Provided you don’t frequently need to venture too far away from a charging point, the Mini Countryman Electric makes a good case as an upmarket family SUV that you can plug in.

Sport trim combines the looks of the sporty JCW model with the running costs and performance of the lesser C or S versions. We reckon Exclusive makes more sense, though.

The 168bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine in this model can feel slightly hesitant when you're setting off from a standstill, but it's punchy enough on the move and impressively refined despite having only three cylinders; you just hear a distant thrummy note. It's therefore the one we'd choose.
