    For UK drivers, its a pity the 15% battery increase is unlikely to raise the 'official' 33 mile EV range to 40 miles which would move it from the 12% to the 8% BIK band for 2020/1. A useful saving. Another interesting factor is the engine is changing from just under 2.0L to 2.4L but is claimed will give better MPG, so companies paying advisory rates will have to pay considerably more. The 2.0L PHEV needs to achieve about 38mpg on petrol, possible but takes some restraint. On the over 2.0L rate it will only have to do 25mpg for the driver to break even, easy to beat, that's going to make it very attractive even to higher mileage drivers and reduce the incentive to charge and just run on petrol. not so Green!
