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....

Audi A3 Sportback e-tron review

The Audi A3 Sportback e-tron has, like the rest of the A3 range, been the recipient of a mid-life refresh. As one of only two plug-in offerings from Audi, the hatchback is at the vanguard of the firm's electrification plans - which are set to expand dramatically...

VW Golf GTE First Drive

Volkswagen has been giving its Golf range a refresh with extra equipment and some nice styling tweaks. Thankfully, the Golf GTE hasn't been missed out, with VW even dropping the price of the PHEV Golf at the same time. Next Green Car takes the plug-in hybrid...

Toyota Prius Plug-In First Drive

The figures behind the new Prius Plug-In shows that Toyota is taking PHEVs seriously. After the first generation's rather poor electric range, this second iteration has very strong economy statistics, wrapped up in a far more tempting package. Next Green...

Volvo V90 D4 review

For some, a Volvo really should be an estate. It's been a while now though since the Swedish manufacturer relied on its wagons for sales success, thanks mainly to the popularity of its SUVs. Nevertheless, the return of the big Volvo estate is a welcome one,...

Volvo V40 D2 review

There are a number of excellent premium hatchbacks on the market, with the likes of the BMW 1-Series, Audi A3, and Mercedes A-Class the most well recognised. Often overlooked - but unfairly so - is Volvo's V40, which has recently had a refresh in an attempt...
