The best and worst electric cars
Electric cars are growing in popularity, and no wonder: the best are quiet, cheap to run and smooth to drive. But which are the bright sparks to consider – and which are the loose connections?...
1. Tesla Model 3
Few cars received as much hype before their launch as the Tesla Model 3, and even fewer can match that hype. Tesla's most affordable car yet did just that, though, by being great to drive, packed full of tech, fast (ridiculously so in Performance guise) and surprisingly practical, too. Factor in a competitive price, especially given its sheer pace, and it’s not only a great electric car but one of the best executive cars you can buy, too.
And the electric car to avoid...
Smart Forfour EQ
Although the Forfour EQ is relatively cheap to buy, you could get a Renault Zoe for similar money and and the latter offers more space and more than double the range between charges.
