It’s Christmas Eve Eve in 2020 and the unthinkable has happened. Blitzen has sprained 2 antlers whilst ice skating, Comet has overeaten on hay and now can’t move. Cupid, Dancer, Dasher AND Donner missed the last boat home from Finland and the next one isn’t until boxing day at 10:59 am and Prancer and Vixen have fallen out over a game of Snowopoly and now won’t speak to each other. Wait what about Rudolph? Well, Rudolph might have “borrowed” the sleigh and snuck off without telling anyone.
As you can guess The Big Man, Mr FC, The Grand Present Giver, Santa himself is not a happy bunny and has two options –
1 – Cancel Christmas (The Toothy Fairy will enjoy gloating about that)
2 – Find another ride last minute
But wait! Who can help him with such a need! Why the Elves at UK Carline can. Being the number one leasing broker for all magical beings he’s asked us for some help.
First off, we’ve asked him to write his list and check it twice –
- Boot space is a must (the sack might be magic but it’s still large)
- Comfort for long commutes
- Fuel economy – he cares a lot about the polar ice caps.
- Co2 levels
At first, we were a bit worried about how many presents he was going to be carrying but he reassured us that he only has one bag, it’s magical and stores over 620,000,000 presents. Over the years he’s had to invest in some serious magic.
With this in mind, our first thought was maybe the ever so stylish, classic looking and powerful Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 5dr 2.0 D165 R-Dynamic.
CO2 – 161
Length – 172 inches
Width – 83 inches
Height – 65 inches
0 to 60 mph – 9.50 seconds
Fuel – Petrol
What is there not to love about the Evoque? Suitable to transport all those presents. And granted he’s going to be hopping in and out of the car a lot and eating many mince pies so the 10way heated electric seats and the adjustable steering column is perfect to adjust as the night goes on. And let’s not forget about the DAB and Bluetooth connectivity.
But there is a snag with this…it’s Petrol. He’s already losing valuable land in the North Pole and can’t risk losing any more (he’d have to have the Elves move in with him and they struggle keeping the hot cocoa station clean at work)
Hmmm, ok the Evoque is off the nice list. Ow, what about the Mercedes-Benz EQC 408hp AMG Line Auto 4Matic?
Meets all the comfort and ease list –
CO2 – 0
Length – 188 inches
Width – 83 inches
Height – 64 inches
0-62 mph – 5.10 seconds
Fuel – Electric
The same size as the Evoque AND it’s electric. You’ve DAB, MBUX Multimedia System, heated front seats and electro-pneumatic 4way lumbar support.
And with it having rapid charging you can top up the battery in 40 minutes.
But will every village, town, and city in the world have a suitable charging station for him? Also, does he want to be stopping for 40 minutes at a time to get it charged up to like 80%? He might have magic but he’s not a miracle worker.
No No No, none of these sound good. At this rate, Christmas will be cancelled and everyone will be getting socks posted to them in January!
Wait! Santa stop!
We’ve found it! It was staring us in the face this whole time.
It doesn’t run just on coal (Petrol) or Electric. It’s the best of both worlds! A self-charging hybrid estate.
The boot space in an estate is always large, but pop the rear seats down and you could even sleep in it (handy when you get home and everyone is partying inside your house).

Not a problem Santa. Now off you go dashing through the snow in your comfy Lexus RX laughing all the way.
