If you’re after a relatively good electric range and enough room for a family from your electric car at a low price, the MG 5 is a temptingly well equipped option. It’s comfy, quiet at speed and has punchy acceleration. The lack of safety kit disappoints, though, so it's worth spending a little extra on the MG ZS EV that is even more spacious. If you can live with a smaller car and have more to spend, the Fiat 500, Peugeot e-208 and Renault Zoe are better options.get the best price

Entry-level Excite trim is generously equipped, with keyless start, 16in alloy wheels, front and rear electric windows, cruise control, automatic lights, an 8.0in infotainment touchscreen, a DAB radio, sat-nav, four USB ports, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, air-con and an automatic electric parking brake. It's our pick of the range.

You get a 52.5kWh battery pack (the useable size is 48.8kWh for those that are interested) that’s good for an official WLTP combined range of 214 miles and can be charged in as little as 40min (0-80%) from a 100kW charged. The Kona Electric and ID.3 are both quicker, but with 154bhp from its electric motor, the 5 takes a very respectable 7.7sec to blast from 0-62mph; that’s a couple of seconds up on the Peugeot e-2008 and Renault Zoe.
