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...

Citroen e-C4 first drive

Citroen’s first proper foray into the electric vehicle market is with its new e-C4. Aimed at offering customers the choice between electric, petrol, or diesel without any compromise for the EV version, the e-C4 is launched alongside with the rest of the...

DS 3 Crossback E-Tense review

DS Automobiles is on a mission to electrify its fleet, and offers both a practical PHEV and a compact pure-EV - the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense covering the latter. Sharing a platform with other PSA Group EVs in the shape of Peugeot's e-208 and the Vauxhall Corsa-e,...

Peugeot e-208 review

As EVs get increasingly mainstream, it makes sense that familiar model names become available as pure-EV versions. It’s a key part of the transition to widespread electric sales, and something that the PSA Group - incorporating Peugeot, Vauxhall, Citroen,...

Seat Mii Electric review

Seat has made a huge change to its Mii line-up. It might look almost exactly the same as before but, as the saying goes, it’s what’s underneath that counts. And what’s underneath here is an electric powertrain. Seat has binned the petrol-powered Mii...

Mini Electric review

The combination of a Mini's famous driving dynamics and an electric powertrain has long been an exciting one. It seems as though Mini agreed, since they've put the two together to create the sensibly -named Mini Electric. The popular supermini doesn't have...

Honda e first drive

The Honda e is a key car for the Japanese firm. Pitched as a premium product, and not engaging in the race for EV range that many others have, it's an intriguing prospect for EV buyers. Instead of headline-making driving range, the e focuses on its suitability...

Volvo XC40 T5 Twin Engine review

Volvo's XC40 is a very good car. The compact premium SUV has quickly become a firm favourite, with a combination of style and space bringing the buyers in for Volvo. Now there's a plug-in hybrid version, which has the potential to take what is a very good...
