Peugeot e-208 Active
Target Price (cost per month) £373 Target Price (on the road) £28,296 The deal Four years' PCP finance with 5% APR
The Peugeot e-208 is a great choice if you want a small electric car that looks like it came straight from the 22nd century, but the good news is that this little Peugeot has the substance to back up its styling. This includes a smart, well-built interior, a good standard of safety kit and a range that should suit most people's needs. A firm ride spoils things a little, though.
Peugeot e-2008 Active Premium
Target Price (cost per month) £370 Target Price (on the road) £31,073 The deal Four years' PCP finance with 5% APR and £550 finance contribution
If you like the idea of an electric Peugeot, but need more space than the e-208 above can provide, then the good news is that its larger SUV sibling, the e-2008, is even cheaper on a PCP finance deal. As well as a wonderful, well-built interior, the e-2008 impresses with its impressively quiet driving manners and its family friendly practicality. Rivals have a longer real-world range, though.
Hyundai Kona Electric SE
Target Price (cost per month) £355 Target Price (on the road) £31,489 The deal Four years' PCP finance with 4.9% APR
The Kona Electric is an electric SUV that offers super performance and an exceptionally long range yet is also reasonably priced. Add in that it also offers a great driving position and reasonable practicality and the Kona Electric is very easy to recommend. If you're not quite ready to go electric, then there are petrol and hybrid versions of the Kona, too.
