The cheapest electric cars on a PCP finance deal
Think all electric cars are expensive? If you buy on a PCP finance deal, that doesn't have to be the case; we've found electric cars from as little as £316 per month...
Electric cars now suit more people than ever before, and slowly but surely old barriers to ownership, such as range, price and charging infrastructure, are falling down. Indeed, at the most recent What Car? Awards we gave our top honour to an electric car – the Kia e-Niro SUV – for the first time.
Thanks to our Target Price PCP discounts, too, buying an electric car need not be hideously expensive. Target Price PCP is unique to What Car? and is the most we think you should look to pay on a monthly finance deal. It's generated from our team of mystery shoppers, who spend all day talking to dealers and finding out how low they'll go.
In this story, we've collected the cheapest electric cars available on a PCP finance deal, with the cheapest costing you just £316 per month. Our picks come in all shapes and sizes, too, ranging from city runabouts to posh SUVs. If you're interested in any of the cars listed here, either click on the review links to learn more about them, or head over to What Car? New Car Buying to see how much we can save you. All of our PCP prices are worked out based on a 10,000-mile annual limit and you putting down a 15% deposit.
Jaguar I-Pace EV400 S
Target Price (cost per month) £855 Target Price (on the road) £72,045 The deal Three years' PCP finance with 5.9% APR
The I-Pace is Jaguar's first electric car and a rival for luxury SUVs such as the Audi E-tron and Tesla Model X. It's powered by two electric motors producing a combined 394bhp, and its 90kWh battery pack allows for an official driving range of 292 miles. When we put the I-Pace through our Real Range test – which shows what you're likely to achieve in real-world conditions – that number fell to a still respectable 253 miles.
Audi E-tron 55 quattro
Target Price (cost per month) £850 Target Price (on the road) £80,193 The deal Three years' PCP finance with 5.9% APR
The E-tron has a larger battery pack than the I-Pace above – 95kWh vs 90kWh – but despite having an official range of 248 miles, the E-tron managed a less impressive 196 miles in our Real Range test. Still, that should be enough for most people, and the E-tron has a number of other positives up its sleeve. The interior, for example, is both luxurious and spacious, while the big Audi's standard air suspension does a good job of wafting you along a twisty country road.
