considering moving to Uber X was wondering what vehicle recommendations there are?
cheers

Kia Niro Hybrid, Outlander PHEV, Octavia all spring to mind.

I would avoid a Prius personally as I think they will have to start loading premiums at some point due to it being the most crashed car in the UK.

CT200 seems like it would be too small for PHV, seen plenty about though. The new Camry touring would be good but not sure when its out.

ahh if thats the case

then VW transporter...

Some companises are begging for a 9 seaters. I'm looking at Vito atm but I have VIP clients which need V-class.

I was hoping to de-badge it so they won't notice it. Also 9 Seater is CC exempt.

If you want to save a lot of money from maintenance get a Prius.

My expenses so far for 3 years and 120k on the clock :

200l 0w20 oil barrel is £480 from ebay which equals £2.40 per litre = £9.12 per oil change (3.8L)
Engine oil extractor pump from ebay £20
Air and cabin filters are £3 each from china , bulk order of 30 is more than enough
Oil filter....screw it , it's a prius.
Every 6 months 4 brand new tyres £160
Brake pads and discs are still ok

Sounds about right.

spoke to rental company just now he said average prius cost £25 per week to maintain (inc parts and labour).

Get a VW Sharan / Seat Alhambra , you get to do some XL jobs. They have side sliding doors , very practical.
