Renault Zoe Z.E. 40 First Drive

Renault's new Zoe Z.E. 40 promises the greatest range of any mainstream EV on the market today. With an official range of up to 250 miles depending on model, only Tesla's line-up can beat that range figure, but they cost far more than twice the amount of...

VW e-up! review

Volkswagen has given its up! range a mild update, and the all-electric e-up! has benefited from the tweaks to the range too. Given that the little EV was one of the vanguard of electric vehicles to come over to the UK, it is important that changes have been...

Hyundai Ioniq Electric review

Hyundai's new Ioniq is the first model to be offered in a choice of three electrified powertrains - hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full electric. Each has a different rival in its sights, with the Ioniq Electric tested here aimed squarely at the Nissan Leaf....

VW up! review

The original VW up! is a great little city car, but Volkswagen has given its smallest model a mid-life refresh. Alongside the traditional styling tweaks is a new engine line-up, and improved equipment levels. Intended to update the up! to keep up with and...
