The Renault Zoe is great value, decent to drive and has a long range between charges,. We reckon the range-topping R135 GT Line is the pick of the range, although the R110 Iconic is well worth a look – especially if you mostly drive in town.

It comes with the 7.0in infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring as standard, plus a DAB radio and two USB sockets. Driving tech includes cruise control, although you have to do without some important safety kit, including automatic emergency braking.
