Top 10 electric & plug-in hybrid cars in Frankfurt

Too busy to visit this year’s IAA in Frankfurt? Not to worry, Fleet Europe will be there to bring the news that matters to you as an international executive involved in corporate mobility.

To get you up to speed, we have already listed the top 10 electric and hybrid models that you should know about. They bring electric motoring within reach of plenty more company car drivers.

Looking for the plug-in hybrid crossovers in Frankfurt? Then click here.

  1. VW ID3. Three battery variants make sure VW’s Golf-sized EV covers most of the market. Entry-level prices should be sub-€30k.
  2. Opel Corsa-E. The German interpretation of the Peugeot e-208 has all the trumps to become a fleet hit, including a WLTP range of more than 300km.
  3. Mercedes A 250 e. The plug-in hybrid premium C-segment hatchback went extinct when Audi killed off the A3 e-tron. Mercedes has a go at it with the A.
  4. Mercedes B 250 e. The BMW 225xe Active Tourer finally gets competition. The B Class has a bigger battery that can be charged with DC as an important USP.
  5. Mini Cooper SE. The iconic British hatchback finally gets electrified. The 32.6kWh battery yields 232km of range and can be topped up at 11kW AC in 3hours and 15 minutes.
  6. Mercedes EQV. The very first premium shuttle on the market boasts more than 400km of WLTP range and is the second model in Mercedes EQ lineup.
  7. Skoda Superb. At last the Czech limousine gains access to the VW Passat GTE’s organs to become a plug-in hybrid.
  8. Kia Ceed SW. Next to the all-new XCeed, the Ceed SW also gets a plug-in hybrid powertrain derived from the Niro.
  9. Smart Fortwo & Forfour. Gone are the combustion engeins at Smart, it's 100% electric now. Hyper-connectivity is its middle name.  
  10. Byton M-Byte. This smartphone-on-wheels has the biggest on-board screen available on the market and is packed with digital technology. Prices should be attractive for a big electric premium crossover.
