I’m in a quandary; I do 80,000km per annum driving. I cover the whole country and am wondering hybrid or diesel. I drive a 2017 BMX X3 at present. Thinking of 530e or 520d.
With that high mileage, I'd suggest that you're still better off sticking with diesel, as you'll get far better fuel economy and, as you'll be changing your car frequently, the mileage is going to have a bigger effect on resale values that what powers it. That balance might change in a few years time, but today, in 2018, diesel definitely makes most sense for you. The 520d is an excellent car. As is the 530e, I might add, but the diesel still has the edge for long-distance driving, as you need to plug the 530e in regularly to get the best economy from it.
