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...

Seat Leon e-Hybrid FR review

The first plug-in hybrid from Seat comes in the shape of its latest Leon hatchback. The model shares much of its underpinnings and powertrain with the VW Golf GTE, but with Seat’s stamp on things. The Leon has proven a popular and characterful family car...

Kia Sorento PHEV first drive

There’s been plenty changing at Kia, and electrification is at the heart of this shift for the Korean manufacturer. A new logo will arrive on the bonnet of a car - branding elsewhere has already changed - with the company’s first dedicated, pure-electric...

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 Passat GTE Estate review

Volkswagen’s Passat GTE is the company’s answer to a frequently asked question. Are there any practical, family-sized plug-in cars on the market? The PHEV Passat sits in VW’s usual spot, between mass-market and premium models, and offers lots of practicality...

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....
