10 Cheapest SUVs with Plug-In Hybrid Propulsion in 2023 (Buyer's Guide with Prices)

Plugin hybrids first appeared as transitional vehicles, that would combine the best features of both worlds: unlimited range of internal combustion and efficiency of battery power. However, fusing two types of propulsion resulted in rather expensive cars, that priced out the majority of buyers. Despite this mixed success of P-H-EVs, we still believe in the viability of this technology and would argue that the cheapest models can be called “remotely affordable”.

Rundown of all vehicles that were mentioned in this #ATelectriccars release:

00:00 Introduction

00:52 Toyota Rav4 Prime


If we were to disregard the ultra-expensive Range Rover, the Toyota Rav4 Prime would grab the spot of the longest range plugin-hybrid SUV. The Prime moniker indicates that Toyota’s 2.5 liter Dynamic Force 4-cylinder engine is assisted with two electric motors and an 18 kilowatt hour battery.

02:01 Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV


2023 Hyundai Santa Fe PHEV gets the brand’s familiar drivetrain setup, that here promises 30 emission-free miles and 70 M-P-Ge. Larger than most plug-in S-U-Vs available on the market, the mid-size Santa Fe has plenty of cabin space to seat 5 adults.

03:13 Dodge Hornet PHEV


After a ten year-long hiatus, Dodge finally releases an all-new model. The 2024 Dodge Hornet is basically an Alfa Romeo Tonale with a muscle car face and some American-style interior finishes.

04:24 Ford Escape PHEV


After the last facelift, the fan favorite Escape A-K-A Kuga is putting on a less “fishy” face with a single brow DRL, new headlights and a traditional grille. The P-H-EV version is the current flagship of the Escape lineup that yields 210 horsepower.

05:29 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV


As of 2023, the recently overhauled Outlander PHEV is available across all major markets featuring enhanced drivetrain components and a standard 7-seat layout. Available in three trim levels, this SUV showcases a modern exterior design, 18-20 inch alloys, and LED lights.

06:48 Kia Sportage PHEV


Closely related to the Tucson, the 2023 Kia Sportage PHEV relies on the same drivetrain setup, but offers more standard equipment for the price.

08:04 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid


The facelifted Crosstrek has already arrived to the international markets and the Hybrid version is to follow in the nearest future. The refreshed crossover gets a larger front grille, slimmer LED headlights and even more black plastic cladding to shield the wheel arches.

09:13 Renault Captur E-Tech PHEV


The 2023 Renault Captur Plugin hybrid cross hatch is among the most affordable European plugins with youthful looks and sprightly performance. It has signature moon crest shaped DRLs, narrow grille and a swooping roofline painted in black.

10:17 Hyundai Tucson PHEV


2023 Hyundai Tucson PHEV is available on the upper-level SEL and Limited trims, powered by a 1.6L Turbo with an electric motor and 13.8kWh battery with 33 miles.

11:33 KIA Niro PHEV

To the delight and surprise of Kia fans, the futuristic Habaniro concept is turned into a production model. The 2024 Kia Niro PHEV has extended range of 33 miles and a more powerful powertrain of 183 horsepower.

  1. Cmon guys, the first company that gets me 100 miles all electric will get my money. 31 and 40 miles wont cut it.
    Don't know why they stopped making the Chevy Volt that was on the right track.
    Of the ones listed I guess I'd go with the Kia Niro
    Driving a Chevy Bolt atm and love it but I think my next car will be a PHEV if they work out the low Erange problem.
    The prices seem fair if you can actually get one at those prices.
