Electric car reviews

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...

Volkswagen ID.3 1st Edition review

There are few models launched that have as much riding on them as Volkswagen’s ID.3. The pure-electric hatchback has been billed by the Wolfsburg-firm itself as the beginning of its third main chapter. The other two? They would be the Beetle and Golf....

Vauxhall Corsa-e review

When a model as popular as the Vauxhall Corsa gets an electric version, it’s a sure sign of a change in the automotive industry. To give credit where its due too, Vauxhall seems to be pitching the Corsa-e just as vigorously as its conventionally-powered...

Mercedes Benz EQV first drive

Mercedes Benz is in the early stages of a huge electric vehicle offensive, and following in the tyre prints of the EQC SUV comes the EQV MPV. Based on the V-Class people-carrier, this all-electric model boasts plenty of space, a long range, and ultra-rapid...

Citroen Ami first drive

I should open this review with a spoiler - the Citroen Ami is a fairly useless car. But then it’s not technically a car - it’s a quadricycle - and judging it by normal ‘car’ standards would be unfair. Instead, the Citroen Ami is intended as an urban...
