Volvo XC40 Recharge

The electric version of the XC40 (petrols and hybrids are also available) has Volvo’s new Google-driven infotainment screen on board and is good for about 250 miles between charges. On top of that, it has Volvo’s great safety systems and legendary comfort in smart, practical packaging.

Surprisingly large in the flesh, the ID.4 is a seriously robust, chunky electric car, with suitably futuristic road presence. Volkswagen claims range of 250-300 miles on one charge. You also get a white leather steering wheel and a stripped-back, minimalist interior with lots of space to stretch out.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

The choice is all yours, depending on budget. Choose from a range of between 249 and 339 miles according to performance and model and rear- or all-wheel drive. There’s performance aplenty (0-62mph in 5.8 seconds) and those looks turn heads. All at a reasonable price.

Tesla Model X

This is the massive, futuristic one. Ice white, wipe-clean vegan ‘leather’, a massive touchpad and gullwing doors maintain the wow factor. We struggle to see it as an SUV, but that’s how Tesla markets it. We love the six-seat layout and the Tesla Supercharger experience.

DS3 Crossback E-Tense

This is the small one. It’s cute, quirky and French, and you’ll love the small size, which makes it perfect for city parking. It’s generously equipped, and you should be good for about 200 miles on one charge.

Q4 Sportback E-Tron

We love the coupe/SUV styling of Audi’s Sportback range. The Q4 Sportback joins other E-Tron models in a rapidly expanding electrified range from Audi. The entry-level Q4 35 offers 217 miles whereas the Q4 40 version offers a claimed maximum range of 328 miles, which should be enough to overcome any anxiety over reaching your intended destination.
