Every Plug-in Hybrid EV on sale in Australia in 2023: April update

All the PHEVs on sale in Australia, and every PHEV still on the horizon

Between conventional hybrids and full-electric vehicles, there exists a handy third option: the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, often referred to as a PHEV.

Hybrids are familiar, and often affordable, thanks to Toyota’s pioneering Prius range and now a full line-up of available hybrids.

Electric vehicles, on the other hand, represent something of an expensive unknown to a lot of buyers in this relatively early stage of the segment’s growth.

To see the full list of PHEVs available in Australia, keep scrolling – but if you’d like an explainer on just what a PHEV is, well…

What is a plug-in hybrid EV?

Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) can offer the advantages of a battery-electric vehicle without sacrificing the peace of mind that comes with having an internal combustion engine (ICE) under your bonnet.

For the average Aussie commute, most PHEVs can run on electricity for emissions-free motoring, but will function as a conventional hybrid if the battery runs out.

A downside compared with regular hybrids is that the pure-electric driving range requires a bigger battery, which often makes for a heavier and less fuel-efficient vehicle than comparable hybrids, and even some ICE vehicles when using the engine alone.

This weakness might appear to contradict a plug-in hybrid’s low fuel consumption figures, though it’s worth noting that the litres-per-100 km figure assumes you’ve ventured off with a fully-charged battery. Therefore, optimising the fuel efficiency of a PHEV often comes down to your charging regime.

If you head off with a flat battery, you’ll be dragging around dead weight, but if plugging in every night becomes part of your routine, you’ll make the most of the technology underneath your vehicle.

Medium SUVs have become a popular segment for PHEVs, and one of the latest on the scene is the Peugeot 3008 GT Sport AWD Plug-In Hybrid.

Interestingly, the 3008 is more powerful than the sleek 508 Fastback PHEV (see above), with its 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine linked to electric motors at each axle for a total power output of 222kW and 520Nm, resulting in a 0-100km/h time of 5.9 seconds.

It also has a larger 13.2kWh battery, which provides greater all-electric driving range.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300e medium SUV is one of the German carmaker’s most popular electrified models, which isn’t surprising considering it only costs about $7000 more than the petrol GLC 300.

It features a 13.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack which supplies energy to an electric motor for up to 46 kilometres of emission-free driving.

It’s worth noting a plug-in hybrid version of the next-generation GLC, due here in May, isn’t expected at launch – so you’d need to get in quick to secure an outgoing GLC 300e.

Volvo has dropped pure internal-combustion vehicles from Australia, with its line-up consisting of mild-hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or battery-electric vehicles.

The Volvo XC60 T8 Recharge was previously titled T8 Polestar, but that sub-brand has separated from Volvo to produce separate all-electric vehicles, including the Polestar 2.

Underneath, there is a larger 18.8kWh battery pack, allowing for a 75-kilometre electric-only driving range.

A 2.0-litre turbocharged and supercharged petrol engine works in tandem with a rear-mounted electric motor for a total system output of 335kW and 709Nm.

After that, a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder takes over for a more conventional driving experience.

With 215kW of power and 420Nm of torque, the X3 xDrive30e is the powerful combustion-powered X3 without straying into the coveted M family, completing the zero to 100km/h dash in 6.1 seconds.

A more-powerful P510e powertrain can be added to the HSE and Autobiography grades, bumping outputs to 375kW and 700Nm.

Official ratings have exceeded initial claims made by Land Rover last year, with an electric driving range of 113km and CO2 emissions as low as 18g/km beating the suggested 100km and 30g/km, respectively.

When fully charged, it has an all-electric driving range of 51 kilometres.

For the flagship Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, a plug-in hybrid with a turbocharged V8 engine seems like an oxymoron, but that doesn’t matter when driving on battery power alone for up to 50 kilometres.

When combined, the Panamera’s acceleration is blistering, with all-wheel-drive traction and a combined 850Nm of torque, allowing the big limo to hit 100km/h from a standing start in just 3.4 seconds.

The McLaren Artura is only the second all-new car in the company’s 12-year history, combining electric power with a twin-turbo V6 engine.

This consists of a 430kW/584Nm 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 – featuring a 120-degree vee to allow more room for packaging the twin-turbochargers and lowering the centre of gravity – and a 70kW and 225Nm electric motor.

The petrol-electric combination brings the powertrain’s total system output to 500kW and 720Nm.

Weighing just 88 kilograms, the 7.4kWh battery in the Artura is bolted under the fuel tank at the centre of the car.
