Range Rover Sport P400e first drive

Land Rover isn't a brand immediately synonymous with green motoring. Granted, there was an all-electric Defender prototype a few years ago, but essentially buyers tend to think of the brand as either luxurious - with Range Rover in mind - or as providing...

Nissan Leaf review

The Nissan Leaf is a hugely important model for the electric car market. Having tested it on the car's UK launch in Scotland earlier this year, we've now had the chance to drive the Leaf for a week to get further into the minutiae of its capabilities. Having...

BMW i3s REX review

Having really liked the BMW i3, I was looking forward to testing the i3s as soon as it had been booked in. Featuring everything good about BMW's compact EV, but with a little more focus on a sharper driving experience, the i3s looked - on paper at least...

BMW 330e review

BMW's 3 Series is one of the best cars in its class, so there is plenty of promise for the iPerformance PHEV model. BMW's expertise with electric vehicles has seen it claim a fair amount of the market, and it has plug-in models across a large number of its...

Audi A8 50 TDI quattro review

The A8 is Audi's flagship model, intended to show what the German marque can do on the principles of 'Vorsprung durch Technik'. As such, the new A8 is a technological tour de force, with advanced equipment both on display and making everything tick beneath...

Renault Twingo TCe 90 review

The Twingo badge has something of a cult following, stemming in part from the original model which never made it to these shores in right-hand drive. The following generation did and reinforced Renault's citycar offering as a fun to drive and characterful...

Hyundai Ioniq Electric review

Having been impressed with the Hyundai Ioniq Electric at its UK launch, Next Green Car has had the chance to spend more time with the electric family hatch, to really see what it's like to live with. Since a number of its rivals have upped their game since...

LEVC TX review

Y'right guv'ner, where to? Nah, not goin' saaf th'river at this time a noit. Right; got that out of my system now, so thanks for bearing with me. Putting the stereotypical (and likely non-existent) London cabbie behind us, we can now get on with the business...

Hyundai IONIQ Plug-In review

Hyundai's IONIQ is a versatile model, that takes on a range of different rivals depending on its powertrain. The only model available in the three core states of electrification - electric, hybrid, and plug-in hybrid - it is the latter tested here. The IONIQ...
