The Mini Cooper S E Countryman All4 PHEV's range is now 35 miles on electricity alone, which is a 30 percent improvement over the previous model. We told you some details in June about the Mini Cooper S E electric model; it will also be at the show and goes into production later this year in the U.K.

Rather than focusing purely on the fuel economy benefits of the current RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota has chosen to also emphasize the performance advantages of the electrified variant, which is more powerful, slightly faster and a more enjoyable drive than the non-hybrid. It's an interesting strategy that Toyota claims is responsible for a 150-percent increase in RAV4 Hybrid model sales over the previous generation.
