There’s a reason the multi-award winning Nissan LEAF is the best selling electric vehicle in the UK. It’s proved itself as both reliable and easy to drive in a number of independent tests, making it a favourite for anyone looking for an electric family car. With smart cruise control and the ability to literally park itself, it’s also the car of choice for anyone interested in being part of the innovative vehicle-to-grid charging pilot, Powerloop.

Want a fast car? Want a load of room? Want a tonne of tech features and over-the-air upgrades that drop as presents from your generous Uncle Elon? There’s no mistaking the showstopping Tesla Model X when it zooms into view.

New for Autumn 2019, a completely redesigned, overhauled and improved Renault Zoe will have a better battery (the new Z.E 40 battery upgrade potentially adds another 100 miles of range), better performance and better handling. It promises to be a all round better car than the 'original' Zoe, and we can't wait to see it
Great for: Commuters
Tesla Model 3
Great for: Everyone!
Following the Model S and X comes the Model 3. It’s exactly what we’ve come to expect from Tesla; it’s fast, it’s jam-packed with tech, it’s got a great battery with great range. And it’s a bit of a departure for Tesla, in that it’s an affordable, mass market 5 door saloon. It could be the Model T for the electric generation. And it’s finally coming to these shores en masse
The Jaguar I-PACE is a great choice for a luxury SUV - electric or not - matching supreme luxury with zero emissions. It's an utter joy behind the wheel, and if you're hankering after a bit of out-and-out noise with your drive, you can use Jaguar’s own engine soundtrack which ranges from ‘calm’ (pretty quiet) to ‘dynamic’ (volume turned to 11). And then there's the roomy interior; open the doors and you’ll be met with so much soft leather and high-shine wood you'll think you're in an Edwardian gentlemen's club.
Great for: Luxury lovers
The BMW i3 is a cool little car that's perfect for nipping around the town. It's one of the only electric sports cars to be designed from the ground up, and it shows. Its striking good looks show off the the carbon fibre body to maximum effect, which also helps towards the exceptional acceleration and lightweight drive.
Great for: City slickers
The Tesla Model S is the car that made electric vehicles cool. Today, it’s still the fastest around, doing 0-60 in as little as an incredibly breathtaking 2.5 seconds. (And yes, that’s the fastest acceleration of any car, not just an electric model).

Great for: The innovators
The new generation e-Golf delivers what you’d expect from VW’s flagship EV, with decent range, great performance, as well as the classic Golf stylings that would be familiar to all. In fact, the e-Golf is that rare beast; an electrified version of a petrol/diesel offering (as opposed to an EV designed from the ground up), that feels more than that. This is innovation wrapped in a cloak of familiarity
