Best electric car discounts: every EV Target Price revealed

Despite the popularity of electric vehicles, discounts of up to £9853 are available. Here we run down our latest savings for every fully electric car currently on sale...

Best electric car deals

Electric car discounts have traditionally been hard to come by, but as choice widens and manufacturers have to battle for business – as well as hit emissions targets that leave those who fall short with hefty fines – prices are coming down.

Our team of Target Price mystery shoppers have been tracking the electric vehicle (EV) market and have compiled the latest discount data. Target Price is the most our team of mystery shoppers think you should pay for a new, factory-ordered car based on their everyday haggling.

Dealers using our system are encouraged to match or beat Target Price – and if they don't we'll highlight it to them and you, and if necessary do all we can to find you one that will.

Discounts run to thousands of pounds for some cars, although others – most notably the highly-desirable Audi, Porsche and Tesla models – are currently not being discounted because demand for these remains greater than supply.

The Government’s Plug-in Car Grant, which will pay for a maximum of 35% of the purchase price of the vehicle, up to £2500, for EV buyers, is available in addition to the saving listed here on cars costing less than £35,000.
