The needs of company car drivers are many and varied – and any carmaker that can build a model that’s at the heart of what business users need is doing very well indeed. This is a tightly fought award, but our winner offers low running and taxation costs, desirability, reliability and is also a joy to drive.

Company car drivers can make significant savings by switching to an electric car, as zero-emission models attract no BIK next year. The Model 3 is part of Tesla's long-term goal of bringing electric cars to the masses, with the established BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4 firmly in its sights. The cheapest version promises a range of more than 250 miles and performance is strong across the entire line-up. The ability to use Tesla’s Supercharging network (albeit at a price) should quell any range anxiety. The Model 3 is our Company Car of the Year because it's capable, likeable and good to drive.

Runners up

BMW 3 Series company car

BMW 3 SERIES

With the previous model being a past Parkers Awards winner, the latest 3 Series continues to blend its smart looks and entertaining driving experience with low running costs. The 330e plug-in hybrid offers affordable BIK costs with its 39g/km CO2 output and good fuel economy from its petrol engine. That's not all, though. Thanks to its special XtraBoost function, this efficient car is also capable of being a very fast one for 10-seconds at a time. It may not be the sweetest 3 Series to drive in the range but it's still more rewarding than its immediate rivals.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class company car

MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS

The practical and stylish E-Class is a commendable alternative to the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6, especially when viewed as a company car. The E 300 de is what really impresses, with its plug-in hybrid technology bringing gains in mpg and tax savings, emitting 41g/km of CO2. The unusual pairing of its diesel engine and hybrid tech means you have low-speed refinement in town, but long-distance range for longer trips. Combine this with its plush interior and you have a cabin that offers reassuring comfort to match.
