Choosing the best electric car requires careful consideration. Here at RRG Group, we’re here to help you find the perfect model for your lifestyle, which is why we’ve compiled a list of the best electric cars for various needs.
Best small electric car
A lively, agile city car, the new Peugeot e-208 is one of the best small electric cars available. With a range of up to 217 miles, it delivers a smooth and confident drive without the worry of running out of charge – even when your journey takes you further afield. Distinctively styled and equipped with the latest technology for a safe and connected drive, this smart hatch is ideal for urban motorists.
Best electric family car
The Mazda MX-30 SUV arrives in March 2021, and is already enjoying excellent reviews. Not only is it stylish and competitively priced, it also offers a 124-mile range, which is perfect for the school run, work commute or weekend outings. Access to the rear is easy – especially useful if you have young children – and with a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, it’ll keep you and your family protected.
Best electric SUV
A rugged, versatile SUV, the Toyota RAV4 PHEV is among the best of the bunch thanks to its four-wheel drive capability, dynamic performance and high levels of comfort. Its 46-mile all-electric range is impressive, while its ability to tackle challenging terrain makes it flexible for those whose travels take them off the beaten track. And with a clean, intuitive cockpit, it’s a pleasure to drive.
Best large electric car
Few electric vehicles cater to those needing space as adroitly as the Nissan E-NV200 Combi. Available as a five or seven seater and with a range of up to 187 miles, it’s ideal for large families or passenger-carrying businesses. The sliding side door makes access easy, while the configurable interior ensures it’s a flexible choice – and with plenty of onboard safety features, it keeps you protected.
Best electric business car
The award-winning Skoda Superb iV is a plug-in hybrid with everything you need for a busy schedule. Available as either a hatch or estate, it provides up to 37 miles of all-electric range and cuts emissions to as little as 28g/km. Its spacious cabin means you’ll be comfy on the road, while the advanced onboard features make on-the-go communication a breeze.
Best electric car for towing a caravan
The weight of electric vehicles means there are few zero-emissions models that are viable for towing, so choosing a plug-in hybrid is your best bet if you have a caravan. The latest Kia Niro PHEV can pull a 1,300kg braked trailer, making it ideal for towing a small to medium sized caravan. Equipped with roof rails, an array of driver assistance features, and a towing pack as standard, it’s a practical and eco-friendly option that delivers a rewarding drive.
Best luxury electric car
Offering sporty performance and supreme comfort, the Lexus UX 300e is a model for those who want a clean, flexible ride with a generous helping of luxury. Sprinting from 0-62mph in just 7.5 seconds and available in three trim options, it ensures you feel at home from the moment you step inside. Premium features include heated seats, wireless smartphone charging, a head-up display and 13-speaker Mark Levinson sound system, depending on variant.
