The MX-30’s relatively affordable, well equipped, comes with a smart interior and a pleasing ride and handling balance. However, its battery range is terrible and its performance is tardy, but if all you need is an electric car for pottering around town that shouldn’t be a big issue. But it’s a sizeable car on the outside, so it won’t be as easy to park as a city car like the Honda E, although it’s back seats are almost as impractical. So for a proper range, sparkling performance and family friendly practicality, we’d strongly suggest you spend a little bit more on the Kia e-Niro.get the best price

Our favourite trim helps retain an MX-30 virtue – low cash price for an EV – while still providing plenty of kit, including an 8.8in infotainment screen, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, a head-up display, climate control, adaptive cruise control LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, 18in wheels, power-folding door mirrors, auto lights and wipers and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

The only option is a 36kWh battery powering an electric motor, which offers tepid acceleration (0-62mph in 9.7sec) and one of the worst battery ranges of any current EV: 124 miles (WLTP). A range extender – with a small petrol engine that charges up the battery as you go along – will join the line-up soon.
