The e-Niro was the first electric car to win our overall Car of the Year title back in 2019. Why? Well it seemed the e-Niro's combination of excellent real-world range (253 miles between charges) and reasonably low cost meant that electric motoring made it relevant to a lot of people – and that's worth celebrating. Sure, you'll have to wait a while to take delivery of one, such is demand, but we still think the e-Niro is a cracking electric car.
Having already produced an award-winning electric car with the e-Niro, could lightning strike twice for Kia? Well, first impressions are positive, since the Soul EV uses the same electric motor and running gear as the e-Niro, but also promises more space inside. There's a lot still to be confirmed about the Soul's offering in the UK, including which of the two battery options will be sold here, but we already like its driving position and the amount of kit it comes with. Its boot is still relatively small, though.
The ZS EV from MG aims to solve one of the remaining problems with electric cars – that even though they can cost a pittance to run, they often cost a pretty penny to buy in the first place. Not so with the ZS EV, which is priced well below rivals. Don't think cheapness is the only string to its bow, though, because the ZS EV also has a big boot, lots of room for passengers and comes well equipped.
The EQC puts in a strong showing in terms of real-world range, covering 208 miles between charges on our tests. We've also been impressed by its quiet driving manners, its comfortable ride on the motorway and its infotainment system, which is easy to get along with. The Audi E-tron is ultimately more practical, and the Jaguar I-Pace is more fun to drive, but the EQC is a solid effort if you want to maximise the tranquility afforded by going electric.
A former winner of the electric car class, the Nissan Leaf offers punchy performance and decent range, as well as a big boot. Go for an N-Connecta model and you get plenty of kit, too, including adaptive cruise control, heated front seats and keyless entry.
