Biggest electric car discounts
Electric cars have never been more popular; in fact, they're the only type of new car that's selling in greater numbers than ever at the moment. However, don't think that means you'll have to pay full price if you want one.
Our team of mystery shoppers are always researching how much you should pay. And here we count down the 10 biggest discounts they've managed to haggle on electric cars this week.
Prices don't include the Government's £3000 plug-in car grant, which will further reduce the cost of models priced at less than £50,000.
10. Vauxhall Corsa-
9. BMW i3
Model 135kW S 42kWh [Suite Interior World] List price £40,555 Target Price £39,366
Despite being six years old now, the i3 still looks futuristic. And this deal is for the S version, which travelled 165 miles between charges in our Real Range test – 44 miles farther than the standard car.
8. Smart Forfour EQ
Model 60kW Prime Exclusive 17kWh [22kWch] List price £23,085 Target Price £21,494
The Forfour EQ is one of the cheapest electric cars on sale today – particularly after you've factored in our Target Price discount. Just bear in mind that the boot and range are tiny.
7. Hyundai Kona Electric
Model 150kW Premium SE 64kWh [11kW Charger] List price £41,250 Target Price £39,569
Hyundai's Kona Electric has the longest real-world range of any electric car we've tested: 259 miles. What's more, it's properly quick and comes very well equipped.
6. Nissan Leaf
Model 160kW e+ Tekna 62kWh List price £39,395 Target Price £36,926
This e+ version of the Leaf may have a bigger range, but we actually prefer the standard car, because it's significantly cheaper to buy (even though discounts aren't quite as big) and has a smoother ride.
5. Audi E-tron Sportback
Save £2599 by calling 03302 216207
Model 300kW 55 quattro 95kWh Launch Edition [C+S] List price £87,350 Target Price £84,751
Audi's E-tron Sportback feels beautifully built and is incredibly quiet at all speeds, although its plunging roofline does mean rear head room is tight for six-footers.
4. Renault Zoe
Model 100KW i GT Line R135 50KWh Rapid Charge List price £33,695 Target Price £31,045
The Zoe’s main strength is that it feels like a conventional small car, and just happens to cost pennies to run. Performance is lively and the interior has enough room for four to sit in comfort.
3. Smart Fortwo EQ
Model 60kW Edition Nightsky 17.6kWh 22kWch Cabrio List price £27,135 Target Price £24,393
You can travel slightly farther between charges in the Fortwo than the Forfour, and its tiny dimensions are welcome in town. But range anxiety is likely to be a problem elsewhere.
2. Jaguar I-Pace
Model 90kWh EV400 HSE List price £74,995 Target Price £71,460
Back in 2018, the I-Pace won the What Car? Reader Award for most anticipated new car, and it hasn't disappointed since, mixing show-stopping looks with space for four adults, a Real Range of 253 miles and entertaining handling.
1. Audi E-tron
Model 300kW 55 Quattro 95kWh Launch Ed [C+S] List price £83,760 Target Price £79,400
The regular E-tron has all of the strengths of the Sportback model we looked at earlier, plus more rear head room. Its Real Range is 196 miles.
