What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW i3 hatchback?

The Nissan Leaf comes without the premium badge, but is not without its charms. It’s easy to drive, cheap to run and comfortable to travel in. There’s plenty of room for the family, too. Against that are the usual problems associated with some EVs – it’s range isn’t great, it takes a long time to charge and its range drops considerably in colder weather.

The Volkswagen e-Golf is much more conventional in design than the i3, but it is one of the best electric cars on sale, thanks to its competitive range, decent equipment and its excellent interior space and driving dynamics. Although some rivals are cheaper, and some offer a longer range, the Golf’s superior driving abilities and neat interior make it a winner.
