Kia e-Niro first drive

Kia's new e-Niro is coming to the UK in spring 2019, but Next Green Car was invited along to South Korea to get an early drive of the important new crossover EV. Despite being tested on South Korean roads, the cars themselves were UK spec, so it's as good...

Jaguar I-Pace first drive

Jaguar's I-Pace was one of the most highly anticipated cars of 2018. Promising a long electric range with the quality and driving dynamics characteristic of Jaguar, the I-Pace promised much for those interested in cars - EV or otherwise. NGC has had the...

Lexus CT 200h review

Any premium manufacturer worth its salt needs to have a hatchback in its range, and it Lexus' case, it's the CT 200h. It's different from the rest of its competitors, since it's only available with a hybrid powertrain. Now revised for 2018, NGC takes the...

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...

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...
