Electric cars on sale UK 2021

All the mainstream car makers are now offering high-quality electric models, either battery electric or plug-in hybrids, with even more models confirmed in the near future.

Electric cars offer many benefits over conventionally-fuelled vehicles: lower running costs with zero or reduced fuel, tax and congestion charges; emission-free driving reducing impact on climate change and air quality; a high tech, smooth and quiet driving experience.

Owning an electric car means a change in driving patterns and before making a purchase it is recommended that you consider your daily driving routine, charging capability of the vehicle and whether you are able to charge from home. See our EV buying guide for more information.
