More and more SUVs feature hybrid powertrains to improve fuel economy - these are some of the best. Many automakers are also jumping on the hybrid or electric bandwagon to meet ever-stricter emissions regulations.

Fuel prices might see a significant drop come the end of June, but it will only go up again in the next couple of months.

South Africans are spoilt for choice when it comes to hybrid vehicles, and many people are not aware of the vast variety that's available, other than just Toyota's latest Prius.

BMW has an entire range of hybrids available from the 3 Series to the 7 Series, while Mercedes-Benz, Range Rover, and Porsche have hybrid SUV offerings available locally too.

Here are some of the best current, and upcoming electrified off-roaders that you should consider:

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is one of the most long-standing hybrid SUVs, and has proven to be dependable, while the Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid has about 335kW on tap. 

The Range Rover P400e PHEV still exudes class-leading luxury, but offers impressive economy benefits. Other mentions include the Bentley Bentayga Hybrid, and the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine - the latter is also available locally.
