Electric car reviews

BMW i4 eDrive40 first drive

BMW’s i4 is a crucial model, not only in the firm’s history but arguably for the automotive market as a whole. For many years, the car world has needed an un-compromised electric version of the 3 Series - a model that practically defines the executive...

BMW iX xDrive40 first drive

BMW’s next generation of electric vehicles is effectively brought into the now with the iX. Large, striking, and with a long range, the iX is the antithesis of BMW’s first generation EV - the i3. But surprisingly it shares plenty of similar themes. We...

Volvo XC40 Recharge Twin review

Volvo's XC40 Recharge is the Swedish firm’s first pure-electric model to wear the badge. Packaged in a mid-sized SUV shape that’s full of Swedish style, the electric XC40 provides a practical basis for the all-electric Volvo. Review by Chris Lilly VOLVO...

Fiat 500C 42 kWh review NGC

Electric power and urban runabouts often combine brilliantly, with a responsive feature, no tailpipe emissions, and a short daily mileage required. In fact the Fiat 500 is one of the best cars in its class at the moment, partly because of that electric powertrain....

Volkswagen ID.4 Pro Performance review

Volkswagen might have pitched the ID.3 as next big chapter of its history, but arguably they’ve got the final digit wrong; I reckon the ID.4 will prove a bigger hit. The ID.3 is the electric equivalent of the latest Golf, but the ID.4 combines two huge...

Porsche Taycan Turbo review

Porsche’s Taycan was a project that had the potential for real pit-falls for the Stuttgart manufacturer. Electric vehicles have proven themselves as being seriously quick, and driving ranges are more than enough for most drivers. Recharging times are simply...

Polestar 2 Long Range Dual Motor review

Polestar might not be a familiar name for some, but the public should certainly take note. Volvo’s electrified performance brand has seen its second model - and first pure-EV - the Polestar 2 prove extremely popular. An expanding line-up means there are...
