The Auto Trader expert verdict:
The market for small electric cars used to be dominated by the Renault Zoe, and slightly bigger Nissan Leaf, but it’s growing rapidly, and now includes electric city cars like the Mini Electric, Honda E, VW E-Up and the Corsa-e’s sister car, the Peugeot e-208. These cars are perfect for the daily urban commute if you’ve got a charging point at home or work, keeping monthly running costs low.
Reasons to buy:
- Cheap to run
- Easy to drive
- No weird futuristic styling
