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. 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. Reliability isn’t necessarily its forte and you will have to pay a monthly lease rate for the batteries, but few electric cars go further on a charge.
Or you could go for an electric car with much more radical styling in the BMW i3. It’s also made from carbonfibre, which makes it much lighter than most electric cars and pays dividends in terms of outright acceleration.
