Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen e-Golf hatchback?

The Nissan Leaf has been a really big influencer in the world of electric cars and there are plenty of examples available on the used market, both of the earlier and cheaper first-generation car and the more refined second-gen model. We'd go for the facelifted model, though, for its increased range.

If you want lots of range for not a lot of money, the Renault Zoe is a great buy, with prices starting from just £6000 for the earlier cars. Reliability isn’t necessarily its forte and with some of the earlier models you will have to pay a monthly lease rate for the batteries, but few electric cars go farther on a charge.

Overview

Thanks to its comfortable ride, interior space and decent equipment levels the Volkswagen e-Golf is one of the best used electric cars you can buy

  • Great to drive
  • Well equipped
  • Spacious interior
  • Some other electric cars offer greater range
  • Smaller boot than standard Golf
  • Heat pump not standard
