Biggest electric car discounts

Audi E-tron with Jaguar I-Pace and Renault Zoe with MG ZS EV

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.

Best of all, the Target Price they've set for each model is the maximum you'll pay if you use our New Car Buying service; you could potentially save even more. All you have to do is follow the links.

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.

Model 100kW Elite Nav 50kWh List price £34,160 Target Price £32,991

The electric Corsa isn't as flashy inside as the closely related Peugeot e-208, but it feels slightly sharper to drive and is available with bigger discounts.

6. Nissan Leaf

Save £2469 >>

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.

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

Save £2650 >>

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.

Save £2742 >>

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.
