so you will still save on fuel, as well as running costs thanks to lower CO2 emissions. Hybrid cars also have longer ranges than full electric cars and don’t need to be charged as often. What’s more is that the government won’t be phasing out the sale of new hybrid cars until 2035, making them a great lease option if you’re wanting an affordable car that’s better for the environment.

 

There are three different types of hybrid cars:

 
  • Mild hybrid: mild hybrids use an electric motor alongside a combustion engine, but they can’t be powered by one or the other independently. Instead, a small electric motor assists the engine, providing modest power and efficiency boosts. You don’t need to charge a mild hybrid car because the engine does this automatically.
  • Full hybrid: full hybrids have an electric motor and combustion engine that can work simultaneously or independently. The electric motors are bult into the car’s drivetrain, meaning you can drive the car in electric-only mode, albeit at low speeds and for limited distances. You don’t need to charge a full hybrid car because the engine does this automatically.
  • Plug-in hybrid: a plug-in hybrid vehicle uses a bigger onboard battery that needs to be charged once empty. These models provide much better electric-only ranges (usually around 30 miles), meaning you won’t have to use fuel when commuting locally. It’s important that you remember to charge the battery, otherwise your car will use a lot more fuel carrying an empty, heavy battery pack around.
 

To help you find your perfect new hybrid car, we’ve put together a guide showing you our best hybrid car lease deals in 2023.

Toyota Yaris

 
Toyota Yaris Hybrid
 
  • Lease from: £196 per month*
  • WLTP CO2: 92-112g/km
  • Fuel economy: 57.6-68.8mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 6,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

The current fourth-generation Nissan Yaris is one of the cheapest hybrid cars you can buy today, but its price doesn’t say a great deal about its abilities.

For a long time now you’ve been able to buy a Toyota Yaris Hybrid with sub-100g/km of CO2 emissions. But this newest Yaris has been built solely to be electrified, with the car built on Toyota’s latest new small car platform. Another great thing about this newest Toyota Yaris is that the entire range comes with one engine that’s more powerful than in previous generations.

You’ll find the Toyota Yaris Hybrid very easy to live with, thanks to the fact that its battery is a self-charging one that is mainly there to boost fuel economy. Plus there’s a couple of electric motors that back up the main 1.5-litre petrol engine to produce a total of 116bhp, which will be punchy enough for most.

With a Toyota Yaris lease, you can choose from three great trim levels, the standard of which comes with alloy wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and a full 7.0in infotainment system readied with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy smartphone connectivity. On top of this, you’ll get handy driver convenience features, including a reversing camera and road sign assist.

Hyundai Kona Hybrid

  • Lease from: £208 per month*
  • WLTP CO2: 112-115g/km
  • Fuel economy: 52-56mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 5,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

The Hyundai Kona Hybrid is just one version of Hyundai’s small SUV, which can be specified as a full electric car or self-charging hybrid. It’s the latter that we’re focusing on here.

Just like the Toyota Yaris before it, you won’t need to plug in this version of the Hyundai Kona. It has a 1.6-litre petrol engine that is paired with an electric motor, giving it a healthy bit of power, namely 139bhp. You can drive on pure electric power at low speeds, which allows you to save fuel in stop-start traffic.

All Hyundai Kona Hybrid models are very well-equipped as standard. Even the entry-level SE Connect comes with 16in alloy wheels, automatic headlights with dusk sensor, an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a parking system with rear camera and guidance system.

If you value a decent audio system in your car, look at the mid-range Premium trim. It adds a Krell premium sound system with eight speakers and a subwoofer, plus larger 18in alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control and heated front seats and steering wheel.

Toyota Corolla Hybrid

 
Toyota Corolla 2022
 
  • Lease from: £211 per month*
  • WLTP CO2: 101-111g/km
  • Fuel economy: 52.4-62.7mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 8,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

It may come as a surprise to some of you, but the Toyota Corolla is officially the world’s best-selling car, and has been for a while. That’s because it achieves a perfect blend of performance, fuel-efficiency and advanced modern technology. As far as hybrid cars go, too, it has a design that’s conventional, but smart.

What the Toyota Corolla does better than any other family car is offer an incredibly comfy ride, arguably one of the best in its class. This makes it a perfect option for UK drivers, mainly for its ability to smooth out rough surfaces, especially potholes.

If you’re looking for the most passenger and boot space in your Toyota Corolla, there’s an estate version, called the Corolla Touring Sports. There’s way more room for passengers to stretch their legs, while the boot size increases from 361 litres to 598 litres.

Whichever Toyota Corolla you decide to lease, you’l have the option of two self-charging hybrid engines. The first is a 1.8-litre petrol-electric unit with 120bhp and will be more than enough for most drivers. But if you need a bit more punch, look at the bigger 2.0-litre unit with 177bhp, which feels more eager when you need overtaking power on the motorway.

Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

 
hyundai-ioniq-plug-in-hybrid-1119-01
 
  • Lease from: £235 per month*
  • WLTP CO2: 105g/km
  • Fuel economy: 61mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 5,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

The Hyundai Ioniq is a very unique vehicle in that it’s offered in three different types of electrification. That’s right, you can have it as a self-charging hybrid, plug-in hybrid or full electric car.

We’re focusing here on the self-charging model here, which has a great blend of smooth, punchy performance and all the credentials of a well-rounded family car. With a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox that shifts quickly, you can choose to manually override gear changes with paddle shifters.

Inside, there’s a good amount of quality, space and tech to keep you and your family comfortable. All Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid models come with a 7.0in digital instrument cluster that smartly displays useful information right in front of your eyes. Adding to this feeling of modernity in the Ioniq Hybrid’s cockpit is the standard 8.0in infotainment touchscreen display. It’s a good system too, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard allowing you to mirror your smartphone onto the display, so you can enjoy your favourite apps on the move.

Three specs of the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid are available to lease – SE Connect, Premium and Premium SE. Mid-range Premium trims add heated front seats, a sat nav, upgraded eight-speaker stereo and wireless charging pad. Look to the top-spec Premium SE model if you want leather seats. However, most people will be more than happy with the SE Connect, which comes packed with advanced safety systems and enough onboard media for the modern driver to be satisfied.

Hyundai Tucson HEV

 
hyundai-tucson-n-line-uk-0821-01
 
  • Lease from: £255 per month*
  • WLTP CO2: 127g/km
  • Fuel economy: 49.6mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 5,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

The Hyundai Tucson has undergone a fairly radical redesign to ensure that it keeps up with the sea of competition that it faces in the mid-size SUV class. This fourth-generation Tucson has a unique “jewel-like” grille that features integrated daytime running lights, while a sportier touch has been addeded through larger fenders, short overhangs and angled wheel arches.

Where the new Hyundai Tucson really impresses is with its brilliant self-charging hybrid engines. The range consists of a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine which is available with either the back up of mild-hybrid or full-hybrid technology. Our pick of the range is the 1.6 T-GDi 230 Hybrid unit, with 227bhp and a battery that’s big enough for fuel-saving driving in stop-start traffic. It’s also got an impressive 0-60mph time of just 6.8 seconds, which means it can even give some hot hatches a run for their money.

One area where the Hyundai Tucson really excels is in its passenger space. Two six-footers will sit comfortably in the back with no issues. There’s even reclining seats in the back that allow those sat there to kick back and snooze easily.

Move round to the boot and you’ll find one of the biggest cargo spaces in this class. 620 litres is available, making it an extremely family-friendly space, while 40/20/40 split folding rear seats mean you have brilliant flexibility to prioritise passenger or luggage space.

Kia Sportage HEV

 
Kia Sportage 1.6T-GDi
 
  • Lease from: £265 per month*
  • WLTP CO2: 152g/km
  • Fuel economy: 42.2mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 24-month contract, 5,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

Just like the model before it, the Kia Sportage has had some front-end surgery, adding in a bigger, sporty grille and “boomerang-style” headlights that have radically transformed this car into a truly great modern family SUV.

Kia has given you plenty of engine choice when it comes to leasing the Sportage. There’s a petrol engine and two diesel units, with manual and automatic gearboxes to choose from too. All mild-hybrid engines come with an automatic gearbox, as does the savvier plug-in hybrid model, which can officially travel more than 40 miles on EV power alone.

If you want a bit more traction, there’s four-wheel drive models available, although they do slightly reduce fuel emissions.

All Kia Sportage models are very well-equipped from the off. Kicking off the range is the ‘2’, which has a very decent amount of equipment as standard. It has 17in alloy wheels, tinted rear glass and plenty of body colour features on the outside to give it a very smart design. Then you get onto the car’s features and things just get better, with a reversing camera with front and rear sensors, automatic lane keeping assistance and cruise control.

Skoda Octavia iV PHEV

 
Octavia iV hatch
 
  • Lease from: £397 per month*
  • WLTP Electric Range: 34 miles
  • WLTP CO2: 22g/km
  • Fuel economy: 188.3-256.8mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 5,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

This plug-in version of the Skoda Octavia is a brilliant option if you want to get seriously low CO2 emissions and massively cut fuel costs.

All Skoda Octavia iV models come with a 1.4-litre petrol-electric engine that can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 7.4 seconds, thanks to its beefy combined power of 201bhp.

With an EV-only range of 34 miles, you’ll be able to travel locally without burning any fuel. What’s more is that when you go to charge your Skoda Octavia plug-in in just four hours.

Even with a big(ish) 13kWh battery pack onboard, you’ll still benefit from a useful 450-litre space in the boot. On top of this, there’s also brilliant rear passenger space, so those in the back will be able to stretch out in comfort, even for longer-distance journeys.

As a plug-in hybrid, the Skoda Octavia iV is a brilliant business lease option. Not only will your payments be cheaper because of tax exemptions if your company is VAT registered, but company Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax will be incredibly low, thanks to this car only emitting 22g/km of CO2.

Lexus NX 450h+ PHEV

 
Lexus NX Plug-in Hybrid
 
  • Lease from: £522 per month*
  • WLTP Electric Range: 40 miles
  • WLTP CO2: 21g/km
  • Fuel economy: 313.8mpg
 

*Monthly lease price based on a 48-month contract, 8,000 miles per year and 9-month initial rental. Prices accurate at the time of writing.

 

The Lexus NX plug-in hybrid is widely considered one of the best PHEV models available on the market. It’s already won awards for being the ‘top dog’ in this class.

First of all, the design is stunningly modern, with a huge, angular grille, sleek LED headlights and sporty inlays. Where it really excels is on the road, though, where a fantastic engine consisting of a 2.5-litre petrol unit, powerful electric motor and 18.1kWh battery deliver brilliant performance. Combined, the car has a whopping total of 305bhp that can send you from 0-60mph in just 5.5 seconds.

On all-electric power, the Lexus NX 450h+ operates in complete silence, providing smooth and punchy performance that builds you up to motorway speeds and beyond with ease. In real-world driving, you can expect an EV range of around 30-35 miles, making it perfect for local journeys if you don’t want to burn any fuel. When the battery runs flat, you can fully charge it in just 2.5 hours using a standard 7.4kW charger.

Another great bonus of choosing the plug-in hybrid Lexus NX is that you get four-wheel drive as standard, promising greater traction.
