Electric car reviews

Toyota Proace Electric first drive

There have been a large number of new electric vehicles launched in the last year or so, with many manufacturers new to the market. Toyota is now one of them. Having previously offered a wide selection of hybrid models and a couple of PHEVs, the Japanese...

Fiat 500 first drive

There are few truly iconic models in the automotive industry, but it’s safe to say that the Fiat 500 is one of them. Not only did the original 1957 Cinquecento play a big part in mobilising Italy, it also spawned the modernised and hugely popular model,...

MG5 EV review

One of the key complaints for those looking at electric vehicles is there’s a lack of estates available - at any price, let alone mass-market costs. Well MG has the answer, with the MG5 EV. It’s a mid-sized estate with a good driving range and excellent...

Renault Zoe Z.E. 50 review

Renault’s Zoe is one of Europe’s most popular electric cars - and for good reason. The compact Renault has long boasted a good range for its class, and has been subject to a raft of updates throughout its lifetime. The current version is Renault’s...

Mercedes Benz EQC review

As the first model from Mercedes Benz’s EQ electric sub-brand, there’s a lot riding on the EQC as it sets the tone for a fleet of EVs due in the future. The all-electric SUV boasts a stylish exterior, spacious interior, and good range, but what’s it...

Mazda MX-30 first drive

As Mazda’s first EV to arrive in the UK, the MX-30 has a lot riding on it. The compact EV ticks plenty of boxes, though with a relatively short range, it’s not going to be for everyone. As part of a new wave of smaller, shorter-range EVs with a focus...

Kia Soul EV First Edition review

Kia’s second generation Soul EV is a striking car to look at, and fortunately Kia has packed in a powertrain to back up the looks. The company’s tried and tested 64 kWh battery and 150 kW motor - as found in the e-Niro - can be found in the Soul EV,...

Hyundai Ioniq Electric review

Hyundai’s Ioniq Electric is one of those EVs that few have heard of, but it’s a shame that that’s the case. The family hatchback is a very good car, competing with and beating its main rival – the more famous Nissan Leaf – in a number of areas....

Vauxhall Mokka-e first drive

Vauxhall is getting serious with its Mokka. The compact crossover was a model that had largely been left behind by the competition, but this new model looks to change all that. Not only does it feature Vauxhall’s stylish new design language, it’s also...

Volkswagen e-up! review

VW’s e-up! used to offer a short electric driving range for a fair chunk of money, really suiting only those that wanted an EV for urban driving. ‘Used to’ are the key words here. There’s a new e-up! (though you’d be hard pushed to tell) that changes...
