In this blog we will check the TOP 6 electric cars for year 2021.
TOP 6 – Kia e-Niro
Kia e-Niro banishes range anxiety. In fact, the 253 miles that it managed in Real Range test is one of the best figures recorded so far. You also get good practicality, performance, comfort and equipment, although prices have risen significantly since 2019, when Whatcar named the e-Niro Car of the Year.
TOP 5 – BMW iX3
Aside from some styling details and the fact the combustion engine has been replaced with an electric motor, the iX3 is essentially a BMW X3 – and that’s a good thing. It means you’re getting a practical and classy SUV with the best infotainment system around. And it means it steers and handles better than rivals, while also providing a comfortable ride. Zero emissions and a long range between charges are merely very welcome bonuses.
TOP 4 – Fiat 500
If ever a car was born for urban driving, it’s the new Fiat 500. It’s shorter than its key rivals, so fits into spaces they won’t, while a tight turning circle, ultra-light steering and great forward visibility make it especially easy to manoeuvre as it darts around tight city streets in a refined, smooth manner. As a bonus, it has a good range, so isn’t just limited to the urban sprawl. And, of course, unlike rivals, it’s available as a convertible.
TOP 3 – Porsche Taycan
If you’re looking for all the usual electric car benefits but want something that’s also absolutely thrilling to drive, the Porsche Taycan is the car for you. It’s even reasonably practical and wonderfully classy inside, so while it’s certainly not cheap, it’s worth every penny.
TOP 2 – Volkswagen ID.3
Thanks to rear-wheel drive, accurate steering and fine body control, the ID.3 is enjoyable to drive. What’s more, its practicality is up with the roomiest family hatchbacks, predicted resale values are superb and it’ll be cheap to run for both company car drivers and private buyers. Throw in strong performance and a long range, and it’s a brilliant choice.
TOP 1 – Tesla Model 3
Few cars received as much hype before their launch as the Model 3, and even fewer can match what it offers in reality. Tesla’s most affordable car is great to drive, packed full of tech, fast (ridiculously so in Performance guise) and surprisingly practical. Factor in a competitive price, especially given its sheer pace, and it’s not only the best all-round electric car on sale today, but one of the best choices full stop.
