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

The Renault Zoe is larger than the e-Up, and it shows in interior and boot space. It also has a much longer claimed range. It’s good to drive, too, and quiet and comfortable inside.

The Hyundai Ioniq is available in three distinct power sources: petrol-electric hybrid, plug-in petrol-electric hybrid and pure electric. It’s larger again than the e-Up and the Zoe, with plenty of space inside. In electric variety, it’s quick off the line, easy to drive and well equipped inside.
