If your cat’s stuck up a tree, there are plenty of superheroes who can save it: Superman, Wonder Woman – or, more realistically perhaps, Bob with the big ladder from next door. Likewise, there’s no shortage of plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) to rescue drivers who are attracted to zero-emissions motoring but are not ready to go fully electric. However, the one we’d recommend calling on is the Lexus NX.

It’s a large SUV that can officially travel 42.2 miles purely on electric power – further than its Audi Q5 50 TFSIe and BMW X3 xDrive30e rivals. In real-world driving, 30-35 miles should be possible just on electricity – in other words, enough for most commutes. If you’re a company car driver, the NX’s official electric range translates into a lowly 7% benefit-in-kind tax rate, compared with the 11-13% you’d pay on the Q5 or X3.
