Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

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.
