EVs are coming thick and fast, with majority of mainstream manufacturers now having at least one shiny all-electric vehicle in its line-up.

This trend is only set to continue, with an innumerable amount of new models set to launch over the next few years

a to z lead copy

We’ve put together a handy A to Z including all the key EVs currently available to lease – along with a few that are just around the corner too.

We’ve also included a bit of info on each model.

What EVs can I get right now?

Abarth

Abarth is the sporty cousin of Fiat, and as such has traditionally offered peppy petrol-engined superminis and sports cars. But now it’s going electric, and lease deals on its latest 500 are available right now.

Available now: Abarth 500 Electric

NewAbarth500e(2)

Abarth has produced sporty versions of the baby Fiat for years, and it appears that the new all-electric model is no exception. With 150hp, it’s significantly up on power compared with the little Fiat.

As you’d expect, it gets Abarth’s usual plethora of styling, with a more aggressive look all round. 0-62mph takes seven seconds and, with a convertible also on offer, we’re struggling to think of a more fun city EV available right now.

Audi

Audi is part of the huge Volkswagen Group. This means it’s been ahead of most manufacturers when it comes to electrification plans and appears to have a well thought out strategy in terms of model launches.

There are already a handful available, and there’s at least 14 other pure electric vehicles set to launch by 2025.

Available now: Audi Q8 e-tron

Audi Q8 e-tron

The Audi e-tron was the brand’s first step to electrification, and has essentially been replaced by the most recent Q8 e-tron.  It features some innovative tech such as those door cameras in place of mirrors.

Its SUV proportions have also ensured it’s a really popular EV, and its 106kWh battery pack is enough to provide around 305 miles of range. All Q8 e-tron models feature rapid charging capabilities too.

Available now: Audi e-tron GT

Audi e-tron GT

Now available to lease, the Audi e-tron GT can be seen as an alternative to the Porsche Taycan. All models can muster more than 290 miles of range, while the RS (which is the first EV to bear this famous Audi nomenclature) can get from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds.

Available now: Audi Q4 e-tron

Audi Q4 e-tron

The Audi Q4 e-tron offers a little less practicality than the larger e-tron, but it offers a little more style. SUV coupes are all the rage, and the Q4 e-tron is one of the most advanced on offer. Even entry-level 35 models are capable of up to 217 miles between charges.

Coming soon: Audi A6 e-tron

The Audi A6 e-tron is set for a full reveal in 2022, with the car likely to hit the UK in early 2023. Featuring the same underpinnings and electric tech as the SUVs on this list, you can consider this the electric A6. That means it’ll take the form of a saloon and rival the likes of the Tesla Model S.

BMW

BMW has actually had an EV available for almost a decade in the shape of the i3. However, things slowed in more recently years. But that’s all set to change with the arrival of an all-new generation of electric models.

The iX3, iX and i4 are available to order now, with a number of other launches set for 2022 and 2023.

Available now: BMW iX1

P90461397_highRes_the-all-new-bmw-ix1-

The recently refreshed BMW X1 is now available in all-electric form, with iX1 deals on offer right now. Producing around 313hp, it gets a 76kWh battery capable of providing range of up to 272 miles.

Available now: BMW iX2

P90525202_highRes_the-first-ever-bmw-i

If you’re after something a little sportier looking than the iX1, the iX2 should fit the bill. It uses the same tech as the iX1 but wraps it up in a more coupe-like shape. It’s now available to lease, too.

Compare BMW iX2 lease deals

Available now: BMW iX3

BMW iX3

Is the i3 a little too individual for your taste? If you want a cutting-edge EV that doesn’t actually look like an EV, then the iX3 is the better choice. It’s essentially an all-electric version of the standard X3 crossover. Expect a range of 286 miles between charges, which can be charged via a rapid charger from 0% to 80% in around half an hour.

Available now: BMW iX

BMW iX

The radical BMW iX is the Bavarian answer to the Tesla Model X. Big, bold and extremely capable, it’s dimensionally similar to the X5. Unlike the X5, however, it gets either a 70kW or 100kW battery, with the latter offering up to 370 miles and around 500hp. All models are all-wheel drive, thanks to the pair of electric motors on each axle.

Available now: BMW i4

BMW i4

BMW sees its i4 as a direct rival to the Tesla Model 3. With up to 367 miles of range an an optional potent M50 variation, this is the kind of car that we imagine will replace the 320d as a company car of choice in the coming years. Like all BMW’s EVs, it gets the latest iDrive technology and an awesome cabin.

Compare BMW i4 lease deals

Available now: BMW i5

The latest 5 Series is available in all-electric guise: enter the BMW i5. Whether it’s the eDrive40 or the potent M60, both models offer in excess of 300 miles. It gets a stunning interior too, and of course the engaging platform that has made the 5 Series such an iconic model. It’s now available to order.

Compare BMW i5 lease deals

Available now: BMW i7

BMW i7

The new BMW 7 Series is now available to lease, and it’s the first generation of the luxury saloon to get an all-electric variant: enter the i7. From launch it’s available as the i7 xDrive 60, and is capable of up to 388 miles of range. This puts it on par or above many key competitors. Its 105kWh battery can also support super-quick charging too.

Compare BMW i7 lease deals

Coming soon: BMW i3 (electric 3 Series)

The i3 is due a replacement, and it’s likely that it’ll be more 3 Series-shaped than the current hatchback. Sources reckon it’ll get around 285 miles of range and be available with the same high-performance electric motors as the i4. We’ll bring you leasing plans as soon as they’re available.

BMW i5 Touring

BMW 5 Series Touring teaser

BMW has also confirmed that its i5 will be available in Touring form. This load lugger will be a rival to the Audi A6 e-tron when that eventually arrives, and could pave the way for further electric estates.

BYD

BYD is an all-new Chinese brand, and has arrived in the UK with its Atto 3. This good-looking EV has been designed to compete with the likes of Tesla, but offer much more affordable pricing. We’ll have to wait and see if any other BYD models make it to our shores.

Available now: BYD Atto 3

BYD Atto 3

Available to lease right now, the BYD Atto 3 features a 60.4kWh battery pack that can offer up to 261 miles of range. While that’s not as much as more premium brands, it is on par with rivals like the MG ZS and MG 4 (another Chinese brand).

It also features a fantastic interior, with a 12in floating infotainment system and tonnes of safety tech. Could this become the go-to family EV for 2023? Click on the button below to compare deals now.

Available now: BYD Dolphin

BYD Dolphin

The BYD Dolphin is now available in the UK, with lease plans on offer right now. Hot on the heels of the Atto 3, it’s the Chinese brand’s second vehicle to launch in Europe.

With an all-electric platform offering up to 265 miles of range, compare prices now by hitting the button below.

Available now: BYD Seal

BYDSEAL2023037

The BYD Seal is an electric saloon that’s now available to order. It’s more upmarket than the Dolphin and sleeker looking than the Atto 3. It offers around 350 miles of range and, in dual-motor form, up to 530hp. Could this be a Chinese Tesla Model 3 alternative?

Citroen

Remember the C-Zero? It was launched around the same time as the original Nissan Leaf. While that model might have not proved popular, the Stellantis-owned French brand is set to take full advantage of platform sharing in the coming years. Expect to see all-electric versions of its entire line-up by 2030 – with a quirky new model or two thrown in along the way.

Available now: Citroen e-C4

www.matthowell.co.uk 07740 583906

The Citroen e-C4 is the first all-electric Citroen since the C-Zero, and it’s a massive improvement. Comfortable in a way only a big French car can be, it’s capable of up to 217 miles according to official stats. 380 litres of boot space make it a practical proposition for families too.

Compare Citroen e-C4 lease deals

Available now: Citroen e-C4 X

Citroen e-C4 X

If you fancy a slightly larger version of the e-C4, you’re in luck: the e-C4 X is now available to lease. With 510 litres of boot space and up to 224 miles of range, it utilises the same tech as Peugeot’s latest 408.

Longer, larger and more practical, its low roofline extends downwards from the boot, allowing plenty of passenger space as well as that capacious boot.

Compare Citroen e-C4 X lease deals

Available now: Citroen Ami

Citroen Ami

Yes, that’s right – the very unique Citroen Ami is available to lease in the UK. With monthly costs starting from around the £150 mark, it might not offer the most bang for buck, but it's certainly a useful took. It does have its limitations: top speed is just 28mph, and range stands at under 50 miles. That said, it’s the perfect companion in urban situations. What do you think?

Compare Citroen Ami lease deals

Available now: Citroen e-Berlingo

www.matthowell.co.uk 07740 583906

The Citroen e-Berlingo is a practical beast of burden that’s ideal for large families and those after a dose of practicality. With about 130 miles of range, it might not be the best when it comes to range, but for school runs and those big tip trips, few EVs can beat it for outright cargo capacity.

Coming soon: Citroen e-C3

Heralded as a truly affordable EV, the Citroen e-C3 is due to launch in 2024. It’ll be the all-electric version of the brand’s small car, which has dumped supermini styling in favour of a more crossover-like look. We’ll bring you leasing plans as soon as they’re available.

Cupra

Cupra has had a successful few years on the back of its Ateca and Formentor SUVs. It’ll be hoping its electric cars will prove just as popular and, if the pictures are anything to go by, we’re sure they will. The main challenge for Cupra will be to create a sporty model with a unique feel from the electrified platforms it shares with its Volkswagen stablemates.

Available now: Cupra Born

Cupra Born

The Cupra Born shares a platform with the Volkswagen ID.3, but its looks, tech and drivetrains have been geared to make it sportier than the VW. The range-topping version uses a 77kWh battery pack, helping it get from 0-62mph in less than seven seconds. It gets up to 335 miles of range and features a rear-wheel drive platform. Better than the ID.3? For those after something a little spicier, we think so.

Compare Cupra Born lease deals

Coming soon: Cupra Tavascan

Cupra Tavascan

The Cupra Tavascan SUV was revealed in concept form back at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Since then, it’s been confirmed it’s headed for production. Or a very similar car is anyway. It’ll likely build on the styling seen on the Formentor and will likely get a drivetrain offering potent performance and more than 250 miles of range.

Dacia

Dacia’s success thus far has partly been down to the fact it keeps production costs down – that means that pure petrol and diesel remains the go-to for the moment, as electrified platforms cost money and will take a while to filter down from the more expensive Renaults on which they are based. However, there is on on the way.

Coming soon: Dacia Sprint Electric

Dacia Spring

This cute little crossover is set to launch in some European markets next year, but it is yet to be confirmed whether or not it’ll make it to the UK. Featuring a range of around 140 miles and a back-to-basics interior, it’s primarily aimed at developing markets. We’ll have to wait to find out whether the Spring is coming to the UK.

DS

DS – once an offshoot of Citroen – is now a brand owned by Stellantis. As such, it’s well placed in the race to electrification and you can expect it to share platforms with Citroens, Peugeots and Vauxhalls over the coming years. There’s already one EV available – the DS 3 Crossback.

Available now: DS 3 Crossback

DS3 Crossback E Tense

With between 190 and 206 miles of range, the DS 3 Crossback in E-Tense form is a great choice if you’re after a comfortable and capable electric car. It produces around 130hp, resulting in swift acceleration from 0-62mph in under nine seconds. Its looks won’t be for everyone though, but that’s not an issue – you can get the same drivetrain in a number of models from Citroen, Peugeot and Vauxhall.

Compare DS 3 Crossback E-Tense lease deals

Fiat

If you’re after a characterful electric vehicle, then you might want to consider a Fiat. Its ever-popular 500 is now electric-only, with larger 500-based EVs likely to make an appearance soon. There’s an equally quirky electric Panda set for launch in 2022, too.

Available now: Fiat 500

Fiat 500e

Despite its advanced electric drivetrain, the Fiat 500 has kept its cute city car looks and also boasts a range of innovative safety tech – including semi-autonomous driving aids. If you’re after a truly affordable EV, this could be the one for you. Monthly prices currently start from less than £200.

Compare Fiat 500e lease deals

Available now: Fiat 600

Fiat 600 front in Rome

The Fiat 600 is the practical, more grown-up five-door SUV of the iconic 500 city car. It actually sits on the same platform as the excellent Jeep Avenger, while managing to keep the cute looks of the smaller 500 EV.

Compare Fiat 600 lease deals

Coming soon: Fiat Centoventi / Panda

Fiat Centoventi

Set to offer an equally affordable but more practical model than the 500e, the new Panda (Centoventi) will get an electric drivetrain. We’ve only seen it in concept form at the moment, but we’ll be able to confirm further details in the coming months.

Fisker

Available now: Fisker Ocean

Fisker Ocean lead

We’ve been waiting a long time for the Fisker Ocean in the UK, and it’s finally available to lease. This all-American EV is designed to take on Tesla and is capable of more than 400 miles between charges. With stand-out styling and sustainable materials used throughout its construction, could this be a market winner in 2024?

Ford

Ford might seem like it’s behind rivals when it comes to EVs, but earlier this year it confirmed that all European models sold by 2026 will be “zero-emissions capable”. For now, just one model is on offer – but what a model the Tesla-beating Mustang Mach-E is!

Available now: Ford Mustang Mach-E

2021_FORD_MACH-E_GT_03

We’ve waited a long time to see a fully electric Ford, and the Mustang Mach-E doesn’t disappoint. Able to rival Tesla in pretty much every sense, some people might not like the fact it shares its name with the iconic muscle car.

But that’s the only similarity with the two-door: this 4.7-metre SUV is powered by an electric drivetrain that produces anything between 260hp and 470hp depending on the variant in question. With more than 350 miles of range and a huge tablet-style infotainment system, it’s one of our favourite EVs to date.

Compare Ford Mustang Mach-E lease deals

Coming soon: Ford Explorer

Ford Explorer EV lead

Ford’s all-electric Explorer is now set to arrive later in 2024. Borrowing some of its parts from the Volkswagen ID.4, it’s been designed specifically with European markets in mind and up to 300 miles of range should be offered. It gets the same snazzy touchscreen as the Mach E too.

Genesis

Genesis is a new entry to the UK market and is essentially the upmarket premium badge of the group that owns Korean titans Hyundai and Kia. As such, it’s got a great basis to launch its EVs on – namely the expertise that has led to cars like the Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6.

Available now: Genesis GV60

Genesis GV60

While other Genesis vehicles are available with electric drivetrains, the GV60 is the brand’s first ground-up EV and takes the form of a low-slung SUV. The looks are certainly different, and it uses the same basic battery packs you’ll find in the Kia EV6. That means an impressive range of 280 miles is on offer, while power varies between 225hp and 435hp.

Compare Genesis GV60 lease deals

Available now: Genesis GV70

584239

The GV70 isn’t as slick as the GV60, but it’s certainly more practical. It borrows its styling cues from Genesis’ line of saloons. Competitors include the BMW X3 and Land Rover Discovery Sport. If you’re after a premium EV that stands out from the crowd, then this could be it. It is capable of an impressive 283 miles – around the same as the GV60.

Honda

Honda has gone big on hybrid platforms in recent years, but to date only has one all-electric model – the Honda E. This is likely to change drastically in the next years or two though, but Honda committed to 100% of European sales to be electric in the future.

Available now: Honda e

Honda E

Quirky it may be, but not everyone is a fan of the Honda E’s looks. It harks back to the tiny Civic hatches of the 70s, but that’s where the similarities end. Its high-tech interior complements its electric drivetrain perfectly. Our only complaint is the official range of just 125 miles – but it is a city car after all.

Compare Honda E lease deals

Available now: Honda e:Ny1

The e:Ny1 is now available to lease, and is the second fully electric Honda to be offered in the UK. Built in China, this model gets up to 256 miles of range and offers a practical, small crossover-like body style.

Hyundai

The current line-up of Hyundai EVs really shows how far the Korean brand has come in recent years. Its Ioniq and Kona electric models were impressive back when they launched, and they still make sense today. But it’s the Ioniq 5 that’s stealing the show – a true Tesla competitor. Expect more great things soon.

Available now: Hyundai Ioniq

Hyundai Ioniq

The Hyundai Ioniq has been a go-to vehicle for those looking for a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or full electric vehicle for a number of years now. With the Electric Premium SE model capable of up to 193 miles and leasing plans starting from less than £250, it’s one of the most practical family EVs. However, it’s showing its age a little compared to Hyundai’s other electric products.

Available now: Hyundai Kona

Hyundai Kona Electric

The Kona Electric can be considered a step up compared to the regular Ioniq. For starters, it’s a crossover rather than a slightly awkward looking hatchback. Secondly, it’s available in two forms: a 39kWh model capable of around 190 miles and a 64kWh model that ups this to 279 miles. The latter is also compatible with 100kW charging too, allowing you to charge the battery from 0% to 80% in under an hour.

Available now: Hyundai Ioniq 5

Hyundai Ioniq 5

The Ioniq 5 is one of Hyundai’s next generation of EVs. Don’t let the blend of retro style fool you; it’s as futuristic as things get. The interior is full of tech, featuring two large screens and touch-sensitive controls. Underneath, the Ioniq 5 is available with either a 58kWh or 72kWh battery, with the potent variant also available with all-wheel drive.

The 72kWh model can muster up to 298 miles of range, putting the Ioniq 5 firmly in the “Model 3 alternative” camp. Combined with its DC fast charging capability of up to 350kW, it’s one of the most advanced mainstream EVs ever, and it’s available to lease right now.

The Ioniq 6 is a streamlined hatchback, and it made its debut earlier this year. It might look different to the Ioniq 5, but under the skin it borrows all the tech that makes its SUV-sibling such a success. It’s available to lease right now, and is already proving a popular choice on Leasing.com.

Jaguar

It’s hard to believe the I-Pace is two years old already – it’s still one of the best-looking EVs available in our opinion and remains competitive against other vehicles. As far as other electric models go, plans for the XJ EV have been shelved for now, but Jaguar is aiming to become the first “all-electric” luxury brand by 2025.

Available now: Jaguar I-Pace

HyperFocal: 0

The Jaguar I-Pace remains a desirable EV. It’s hard to believe it’s been on the market two years already, and its range of 292 miles ensures it remains competitive in the face of numerous upcoming models from rivals. It’s also a seriously impressive electric vehicle to drive, featuring a sub five-second 0-62mph time.

Compare Jaguar I-Pace lease deals

Coming soon: Compact EV by 2025

Despite the scuppered plans for an all-electric XJ, Jaguar has confirmed it plans to launch three compact electric models by 2025. These are likely to be replacements for the XE, XF and potentially even the F-Type sportscar.

Jeep

Now part of Stellantis, Jeep is forging ahead with electrification plans in Europe, and its first all-electric vehicle is now available to lease. Expect more to hit the road in the coming years.

Available now: Jeep Avenger

Jeep Avenger front

The all-new Avenger is now available to order, and is capable of up to 248 miles between charges according to WLTP figures. It gets a fresh look, and ushers in a new era of styling for the America brand.

Using a rapid 100kW charger, you can regain an 80% charge in less than half an hour. Single and dual electric motors are offered, allowing for both two and four-wheel drive models. All motors produce 120hp.

KGM

Another new EV brand? Well, not quite. KGM is actually how Ssangyong is now known following a major rebrand and shake up of its range. The Torres is available in electric form, with the EVX available right now. Expect more electrified models from this Korean brand soon.

Along with Hyundai, Korean counterpart Kia has also knocked it out the bag with its recent EVs. Already known for the impressive e-Niro, the stunning EV6 is now available – with other impressive electric vehicles set to follow in the coming years.

Available now: Kia e-Niro

Kia e-Niro

The Kia e-Niro name might have been around a while now, but a recent revamp saw it receive a bigger battery,upping maximum range to 280 miles. The styling was refreshed too and, while it won’t be to everyone’s taste, it remains a competitive EV in the compact crossover segment.

Like the sound of the Ioniq 5 but want something a little sportier? You might want to take a look at the Kia EV6. This new model sits on the same platform as the Hyundai, but a number of tweaks make it a more engaging driving. It’s also available with a larger battery pack that not only gives it the edge performance-wise, but boosts range to 300+ miles too.

Compare Kia EV6 lease deals

Available now: Kia EV9

Arguably one of the most stunning EVs to be revealed this year, the EV9’s boxy shape is a breakaway from the EV6. But that’s no bad thing. We think it looks great. It’s also available to order right now.

Land Rover

Land Rover hasn’t launched an all-electric vehicle yet, but it has the know-how of the creators of the I-Pace and has a wide range of PHEV vehicles currently on offer. The company says that three of every five vehicles it sells by 2030 will be zero-emissions models, with diesel set to be phased out completely by 2025.

Lexus

With a long history of producing hybrids, Lexus is ahead of the game as far as plug-in tech goes. However, to date, only one model is all-electric, but there’ll be plenty more EVs based on a new platform over the coming years.

Available now: Lexus UX

Lexus UX 300e

The Lexus UX 300e is the brand’s first all-electric model, and it’s available to lease right now. With up to 196 miles of range coming courtesy of its 54.3kWh battery, it’s capable of 50kW DC fast-charging, allowing it to charge from 0-80% in less than an hour. With its premium styling and quality interior, we should see more all-electric Lexus models hit the market soon.

Available now: Lotus Eletre

Lotus Eletre

The Eletre is arguably the most important car for Norfolk-based Lotus for decades. Not only is it the brand’s first EV, but it’s its first SUV, too. Aiming to take on the established premium SUV crowd, this stunning looking model gets a four-wheel drive platform and almost 600hp.

Coming soon: Lotus Emiya

Lotus Emiya

Focusing on an all-electric future, it’ll be launching another four-door car in the shape of the Emiya. It’ll be closely based on the Eletre’s drivetrain, utilising the same battery pack. Specs and an official launch are to be confirmed, but it’ll be aiming to take on the Porsche Taycan when it arrives.

Coming soon: Lotus Evija

Lotus Evija

The Lotus Evija will be one of the most powerful cars in the world when it arrives. Purported to produce up to 2000hp, it’ll get from 0-62mph in under three seconds and be electronically limited to 218mph. With stunning looks and cutting-edge tech, this is an all-electric British hypercar.

Maxus

Maxua Mifa

The Maxus brand has been operating in the UK for a while, mainly within the commercial market. But not it’s introduced an all-new passenger car that claims to offer S-Class levels of comfort and space. It’s one of several Chinese brands that are now operating within the UK. Do you think it’s worth the premium?

Mazda

Mazda had previously stated that it would stick to petrol power for as long as possible, but it’s also starting to build EVs. The MX-30 is available now, while there’ll be an all-new platform to launch a trio of vehicles on by 2025.

Available now: Mazda MX-30

Mazda MX-30

The Mazda MX-30 looks fantastic. Its bubbly crossover styling includes design cues harking back to the fun RX-8 sports car – check out the rear doors! However, it’s somewhat let down by a range of just 126 miles – that’s decent enough for a city car, but not quite up to the standard of other all-electric family crossovers.

Compare Mazda MX-30 lease deals

Coming soon: Three EVS by 2025

No technical details of future Mazda electric vehicles have been announced, but Mazda is planning to launch three more models by 2025. They’ll share the same platform as the brand’s hybrid range, with the company aiming for 25% of its global sales to be all-electric by 2030.

Mercedes

Like other German premium brands, Mercedes has a solid plan to offer an electrified model of its entire range by 2030. Known as the EQ range, there’s a number already available to lease, while a plethora of new models are set for launch in 2022 and 2023. Despite the new platforms, all EQ models are available in a range of recognisable trim levels including AMG Line.

Available now: Mercedes EQA

2021 Mercedes EQA

The Mercedes EQA crossover bears a striking resemblance to its larger sibling, the EQC. That’s no bad thing: Mercedes has been ahead of the game when it comes to electrification, and this small crossover has already become a popular choice. With more than 263 miles of range combined with Mercedes’ quality fittings, it’s a practical and premium EV.

Mercedes-Benz EQC Edition 1886

The EQC is Mercedes’ answer to the Audi e-tron. Refined, stylish and capable, it’s one of the flashier EVs currently available. Its 255 miles of range might not be quite as impressive as the Jaguar I-Pace or Audi e-tron, but its sumptuous tech-laden interior and ride quality put it ahead of rivals if you’re after a relaxing and refined EV.

Available now: Mercedes EQS

Mercedes-EQ, EQS, V 297, 2021

If you’re wondering what an electric S-Class looks like, the EQS answers that question. It’s sat on a dedicated electrified platform that’s been specifically designed for use under larger models. A host of battery packs are on offer, but the 107.8kWh option is capable of more than 450 miles between charges – one of the most impressive EV ranges to date.

Mercedes-AMG EQE 53 4MATIC+ (PAD, 16.02.2022)

You can consider the EQE a scaled down version of the EQS. It gets the same sleek looks and a 90kWh battery pack offering more than 400 miles of range. It also gets Mercedes’ usual plush interior and cutting-edge infotainment tech. All in all, an impressive car.

MG

MG might have been known for sporty classics such as the MGA and MGB, but since the Chinese takeover a few years ago it has been producing affordable and well-made vehicles – including EVs. The popularity of the ZS and MG5 bode well for the future, although we’ll have to wait and see if a more traditionally sporty model gets electric power.

MG Motors UK reveals MG4

The MG4 is a viable alternative to the Volkswagen ID.3. With slick styling, a zippy drivetrain and a quality cabin, it’s the best model from the brand yet. The best bit is the price. MG4s can be had for well under £300 per month on a personal lease contract. Interested? Hit the button below.

MG ZS EV

The MG ZS might onloy feature a 44.5kWh battery pack (considerably less than some rivals) but that’s most definitely reflected in its price. And despite the battery size, it’s still capable of driving more than 160 miles between charges – more than the considerably more costly Mazda MX-30. With oodles of room and decent styling, there are few more affordable ways into an EV.

MG5 EV

If outright practicality outweighs stylish looks, then the MG5 is a thoroughly good EV. It offers in excess of 200 miles of range thanks to a 48.8kWh battery, and a large 464-litre boot space. With the rear seats down, this increases to 1,456 litres. That’s mighty impressive for an EV. The interior, while not exactly premium, is of a good quality too. Combined with its 7-year warranty, it’s quite easy to see the increasing appeal of choosing an MG.

The Mini Electric is now available to lease in two-door form, but by 2025 you’ll find an electrified version of all the models in its diverse line-up, the first of which is likely to be the Clubman.

Mini Electric

Available in three-door and larger five-door form, the Mini Hatchback features a 135kW battery pack and a funky-looking interior. Some rivals have longer range, but if you’re a fan of the retro-futuristic Mini range that won’t matter too much.

The Mini Countryman is now available as an electric model too, and features a more grown up SUV look than the smaller hatches. It also benefits from Mini’s latest Operating System 9, introducing a cutting-edge OLED touchscreen. Lease deals are available right now.

Nissan

Nissan might have come up with one of the world’s most popular EVs (the Leaf), but since its inception it hasn’t really expanded its offering. That’s set to change next year though, with the arrival of the Ariya – the first of eight models that are set to launch in 2022 and 23.

In its current guise, the Nissan Leaf still makes a great choice for a family car. Its range is no longer as impressive as it once was, but it combines its electric drivetrain with a host of innovative safety features such as adaptive cruise control and Nissan’s e-pedal.

The Nissan Ariya is the the company’s second foray into the lucrative electric market, and its stunning SUV styling certainly sets it apart from the Nissans of the past.

Ora Cat 01

The Ora 03 is a compact EV that was showcased at the Munich Motor Show back in September 2021. Its list price – around £25,000 – helps it stand out from the crowd.

The Lightning Cat is a swoopy new saloon that’ll be the second Ora model to hit UK shores. Aiming to take on the likes of the Ioniq 6 and Model 3, it could get more than 300 miles of range and offers a seriously unique look. Definitely one to look out for.

Peugeot

Peugeot is leading the Stellantis charge as far as electrification goes, with ambitious plans to offer an electric version of everything in its range by 2023. We’ll have to wait and see it it pulls that one off, but expect lots of pure-electric models to hit the market soon.

Available now: Peugeot e-2008

www.matthowell.co.uk 07740 583906

Rather than making Electric-specific models, Peugeot is one of the brands that aims to offer an electric “variant” of existing cars in its range. The e-2008 is a great example of how this can be successful. It looks just like its combustion-powered siblings, but underneath you’ll find a 50kWh battery capable of up to 206 miles between charges; that’s much more than a Mini Electric, but not quite as good as a car like the Volkswagen ID.3.

The Peugeot e-208 has been praised as a fun-to-drive electric supermini with a 136hp electric motor. Inside you’ll find the usual array of screens and “i-cockpit” controls as any other Peugeot, but underneath is the same electric motor and platform you’ll find underpinning the Corsa-e. It’s another fine example of how the Stellantis group is making a success out of platform sharing.

Polestar

Swedish Polestar has made successful in-roads to the electric market, with the Polestar 2 being among the best rival to the Tesla Model 3. It’s due to launch the Polestar 3 next year, while a host of other concept cars hint at what else is to come.

Porsche

Porsche is one of the best sports car manufacturers in the world, and it’s set to make a splash on the electric scene. In fact, it’s already done it – just look at the stunning Taycan. With more electrified models coming soon, an electric 911 is still a way off – but it’ll be here by 2030.

Porsche Taycan

2021 Porsche Taycan Turbo S

How does a company renowned for its petrol-powered prowess go electric? With the Taycan of course. Porsche might still produce some of the most desirable combustion-engined cars around, but the Taycan proves it can create an EV that’s just as exhilarating and appealing. Shockingly quick and with a 300-mile range on offer, it’s a clear signal that Porsche will continue to dominate the performance market with its electric-powered products.

Porsche has taken the covers off its new all-electric Macan SUV, with the completely fresh model marking a new era for the firm’s popular SUV.

The New Macan is decidedly different from its predecessor, ushering in styling cues that we’ve seen on the Taycan. This not only brings the model bang up to date from a styling perspective, but also ensures it marks itself out as part of Porsche’s electric line-up.

Renault

There’s a total of eight all-electric Renaults planned by 2025, and the Megane E-Tech is the first example of its next-gen EVs. The Zoe has been around for years of course, and is still a good option for those looking to make an affordable step into electric vehicle usership.

The Renault Zoe has consistently been a hit with lease customers looking to go electric, and even years after its launch, it remains a decent choice.

They produce 130hp and 218hp respectively, and both support rapid charging of up to 130kW.

Coming soon: Renault 5

Renault 5 EV

That’s right – the Renault 5 supermini of the 80s is set to make a return. But it’ll be packed full of tech and feature an electric drivetrain. Hoping to capture some of the retro appeal that has made the Honda E a success, the 5 will be just one of several new EVs that Renault hopes will account for 30% of its global sales by 2025.

Seat

Aside from the aging Seat Mii Electric, the Spanish company is yet to launch an all-electric model. That’s mainly because its sporty sub-brand Cupra has been given the use of parent company Volkswagen’s electric architecture. It will filter down to Seat at some point, but in the meantime the company is making big strides into the hybrid market.

Skoda

Skoda is yet another company that falls under the huge Volkswagen Group brand, and to date the only all-electric model is the Enyaq iV. Expect that to change soon though – there’s been several concepts showing the Skodas of the future including the “Vision iV” – a crossover with 300 miles of range.

Skoda Enyaq iV

The Skoda Enyaq iV is the company’s first dedicated EV and shares a platform with the new Volkswagen ID.4. With a 585-litre boot and a torquey all-wheel drive system on offer, it proves to be great value for money for such a practical vehicle. Three versions are available, with the Enyaq iV 80 featuring an official 333-mile range – more than enough to worry the Tesla Model 3 – that isn’t half as practical.

Smart

Smart has now been an electric-only company for two years, and their diminutive dimensions actually make them ideal as an electric run around. There’s a new model on the horizon too, with a model expected in 2023. In the meantime, you’ve got the choice between the fortwo and forfour EQ.

Toyota is a bit late to the all-electric game, mainly because all its current line-up already feature hybrid power. This ensures its range will remain competitive over the coming years. That said, change is afoot. There’s an all-new electric Toyota crossover due next year – the first of several EVs set to hit the market over the coming years.
