What alternatives should I consider to a used Smart ForFour EQ hatchback?

The Volkswagen e-Up is one such rival that manages to maximise interior space while being compact on the outside. It’s also much better to drive than the Smart.

The Renault Zoe also seats four and has five doors. It’s nicer to drive than the Smart, too, if not quite as handy in town, and it has a longer range. Like the Smart, expect low running costs.
