The Kia e-Niro pulls off a trick many newer electric cars have failed to do: it's not just a fantastic electric car with a long range but it's also a good car overall. You get great practicality, excellent performance, a comfortable ride, tidy handling and reasonable levels of equipment. The e-Niro does all of that for a fairly sensible price if you go for the entry-level trim with the 64kWh long-range battery (the cheaper 39kWh version isn't as impressive).

This top-spec trim level adds a tilt and slide sunroof, LED headlights, a memory function for the driver’s seat and door mirrors, ventilated front seats, heated outer rear seats, ambient lighting, a punchy JBL stereo and extra safety kit such as blind spot monitoring. We still think 3 trim has enough luxuries and offers the best value for money.

This is the biggest battery available and officially does 282 miles on a full charge, and in our Real Range testing managed an excellent 253 miles - better than a Tesla Model 3. The battery powers an electric motor with 201bhp, making the e-Niro feel rather nippy. In our trials it did 0-60mph run in just 6.5sec – that's hot hatch levels of performance.
