Most eco cars (hybrid's or all electric) have a certain LOOK AT ME I'M AN UNDERSTATED BORING ECO CAR DRIVEN BY A BORING PERSON look.

I wonder what the best looking hybrid or electric only car is. Are there any that tick your boxes?

I'm biased 'cos I really want one.


However, I think the best looking car, right now, is the BMW I8

Classic sporty lines, smooth curves and clever use of the second, blue, colour that shows it's electric. A stunning example of what car designers can do when they think about it and don't just put a box on wheels.

I really like the i8. Fantastic performance and economy! It's going to look out of place in the supermarket car park though! Maybe in 20 years time all cars will look like that.

They are coming down in price on the used market. Currently a year old one will set us back around £70k in the UK.
