Porsche Panamera hybrid topped the list as slowest depreciating hybrid
After the announcement of the ban on sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2040 in the UK, many people are weighing up a future with electric cars and how viable that will be.
There is still an element of anxiety around electric cars due to the current high costs and generally low range.
Most of the affordable electric cars on sale in the UK come with sub-100 miles of range which many believe is not sufficient.
Hybrid cars, however, offer low emissions travel, increased range and still feel like a powerful vehicle, so they could be the perfect place for someone to start.
Now cap hpi has revealed a list of hybrids that retain their value well after 30,000 miles or three years.
The Porsche Panamera, a luxury hybrid, came out on top retaining 81.8 per cent of its value over that period of time.
It was followed by the BMW 7 Series and Volvo XC90 with 75.7 per cent and 70.6 per cent retained respectively.
Cheaper options than manage to retain the majority of their value over three years/30,000 miles include the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer (2015), BMW 3 Series (2012) and Kia Optima.
Commenting on the study, James Dower senior editor from hpi said: “Hybrid vehicles have jumped in popularity and provide a great mix of economy and green credentials.

“The choice of models available to consumers continues to expand and provide credible options in all segments, from small cars to large SUVs.”
Mr Dower added: “Petrol hybrids values increased for the fourth month in a row with average values rising by 1.1%.
“It’s a growing market as we see more manufacturers releasing new models with hybrid powertrains and it appears that consumers have embraced the technology with few concerns over the life of a battery.”
