    With that price range your looking at the first gen smaller battery 530e.

    If you don’t care about looks, then you can go for the basic SE version instead of the MSport.

    You should get the full 20km on electric this time of year. It that will drop during winter months.

    We have a 172 version and my parents love it. They’ve only filled the petrol tank twice in the 2 years they’ve owned it!
