Hybrid SUVs and crossovers are everywhere but it can be bewildering for buyers, given the many different technologies they feature. One example? This electrified Juke uses a totally different hybrid system to the Qashqai E-Power, despite both coming from the same manufacturer.

In fact, this Juke is more closely related to the Renault Captur, the important difference being the Nissan is not a plug-in hybrid so can’t travel meaningful distances on electric power alone, and therefore doesn’t offer the equivalent incentives for company drivers. Swings and roundabouts, though, because it is a little cheaper for private buyers. In other areas it builds on existing Juke strengths like funky styling, nippy handling and decent practicality, while also feeling more sprightly thanks to the electrified boost.

Running costs for a Nissan Juke Hybrid SUV

“It has enough electrified juice to save on fuel costs, especially in town driving”
Because it’s not a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) the Juke can’t claim the triple-digit mpg figures, Benefit In Kind savings or potential to do your short journeys on electric power alone like some of its rivals so can’t match the potential running cost savings. On the plus side its hybrid system is a lot simpler because you don’t have to plug it in (handy if you don’t have a driveway or home charging point) and it has enough electrified juice to save on fuel costs, especially in town driving. Whether you can claw back the £3,000-plus it costs over a non-hybrid Juke is another matter, the fact you can only have the hybrid on the higher trim levels also making it appear a little more expensive. It also costs a fraction more than the equivalent Captur, though it is cheaper than the PHEV version of the Renault and Nissan promises a small but welcome improvement in residual values over the standard Juke to help those monthly finance costs.

 

Reliability of a Nissan Juke Hybrid SUV

“Nissan doesn’t match the five-year warranties offered by rivals like Hyundai, the seven years from Kia or the potential 10 years cover Toyota gives”
Nissan generally has a good reputation for reliability, though much of the hybrid technology is actually supplied by its partner Renault. That’s fine, though, because the French brand also does well on dependability surveys and both have long experience building electrified cars. Nissan doesn’t match the five-year warranties offered by rivals like Hyundai, the seven years from Kia or the potential 10 years cover Toyota gives for the equivalent C-HR if you commit to servicing it with a main dealer.
