Delivery times: These plug-in hybrids are still receiving funding

The government subsidy for plug-in hybrids will be abolished at the end of 2022. So much earlier than previously thought. The promotion of pure electric cars, on the other hand, will be steadily reduced as planned. So if you still want to take advantage of the government premium for plug-in hybrids, you have to hurry up. AUTO BILD shows which plug-in hybrids have a particularly short delivery time and, according to the new car comparison portal Carwow, could still be delivered on time!

Jeep Renegade: the reliable one

The Jeep Renegade Plug-in Hybrid is the only new-generation Renegade model still available with all-wheel drive. The combustion brothers are only on the road with front-wheel drive.

According to the manufacturer, the Renegade plug-in hybrid should cover up to 50 kilometers purely electrically. In the simplest version, the Jeep costs 38,900 euros, the top model at least 45,600 euros.

Toyota Prius: the hybrid pioneer

What distinguishes the Toyota Prius is already in the name. Because “prius” is Latin and means “earlier”, and the Prius is the first hybrid that went into mass production – that was at the end of 1997. The Prius is now also available as a plug-in hybrid. In Germany, this is one of the plug-in hybrid cars with the shortest delivery time. According to Carwow, the Japanese is only three to four months in coming.

Kia Ceed Sportswagon: the practical one

Recently there was a facelift for the Ceed models from Kia. This also applies to the Ceed Sportswagon (SW). In terms of looks, the front in particular has been touched up: new apron, new grill and new lights. With the Ceed SW you not only get a plug-in hybrid, which currently has a very short delivery time (just four months according to Carwow), but also a fresh car with a modern design.
The cheapest Kia Ceed SW PHEV (Vision equipment line) is 34,990 euros. It gets a bit more expensive with the Spirit, which costs 36,190 euros, the top model Platinum is available from 41,190 euros.

DS 7 Crossback E-Tense: the individual

The DS 7 is French through and through. Whether it’s the entrance, the equipment or the handling – comfort and individuality are at the top of the list of priorities for the Crossback E-Tense.

But even more interesting is the extremely short delivery time of the DS 7 Crossback E-Tense. According to Carwow, it is currently only three to five months.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: the dark one

Since 2021, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has only been available as a plug-in hybrid. The SUV uses the technology of the Outlander and relies on two electric motors (front and rear) and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder petrol engine. Together, the drives result in a system output of 188 hp. Thanks to the 13.8 kWh battery, the Japanese should be able to travel up to 61 km fully electrically. Incidentally, the word “Eclipse” comes from English and means “darkness”, a characteristic that is almost unfair to the Asian.

Mitsubishi currently lists the Eclipse Cross as an immediately available model. So if you want to use a plug-in hybrid in the short term, you should take a look at the Mitsubishi. The base price is 39,990 euros.
