The number of pure electric vehicles on the market is currently pretty small – but it’s growing all the time. More and more manufacturers are dipping their toes into the green arena every year and, as they do, the choice for buyers swells.
Currently there’s everything from superminis to SUVs powered by batteries but choosing one that suits you and your lifestyle is no easy feat.
Just as with conventionally fuelled vehicles, you need to consider space, practicality and style when opting for an EV – not to mention that all-important battery range.
There are also two different ways of buying an EV. As with standard cars you can either buy one outright or on a monthly finance plan.
On top of this, though, you will also need to consider the cost of the battery. Some manufacturers include this in the price of the cars, others offer a monthly lease scheme that will charge you an extra fee for the battery hire.
Here, we’ve pulled together the top 10 electric vehicles on sale today to help ease your decision-making process. Remember, all prices take into account the £4,500 plug-in grant from the government.
