Nissan Leaf review

The Nissan Leaf is a hugely important model for the electric car market. Having tested it on the car's UK launch in Scotland earlier this year, we've now had the chance to drive the Leaf for a week to get further into the minutiae of its capabilities. Having...

BMW i3s REX review

Having really liked the BMW i3, I was looking forward to testing the i3s as soon as it had been booked in. Featuring everything good about BMW's compact EV, but with a little more focus on a sharper driving experience, the i3s looked - on paper at least...

BMW 330e review

BMW's 3 Series is one of the best cars in its class, so there is plenty of promise for the iPerformance PHEV model. BMW's expertise with electric vehicles has seen it claim a fair amount of the market, and it has plug-in models across a large number of its...

Smart forfour ED review

Smart has taken a, well . . . smart (apologies) approach to its range, and decided to electrify it completely. Yes, there are only three models in the brand's line-up, but you can get each of them in pure-electric form. We test the largest of the lot, the...

Nissan LEAF 40kWh first drive

As the first second-generation EV to make it to production, the Nissan LEAF 40kWh is a pretty big deal in the plug-in car market. With more refined styling, a boost in motor power, and of course the headline larger capacity battery, the LEAF 40kWh certainly...

Smart fortwo coupe ed review

Smart might not have the largest range around, but it should still be applauded for offering an electrified version of each of its three models. Alongside conventional petrol models, Smart provides a pure-EV option of its fortwo coupe, fortwo cabrio, and...
