The latest issue of What Car? is out now, and it's an electric car special, with verdicts on every EV currently on sale and previews of all the upcoming models worth waiting for.

We've also pitted the new Hyundai Kona Electric against our reigning Electric Car of the Year, the Nissan Leaf. And there's an electric car jargon buster, so you'll soon know your Type 1 plug from your Chadaemo, and the difference between kWh and Ah.

Elsewhere, Peugeot's new 508 takes on the Mazda 6 and Skoda Superb for executive car honours, and there's a pick-up truck mega test.

Meanwhile, other new cars driven this month include:

  • Audi A6 Avant
  • Cupra Ateca
  • Honda Civic 4 Door
  • Kia e-Niro
  • 2019 Mazda CX-3
  • 2019 Nissan Qashqai

It all leads into our Buyer's Guide, where we name the best cars in every class and for every budget. Plus, we've picked out some of the best Target Price deals from What Car?'s online New Car Buying service, with these potentially saving you thousands of pounds.

This month's advice section reveals the major downside of the latest high-intensity discharge and xenon headlights.

Plus, as always, #AskWhatCar answers your motoring questions, our data section is on hand to help you choose the best new car for your needs and our True MPG tests tell you what fuel economy you can really expect from that car.

Indeed, our redesigned format makes What Car? magazine more useful than ever, whether you're choosing your next car, looking to reduce your motoring bills or simply want to keep up to date with the latest issues facing drivers.

The number of adverts has been slashed, letting us dedicate more space to comparison tests. We've also reintroduced long-term car ownership reviews and an expanded consumer section, more used car buying guides and extra data.
