Electric car reviews

Volvo C40 review

Volvo’s second pure-EV to arrive is this C40. Based on the same platform as the XC40, unlike the conventional SUV, the C40 coupe-SUV is offered only as a pure-electric model. With coupe-inspired SUVs and electric vehicles selling fast, it’s likely the...

Kia e-Niro review

The Kia e-Niro was launched in 2019, but has received a refresh, boosting kit on what is already a class-leading electric family SUV. New grades, a few styling tweaks, and added charging options make the e-Niro line-up broader than ever. Review by Chris...

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...

Volkswagen’s ID.3 has quickly become a key model for the firm, and the line-up has been expanded from the initial offering to now include various battery and power options. Top of the tree is this ID.3 Tour S Pro, providing the longest driving range in...

MG ZS EV 44.5 kWh review

MG is one of the fastest growing manufacturers in the UK, and much of that growth is down to the strength of its electric vehicle options. A PHEV and two pure-EVs represent a significant plug-in selection for a four-car line-up, and the MG ZS EV is the cornerstone...

Mercedes-Benz EQB first drive

There aren’t a lot of seven-seat options for those looking to go electric. Mostly they tend to be van-based models from Vauxhall/Citroen/Peugeot, and Mercedes-Benz. There’s also Tesla’s Model X… and that’s about it. Mercedes has thrown another...

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...
